Couples, Others Needed Soon As Extras in REAGAN

The major feature film REAGAN, now filming in the Guthrie, OK, is still looking for extras to appear in the film as early as Monday.

Many of the extras listed in the breakdown below have already been requested, but since they are now on very different shoot dates, we are asking all interested parties to apply again. This will let the casting office know you are available on the new shoot dates listed.

REAGAN tells the story of of how a young boy escapes poverty, finds his way to Hollywood, and then becomes the 40th President of the United States, ready to take on the Soviet Union.

The film stars Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan, David Henrie, Jon Voight and several actors not yet announced.

The film is directed by Sean McNamara (SOUL SURFER, EVE STEVENS, THAT’S SO RAVEN). It is written by Howard Klausner (SPACE COWBOYS).

Extras will be paid a guarantee of $80/day for up to 8 hours of filming. Anything over 8 hours will incur overtime. There is additional pay for COVID-19 testing and wardrobe fittings. The COVID-19 test is a simple, non-invasive cheek swab. See below.

All extras will be required to come to Guthrie for a COVID-19 test (Paid at $10/hour for a guarantee of 2 hours) four to five days prior to filming, and a wardrobe fitting on set (paid the same rate) two days prior to filming. This is mandatory and cannot be skipped. The COVID-19 test takes just moments and can happen any time between the hours of 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. COVID testing cannot happen at any other location. It has to be handled through production.

Wardrobe fittings occur during the hours of 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and take about 30 minutes. Casting will do their best to work with your schedule for fittings.
