Multiple calls for bearded men in New Mexico OHI

Things are about to get “ridiculous” and/or “shuffled” around here (I’m just guessing), with some very big productions headed New Mexico way. In anticipation of the demand for multitudes of local men who are fully bearded, EG Casting has put out the following alert:

“…It is that time again for all our male extras. There are several big projects coming for men with beards, so please start growing out those beards again and register at www.egcasting.com with updated or new profiles. There will be lots of work for those guys with beards. Can’t announce yet,” – Elizabeth Gabel
