TROY (WWJ) – Want to be in the new “Transformers 4” movie? You’ll have the chance to make it or break it this weekend.
Casting directors for the movie will be looking to hire actors as paid extras from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 at the Somerset Inn in Troy. The part requires actors to be available for filming from June through August.
Directors will be looking for males and females at least 18-year-old who can play the part of a clean-cut business person, military or FBI agent. They’ll also be casting Asian families of all ages.
Those interested in applying are asked to dress the part and bring a pen for filling out applications. Photos will be taken at the casting call at no charge.
Somerset Inn is located at 2601 W. Big Beaver Road in Troy, 48084.
The plot of “Transformers 4” will pick up following the conclusion of “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” when the Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. An ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his cross-hairs and “an epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.”
Former Transformers leading man Shia LaBeouf has said he will not star in this yet-untitled sequel. According to unconfirmed reports, actors Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor are slated to appear in the film.
