'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Producers of “Foxcatcher,” the movie being shot in the Pittsburgh area about billionaire John du Pont and Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz, are looking for men age 21 and older of all types and ethnicities to work as extras between Dec. 7 and 20.

The extras will portray characters in the wrestling world, such as arena announcers, coaches, trainers, officials, scorekeepers, photographers, journalists and wrestling fans. No experience is necessary.

A casting call will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the Latrobe room at the DoubleTree Hotel, 1 Bigelow Square, Downtown. Those auditioning should bring a non-returnable photo. The positions will be paid, up to $100 for a 12 hour day.

The movie is based on the true story of du Pont, heir to the chemical company fortune who built a wrestling training facility called Team Foxcatcher on his Pennsylvania estate. In 1996, Du Pont (Steve Carell), who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, shot and killed Schultz (Mark Ruffalo). Channing Tatum portrays Schultz's brother and fellow wrestler, Mark Schultz. Siena Miller plays Dave Schultz's wife.
