UPDATE: Insurgent Casting Calls for “Scruffy Extras” in Atlanta

Insurgent Title


As previously reported, casting for extras in the highly anticipated “Divergent” sequel is abound and the start of filming really close. An update on requirements for more extras that are needed for the film has surfaced and we wanted to share the info. If you are in Atlanta or anywhere near, and meet the requirements below, you should give this a go:

“Divergent” sequel “Insurgent” is going to be filming in Atlanta and needs lots of extras. The movie stars Shailene Woodleyand Miles Teller — who appeared in the indie charmer “The Spectacular Now,” filmed in Athens — along with Kate Winslet, Theo James and others.

Casting folks are “looking for in-shape, preferably tan, males and females, ages 29 to 60s, who look like they are ‘natural.'” You need to look a little scruffy. Think shaggy hair. Not too terribly long, but it should look like you and your barber are totally on a break. Any ethnicity is fine but if you’re caucasian you can’t be too pale. These folks will play characters who spend a lot of time outdoors.

Here’s the latest info:

“Seeking males & females that have the following looks:

Athletic & A Little ShaggyBeefy with a beard or light scruff

70’s Hair do’s 

Trimmed beard – sathletes in need of a hair cut

Fit Construction-Workers in need of a hair cut

Unkempt or Unruly HairTall, Thin & Naturally Attractive or Beautiful

Balding Men that do not shave their heads

This would be for May 27-30, maybe longer. Send photos of yourself, your height, weight, age, and phone number to Mineral.Peaceful@gmail.com with “Long hair, don’t care” in the subject line.

By the way if you’re willing to start growing your hair out now, that can work. So if your well-scrubbed self doesn’t mind scruffing it up a little, this could be an opportunity for you as well.
