(Above: Slidell, LA native George Porter recounts his experiences as a WWII Tuskegee Airman – a must-watch testimony from one of the elders. “We did things we weren’t supposed to do,” he says. “We succeeded. And we wouldn’t let nobody stop us.”)

Hey — I’m kinda pleasantly surprised Lucas is taking the time to use actual black men in his new movie. Why not just use a green screen, find just a few brown people, reproduce them using Industrial Light & Magic special effects and paint them all blue or something? (Sorry, obligatory dig at Avatar’s bizarre sci-fi racial politics).

Lucasfilms is based here in California. If you live in the Bay Area, here’s a way for you to pay tribute personally to the mighty Tuskegee Airmen (and make a little bread plus get a free haircut at the same time). Wanna be in the movies? Keep reading below, unless you are bald…

(Thanks Sean Dugar for the tip.)

Beau Bonneau Casting in San Francisco is currently working on a George Lucas Film “Red Tails” starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrance Howard. This is a story about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American Combat Squadron in WWII in the 1940’s.

Seeking Non-union African American males for extra work to portray pilots and ground crew.
Age Range: 18-35. Height requirement: 5’7″- 6’1″. Waist requirement: 31-34. Must be fit and in shape. Also must have hair on head. Because bald heads were not the trend in the 1940’s, we are not looking for bald heads.

IMPORTANT: Everyone is required to go to a wardrobe fitting in San Rafael, prior to the shoot and all men will be receiving military haircuts at the fitting. You will receive an additional $10 for the haircut and one quarter check for the fitting.

Shoot location will be in Sonoma. You must have your own transportation.

Regarding shoot date: Wed. March 24. Must be avail early morning to late evening, without conflicts.

Movie shoots may last 10-12 hours or more. We never know the start time or exact location until the day/evening before. Saying you’re available means without interruption, from Very Early Morning to Late-Night. If selected, the non-union film extra rate is California minimum wage: $64.00 for up to
8 hours and overtime applies after 8 hours. This rate is set by production, not Beau Bonneau Casting.

* For proof of citizenship, all extras must have either a current passport or 2 pieces of id: a valid photo ID or drivers license with either a social security card or original birth certificate to bring to set, or you cannot be employed by production.
