Be an Extra on Rock of Ages

Monday, July 18, 1-8pm – Sun Life Stadium, 2267 NW 199th Street, Miami Gardens

Director Adam Shankman is looking for a few thousand extras to rock out like it’s 1987 to songs such as “Wanted: Dead Or Alive” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The filming will begin at 1 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. or as long as it takes to get what they want. Other performers may include Mary J. Blige, Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough. The rest of the cast includes Alec Baldwin, Brian Cranston, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Russell Brand.
Extras must be 16 or older and are asked to dress the part, with period hair, makeup and all-black outfits. No cameras or recording devices will be permitted. Prize giveaways will take place every half hour, and will give a “special gift” to the person(s) providing the “getting ready” or parking lot picture or video that best personifies “the bestest and most mega jammin’ rock-pounding, face-melting ’80s rock god or goddess.”
“Rock of Ages” starring Cruise as the womanizing rocker Stacee Jaxx, tells the story of a boy from South Detroit and a small-town girl who move to Los Angeles in 1987 to live their rock ‘n’ roll dreams. Much of the filming has taken place in locations around South Florida, including the scene above, with Cruise performing at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale. The film, based on the hit Broadway music, is scheduled to hit theaters in June 2012 from Warner Bros. Pictures.
