Judy Blume is one of my favorite authors and as a kid, I read all of her books.  A standout for me, and other young girls, was “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” It’s an amazing story about growing up and it deals with typical issues faced by early adolescent girls. I remember reading the book when I was about 10 years old. If you are into acting, Lionsgate will begin production on the movie version of  “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” in April and you can be an extra!

The film stars Abby Ryder Fortson from the “Ant-Man” films as Margaret, and Rachel McAdams as Margaret’s mother, Barbara. Tona B. Dahlquist Casting will be holding an open casting call for extras. According to the casting company’s Facebook page, all ages, races, and types are needed, and all extras will be paid.

If you’re interested, submit the following information:

  • Two current photos – one full-length and one close-up. Cellphone photos are permitted. Photos should show current hair color and length, as well as facial hair.
  • Name (for minors, a parent’s name)
  • Age
  • Cellphone number

  • Complete clothing sizes, including shoes.

In addition to general extras, the casting company is looking for vehicles from the 1960s and 1970s. Car owners can send a photo of their vehicle along with the make, model, and year. Owners should include the city and state in which the car is located, their name, and their cellphone number.
