Tulsa King, a new mob series starring Sylvester Stallone, is looking to fill out a concert scene with some extra wooks.
Okay, they didn’t say “wooks”—not exactly, anyway—but the casting call from Freihofer Casting is pretty clear: “A large group of hippies and freaks, aged 18-65, are needed Thursday and Friday, June 16 and 17 in Oklahoma City to appear in the the Paramount+ television series TULSA KING. The people will play ‘Deadheads’, ‘Phishheads’, musical festival types, plus concert venders [sic] and security.” The call for festy extras was covered on local TV news by Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO. As KOCO anchor Abigail Ogle noted, “They say free spirits and artistic types are welcome.”
So, you know… wooks.
Pay for background performers in Tulsa King is a guaranteed $100 for up to 10 hours of filming. Anything over 10 hours on a shoot day will incur overtime. A free, pre-engagement COVID-19 test is required prior to the outdoor filming days, compensated at $36.36 for non-work days.
Per Variety, “Tulsa King follows New York mafia capo Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi (Stallone) just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a ‘crew’ from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.”
Tulsa King also stars Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Jay Will, A.C. Peterson, and Garrett Hedlund. The new show, created by Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) with The Sopranos‘ Terence Winter as a showrunner, writer, and executive producer, is due to premiere on Paramount+ on November 13th.
