  2. Universal must have

    Money,
    Free Bar
    Sense of humour!
     
  3. "You must have military experience ( Cadets, Army, RAF, TA etc)"

    Some superb research on who makes up the user base of this site there...

    Why not let the Walts in? Save the cost of uniforms, hell they'd probably even pay for the warry cred.

    Of course they may just have had the Booties in mind when posting, they were part of this site last time I looked. And regardless that they are part of RN it is not hard to make the 'army' connection, one would have thought.
     
  5. I'd be with you Jimbo except I'm too long in the tooth.
    I was an extra in National Velvet which had loads filmed in Birmingham University years ago.
    We all got a state of the art (then) shell suit which at the time was high fashion, a **** off expensive pair of trainers, a running vest and shorts, our scran for three days (top notch) and an envelope with 60 squid in it thanks very much.
    My mate played an extra in the Lord of the Rings in NZ and has a spectacular suit of armour and sword. Thats because he was a Wafu when in the mob so was naturally as ugly as ****. He was one of them big orrible *******. They only computer generated them when there was millions of the bastards all at once, small scenes were extras.
     
  6. They want bra size, this could be my sort of film
     
  7. No mention of stockings though so I'm out.

    I assume it's being filmed in South Wales so they can shoot the battlefield and trenches scenes in downtown Newport to save on the post-production CGI budget..?
     
  9. Girl I knew was a gripper in a massage parlour, when the punter had had his massage she gripped his knob and asked if he wanted "any extras" are we talking about the same thing.

  11. If they were re-making Zulu, Rummers would be in with a chance as the old git waving his spear up on the hill.
     
  12. Yeah I know all the words to the songs.
     
  13. "Don't throw, that bloody spear, at me" An opportunity for a classic line missed.
     
  14. You just sing jibberish and end the verse with a deep 'arumba' for your role, you gigantic coon.

    Ageist must be under 50? There should be a law against that?
    And they want a photo, well I am definitely out, they will go for all the ugly ones so as not to detract from the film stars?
     
  16. Who has easy access to South Wales apart from the South Welsh,the place is like Brigadoon
