Movie Extras Needed!

IRM has been a Mecca for movie producers ever since A League of Their Own, and another big movie production at our Museum will be starting soon!  The working title for this big-budget feature is The Motorman Always Rings Twice, and it's being produced by one of the major Hollywood studios.   (We're not at liberty to say which one.)   It includes a cast of thousands, and the call has gone out for lots of extras.  Details on how and where to apply will be available soon.  So the Board has asked us to help publicize this unique opportunity.  You'll be seeing more about this in the local papers in a few days, but remember: you read it here first.

The producers are looking for people who can play to one or more of the following types:
  • Gangsters
  • Crooked lawyers
  • Hoboes and other anti-social derelicts
  • Snooty know-it-alls
  • General riff-raff
  • etc.
Now I have no idea why they think they can find people of this disreputable sort among IRM volunteers.  I certainly don't know any.  But they're professionals, they must know what they're doing.  As for myself, it will take considerable effort, but I can probably make a good impression as an anti-social derelict:

So I'm going to show up for the auditions!   How about you?

Does this mean we get to bring back illegal acres? I hear they're also looking for a couple wooden interurban cars to set on fire in order to re-create the scrapping of CA&E cars like they did at Wheaton shops. I guess a lot of it was shrouded in mystery and political corruption. Sounds like it will be a good flick! We can definitely use the money for the turntable and other projects.

They would never hire him, the make-up is all wrong.

I'm crushed. You really know how to hurt a guy.

I think if he really wanted to hurt you he would have made the comment that REAL interurbans are made of steel not wood.
