Football movie filming in Crockett area seeking extras

Want to be in a movie?

A feature film titled "One Heart" is currently shooting on location in the Crockett area, and the film makers have issued a casting call for local men and women of all ages and ethnicities to work as extras.

"We are looking for locals to work as extras in various roles," Tina Kerr, the film's casting director said in an e-mail. "No acting experience required."

"One Heart" is based on a true story with a positive message. It will star Matthew Lillard, Marc Blucas, and Romeo, and filming started in early October in the Grapeland/Southlake area. Filming will continue in the Crockett area from Nov. 12- Nov. 16.

The movie is based on the real-life events surrounding a 2008 high school football game.

"'One Heart' is the amazing story of the players and coaches from Gainsville State School and Grapevine Faith - two groups from diverse backgrounds whose paths cross to create life-changing hope and inspiration for both teams," the movie's official Web site states."Two teams. Two cultures. One heart."

Dallas Cowboy players Jason Witten and Miles Austin participated in a scene filmed at a Salvation Army center, according to the Web site.

Kerr said the film's crew will be shooting on a Monday-Friday schedule. However, the time requirements will vary, depending on the role in which the individual is cast. The filming will be on location in the Crockett area.

"Extras should be prepared to work a 12 hour-plus day on the day chosen," Kerr said.

Extras will receive the non-union extra rate of $58 for 8 hours, plus overtime after 8 hours.

Some specific extra types include:


Family members of kids in juvenile detention

Gang members

Juvenile detention inmates

Juvenile detention guards

Office and administrative types

Stand-ins for actors who are similar in height, weight, and hair color

Those interested in signing up should visit this Web site: and click on Talent and then Register and Talent application. A recent photo that was taken in the past 6 months will be required. Kerr said that no children under the age of 18 are being hired at this time.
