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.
