As a fan of both JPK's fantastic chops and Jack O's great songs i think it is awesome that they are going to get some dough and exposure on this.
However, I do find it offensive that casting would troll for essentially free labor on the board, since Tennessee is one of the cheapest places to shoot anyway. Paying a bunch of extras the bare minimum for 4-8 hours work would be one of the lowest(if not the lowest) expenses on this movie. Being an extra might sound fun, but it is a job. Granted a low, loooowww skill level job, but still a job. You're going to stand around waiting for HOURS. Every now and then you will feign excitement for three minutes. You will hear the same song played over and over again. Repeat Ad nauseam. It will seem an awful lot like a job. This isn't your friend with a video camera you're helping out. This isn't a local production without money. This is a legitimate movie with backing, that thinks that hours of your time is worth some PBR's.
And because of the overwhelming response to cut my yard, I've decided to offer new opportunities. In short, I need my driveway paved. You will receive FREE BEER, plus you will be entered into a raffle(with 65 other people) with a chance to win a lighter (it makes fire!!) or a shiny mirror (it steals your soul!!) Also, I will take a picture of the back of your head as you pave my driveway and may post it on the internet.
