Ang Lee Needs More Hippies
There will be another Taking Woodstock casting call tomorrow from 10am to 8pm at the Lebanon Valley Speedway Clubhouse (1746 Route 20 in New Lebanon, NY). According to this article in the Berkshire Eagle, the film plans to hire 6,000 extras at $100 per day -- in particular, the casting director is recruiting college-age-looking 18-to-30-year-olds who pass for members of the 1960s counterculture. I'm still waiting for my call to play a disgruntled townie. Meanwhile, Annalena got her hair trimmed in anticipation of her first day of high school, but it's still long enough if Ang needs an underage hippie.
