Applicants can send a picture that includes the following stats: Height, weight, clothing sizes, age and telephone to promisedlandextras@gmail.com. Put “Bar” in the subject line or "Town Hall" depending on which you prefer to work.

"Promised Land," directed by Gus Van Sant, began filming this week in the Pittsburgh area.

"Promised Land" sounds good, but I wish to suggest a film for Matt to do. You may remember the Boston Blackie films of the '40s with Chester Morris as Blackie. Turner Classic Movies is airing them on Saturdays. (Other actors also portrayed Blackie in silent films and earlier talkies.) I know this is an unorthodox way to suggest this, but I know no movie producers nor of any more direct way to convey the message that Matt would be a match for this role, as he was marvelous in "The Talented Mr. Ripley," which also concerrned an extremely complicated fellow. Blackie's creator, Jack Boyle, says of him, "To the police and the world, he is a professional crook, a skilled and daring safecracker, an incorrigible criminal made doubly dangerous by intellect. But to me, 'Blackie' is something more-- a man with more than a spark of the Divine Spirit that lies hidden somewhere in the heart of even the worst of men." This spark of the divine enlivens Matt's films perhaps unknowingly, as in "I Bought a Zoo," and can be seen if he were to enliven Boston Blackie. Sincerely, Chris Urago Las Vegas (702) 362-5825
