“Stranger Things” is Casting Old Cars and People Willing to Get Perms
This could be your chance to hang out in the Upside Down.
If you’re impatiently awaiting the next installment of the spook-tacular ‘80s throwback series “Stranger Things,” you could pass the time by earning some bucks being an extra.
Set in the summer of 1985, “Stranger Things” season 3 is filming and is casting for adults and kids to play extras. It’s also looking for “vintage” vehicles (model years 1960 to 1985).
Might I suggest the ‘82 DeLorean?
How to Get Cast on “Stranger Things” Season 3
If you’re selected, you’ll need to be available for filming in and around Atlanta from April through fall 2018.
But don’t expect to rake in star WInona Ryder’s reported $300,000 per episode.
Instead, the “Stranger Things” casting call states you’ll earn $75 for an eight-hour day. Your vintage car is apparently a bigger star, since it can snag $175/day — not a bad haul for your 1980 Dodge Aspen woody wagon.
And how can you compare a paycheck with the priceless chance to meet Eleven?
The online casting call form asks pretty standard questions about height and weight, but the final question is whether you’d be willing to have your hair cut and permed.
It is a show set in the 1980s, after all.
