NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Have you ever wondered what it's like to be in a movie? Well, become a movie extra! Central Casting Louisiana is located at 1450 Poydras St. Suite 1420 in the Benson Tower.

Just show up Monday-Thursday at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. and fill out a registration packet, detailing your talents. They will also take your picture and measurements so when you're booked your information will already be on file.

You'll be able to register your animals and vehicle, too. You don't have to bring them with you, just photos.

Once you have filled out the information they need, then you're in the system. You just wait for a phone call and when you get that call, you'll be paid to be in a movie. It's just that simple! And who knows, you may see your favorite movie star in person!
