Hello, I’m James and I help teach aspiring background actors (movie extras) land roles in feature films, TV shows, small budget films and other film projects around the world.

Personally, I’ve had extra roles with famous A-Listers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Jesse Plemons, Brenan Fraser, Meg Ryan, David Duchovny and more.

I’ve also worked on sets by famous directors such as Martin Scorsese.

Whether you simply want to be an extra in a movie to check it off your bucket list, or use it as a stepping stone to advance your acting career, the advice within BackgroundActingJobs.com will maximize your chances of success.

This site has two primary goals.  The first is to help you find current and upcoming movie and TV projects you might be interested in.

The second goal is to provide you with tips, tricks and tutorials to help maximize your chances of being selected as an extra.

Once you become a background extra, your foot is officially in the door, and who knows… it could lead to you becoming the next Brad Pitt or Megan Fox.  Yes, they both started as background actors.

If you have any questions or having difficulty finding casting call information on a specific production, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help you out.

Good luck and we’ll see you at the movies!
