Ang Lee movie seeks crazy football fan extras for Georgia Dome scene

Are you ready for some football? Acclaimed filmmaker Ang Lee is in Atlanta now working on “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.”
Casting folks need a ton of folks for scenes filming at the Georgia Dome this week, including fans in face paint.
The film is based on the novel by Ben Fountain, about U.S. soldiers sent on a PR campaign to rally support for the war in Iraq. The cast includes Vin Diesel, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Chris Tucker and Ric Reitz.
