The “Yellowstone” series starring Kevin Costner is back to filming its fourth season in Montana, and extras are needed for some scenes next week.
Currently, the casting department is looking for extras to shoot scenes on June 10 and June 11 in Hamilton, Montana, but actors should be prepared to work late, possibly until 2 a.m.
The roles the department is casting for include: protestors (men between 18 and 35 are needed, as well as ethnic men and women older than 18) and an on-air reporter (men between 30 and 55 who are clean cut).
All extras are paid at least $122.50, with a $35 gas bump added on.
Men and women who have interesting vans (Winnebagos, Airstreams or any other older, “hippie-ish” vehicles) are also encouraged to contact the casting department. Their vans can either be dropped off for three days and then picked up (with the pay being $600), or the van’s owner can bring the vehicle to the set and also work as an extra, getting paid for both their time and the vehicle.
Coronavirus testing is required for all extras.
Anyone interested should submit their name, age, phone number, height and weight, their clothing sizes and the town they live in to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the casting call can be found on the Yellowstone Montana Extras Facebook page.
This fourth season is set to debut sometime later this year, with a “Yellowstone” prequel also slated to premiere on Paramount+ sometime this year.
“Y: 1883” will follow the Dutton family as it journeys west through the Great Plains “toward the last bastion of untamed America,” according to a series description provided by Deadline.
“It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana,” the description said.
No further information has been provided since the teaser dropped back in February.
The current “Yellowstone” series follows the Dutton family, led by Costner’s John Dutton, as it runs the largest contiguous ranch in the United States and its dealings with bordering Native reservations and national parks.
