The facade has been under construction along Pioneer Ave. in Agassiz for several weeks

Casting call for extras this weekend

Wayward Pines series shooting begins August 19 in Agassiz

Are you looking for a little extra work, and maybe a chance to run shoulders with Hollywood stars?

Then make your way to the casting call for Wayward Pines, the 10-episode dramatic series shooting in Agassiz now until February. A casting session for extras is being held Sat., Aug. 10 at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa.

The production company is hoping to hire locally, and shooting is a few days a month, starting Aug. 19.

Hopefuls will have their photos taken. The casting session runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Starring in the series is Matt Dillon, who is well-known for his roles in The Outsiders, Drugstore Cowboy, Crash and There’s Something About Mary.

Wayward Pines is a mystery drama, set in a strange but bucolic town. The story follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke after he is in a car accident and becomes trapped in Wayward Pines, left with no money, cell phone or identification. As he tries desperately to leave, it becomes obvious he is immersed in a conspiracy.

Also listed to act in the series is actress Carla Gugino, who played has multiple screen credits, including Californication, Chicago Hope, Watchmen and Spy Kids.

The series will be shot along Pioneer Ave., which has been undergoing transformation over the past few weeks. The north side of the street along Pioneer Park now includes a facade of Wayward Pines. That set will remain in place until shooting wraps up in February.
