Here's chance to be in 'Traffic'




By Margaret A. McGurk
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        There is still time — though not much — to apply for a spot as an extra in Traffic, the Michael Douglas thriller that will be filmed partly in Ohio.

        On Thursday, the casting office put out out a call for applicants to fill 100 extra jobs for the few days the film company will be in Columbus.

        Anyone seeking those jobs (restricted to people at least 18 years old) must submit a head shot, 3 inches by 5 inches or larger, to TRAFFIC — Columbus, 7201 Melrose Ave., #D, Los Angeles CA 90046. The back of the photo must include the applicant's name, phone number, height and weight, and must be received in Los Angeles no later than May 15.

        Meanwhile, Winters Casting, 7116-C Pippin Road, Cincinnati 45239, is still accepting last-minute photos and resumes from people who want to be among the estimated 700 extras who will be needed in Cincinnati. A live casting call is expected to be scheduled early in May, though no date has been set.

        For more information, call Winters Casting at 729-0222 or the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Film Commission at 784-1744.
