    Do they have postings on a website, I didn't pay attention to how the prequels were handled. I"d take a year off to be on the set!

    They will go through extra casting agents.

    Just show up the day of the shoot. Walk up to them in Tunisia and ask to be in the background.

    Depends on where they shoot. For things in La they use Central Casting, where you have to go register and apply, call in daily to hear about possible background gigs that are shooting in the next couple days. But you may have no idea what they are for when you accept. I assume this process is similar in Austrlia or the UK where they have shot.

    ... basically I'm just explaining this to say that it ain't gonna happen.

    With Disney in the pilot-chair it might be hard for anybody in the UK to get cast as an extra - though Disney have used the UK before (Thor, Captain America) to name a couple of recent ones - so fingers crossed. I imagine like Bond and Thor they will use Mad Dog Casting & Universal Extras!

    They filmed the Hunger Games here and they had casting calls for extras. The lines were about two parsecs long. I have a couple of girlfriends who actually stood in them.

    Become famous and then twitter that you'd like to appear in the new movie in some capacity.
