    The extras casting company (Extras Only) will explain that.

  22. kelly says:

    I just signed for a job to be on an episode of leverage for season 5. But I’m a little lost because I told them that I was available and I haven’t been emailed any further instructions.

    Thank you,

    Kelly mccauley

  23. ranielle says:

    If you signed up with Extras Only to be an extra on Leverage or Grimm, they’ll be in touch if they need you. Unfortunately, we can’t help at all other than posting this information, since they’re a totally separate company from us. You’ll need to contact them. Good luck!

  24. kelly says:

    I thought I recently heard a rumor that grimm might be changing its filming location. Is that true?

    Thank you.

  29. Rose says:

    Thank you! I had a general audition with Cast Iron Studios, and was wondering if there was anything else I should do to improve my chances? I am repped, have a casting frontier site, and gave them a headshot, and resume. Can you think of anything else I can do?
    Thanks a lot,

  30. Doug says:

    I have had a profile @ extras only for almost 3 years and never been contacted, even with experience.

  31. Jeff vangorder says:

    I have a profile with exploer tallent please contact me if I can be used ans an extra. I am an ex-navy guy eworking as a nurse here in portland at the VA hospital please let me know if you need an extra!!!!!!!!!

  32. ranielle says:

    You should contact Extras Only (you can use the link in the blog post).

  33. kelly says:

    I have a profile with the casting frontier. Is it possible to send that to extras only and sign up that way?

    Thank you,

  34. ranielle says:

    Extras Only is a completely separate company from us and I don’t believe they use Casting Frontier. You’ll want to follow their instructions for signing up to be an extra.
