John Green's 'The Fault in Our Stars' was filmed in Pittsburgh.

The feature film “The Fault in Our Stars,” which begins shooting in Pittsburgh this fall, is looking for teens and young adults 13 to 23 years old who have been affected by cancer to appear as extras in the film.

The movie is based on a popular young adult novel by John Green about teenagers who meet in a cancer support group. It stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

The roles, which are open to current and former cancer patients, are non-speaking and no experience is necessary. Those cast will be needed for approximately two to five days of filming this September. All roles are paid positions.

If interested, email Nancy Mosser Casting at tfiosextras@gmail.com. Include a recent snapshot and a brief description of your experience with cancer. Please include age, parent's name (for those under 18) and phone number.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
