Help wanted: NBC drama 'Crisis' needs 'Aryan nation types'

The upcoming NBC political drama “Crisis” is looking for extras to play “Aryan nation types,” according to an ad posted on 4 Star Casting’s Facebook page. Filming will tentatively take place Wednesday.

“We need males and females to play members of the Aryan nation for a bar scene,” says the ad for "Crisis," which films in Chicago but is set in Washington DC. “Ages 21-55, Male and female, Caucasian, shaved heads, tattoos, facial hair (obviously not for the ladies), skinhead types.”

And here's the best part: “If you have experience with weapons, this is a plus.”

I should point out that 4 Star Casting has nothing to do with the roles written on “Crisis.” It’s only part of the casting process.

Potential extras are being asked to email extras4crisis@gmail.com and put “Pureblood bar” in the subject line. And if you want to let a coworker or uncle know they’d be a perfect fit for this role, good luck with that.

For those of you who would like to be an extra but don’t match the description above, there are other options listed on our casting calls page.  NBC's “Chicago Fire,” for example, is looking for African-American “gangster types.”
