    Hey guys whats goin on this is Jimmy reporting from Chicago. I went to the casting call today and it was pretty cool. It was at the Chicago Academy for the Arts pretty close to downtown, the skyline was pretty much next door...LOL:D  and I got there around 9:00am and the line was already around the block, but it wasnt that bad though. As soon as I got there that is when the rain started. So I stood in a monsoon for two hours, but I didnt care I was so excited. We got in there and they took us down in the basement, in this room that sat about 80 to 100 people, and as soon as they handed me the application with a giant Transformers 3 logo on it thats when it hit me:D  The casting coordinator was awesome and she talked about the filming schedule and how they are going to be taking over the loop, but she didnt reveal any plot points or scene info...LOL:D . We filled out an application and they took our picture. She said all the photos taken Michael Bay is going to see and he is going to pick the people he wants, now for the wait..LOL...anyway enjoy the pics:)

    Cool, let us know how it goes. I'm actually an actor, it's kind of my career at this point, and the only thing that bothers me about open casting calls is that they are 100% looks based. They don't care what you've been in, they care if you're a perfect specimen. (And keep in mind what every single extra in a Bay film looks like.) I went to an open call in NY recently for a film and it was a ridiculous sham.

    However, I'm doing all right. 4 finished films, at least 3 in the pipeline, TV pilot, voice acting jobs on a series, a commercial, 13 stage plays. I'm workin'.

    Click my imdb there. There's a Stephen King film "Stephen King's In The Deathroom" which we just completed, but isn't eligible to show up on imdb unti its first festival showing later in the summer. The other stuff is all in the works for this summer, the TV show and web series and all that. Will eventually be on imdb.

    LOL:D  No not quite man......the rate for being an extra is $66 for 8 hours of work, if they need you for more than 8 you get paid overtime......
