Extras are needed for “Untitled Pickle Project,” a Seth Rogen movie filming in Pittsburgh this weekend. Here, Rogen attends the premiere of “Good Boys” on Aug. 14 in Los Angeles.

Are you an Eastern European-looking man who wears a size 40 suit and a size 10 shoe?

If so, you could be cast as a military guard in “Untitled Pickle Project,” a Seth Rogen movie filming this weekend in Pittsburgh.

Based on a Simon Rich novella, the movie “stars Rogen as Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1918 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family,” according to Variety.

Working a factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is preserved in the brine for 100 years, emerging unchanged in present-day Brooklyn. He eventually finds his only surviving relative — great-grandson Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen) — and struggles to understand both him and the modern world.

Interested extras should email name, phone number, location, age, height, weight, suit and shoe size, along with neck, sleeve, waist and inseam measurements to [email protected]

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.
