If you've ever wanted to be in a big Hollywood movie, this is your shot! A film is coming to Toronto to shoot and they are currently doing an open casting call to find background performers (aka extras).
Extras will be paid $14 per hour and also get to be in a Hollywood movie, so it sounds like a win-win to us. They are looking for 100 extras, both men and women, who are age 18 or older, with an emphasis on extras who are over 30 years old.
The movie is called "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and will be co-written and produced by Oscar-award winner Guillermo del Toro. It is based on a bestselling series of horror novels aimed for kids by Alvin Schwartz.
Just last year, del Toro won "Best Picture" and "Best Director" for The Shape of Water at The Academy Awards. Michael Garza, Dean Norris, Austin Abrams, Gabriel Rush and Natalie Ganzhorn, among others, will join the cast of "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark".
Owners of a Toronto bar are asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide St. E., launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on."
