Many actors might have passed on the Steve Jobs role in the upcoming biopic of the iconic Apple leader, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the cast. As Variety reports, Beau Bonneau Casting is seeking locals in the San Francisco Bay Area who can passably play “vintage tech nerds.”
Sure, you won’t get to play the role of Steve Jobs, or any other important character, but if your dream is to be one of the extras on the set — including cafe patrons, press members, engineers, marketing teams and others — then you can apply for the job.
“Production’s strongest need is for Men 18-40s with flexible schedules and comb-able length hair and/or men willing to grow their hair, facial hair, sideburns to match 80s-90s time periods,” the job notice says. “Women should have natural hair colors, no chunky highlights or ultra modern styles. Overall for men and women, curls, waves and volume are a plus. Production will provide haircuts as needed.”
Based on Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography, the upcoming movie will be directed by Danny Boyle, with Aaron Sorkin penning the script. Actors Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen have already been confirmed to play Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, respectively, with actress Katherine Waterston set to take the role of Jobs’ first wife Chrisann Brennan.
