"House of Cards,"the $100 million Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey, is looking for Washington types, where else but in the Baltimore area where the production is based.
I love all the money Baltimore is making off of being the smart and inexpensive alternative to shooting in bureaucracy-bound, incentive-challenged D.C. I love it, love it, love it.
Here's the call from the producers, and, I suppose, if a few real "Hill staffers, aides or reporters" from D.C. sent their CVs, they might be considered.
The "wealthy-looking Washington men and women" might be a problem. But I am guessing we might be able to scrounge up a few of them in Roland Park or Hunt Valley.
I am kidding, of course, D.C. folks will be considered -- and even desired, as some filming will be done in D.C., of course.
But this is great to have these productions here, and I love sticking it to D.C. with "Game Change," "VEEP" and "House of Cards."
Now, here's the real call with the information for those who think they might fit the bill:
Central Casting is looking for extras for House of Cards which will be shooting in Baltimore and DC and the surrounding areas beginning in April of 2012.
