"Tag" needs lots of extras for country club, wedding, bar scenes

"Tag," a comedy about former classmates who team up for an elaborate cross-country game of tag, is filming in Atlanta and needs a ton of extras to play wedding guests, country club servers, bar patrons, kids playing on skateboards and couples of different ages, meaning lots of opportunities for just about anyone interested.

To apply, casting folks advise that you to email three clear, well-lit, recent photos of yourself along with your name, age, height, weight and phone number to Submissions@CatrettCasting.com with the appropriate word in the subject line (see below).

The project stars Jeremy Renner, who injured his wrist and elbow while filming a stunt recently , along with Atlanta native Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, appearing now in locally filmed "Baby Driver," Isla Fisher, who appeared with Hamm in Atlanta-filmed "Keeping Up With the Joneses" and Rashida Jones.
