Pain and Gain Casting Call This Weekend: Your Chance to Get Funky With Marky Mark

If you've always dreamed of making your big-screen debut as a Miami gym rat, this weekend's your chance.

The casting directors of Pain and Gain -- which, in case you've missed our extensive coverage thus far, is Michael Bay's movie shot in Miami based on a New Times story of bodybuilding, kidnapping, and extortion -- are holding a casting call for extras on Saturday. And you're invited.

According to the announcement from Paramount Pictures, the film's casting agents are looking for just about anyone -- "all types, looks, ethnicities" -- as long as they're age 18 or older. The company's also seeking cars from 1994 or earlier. (We knew we should've held onto that Nissan Sentra from college, dammit.)

Applicants should come to the audition with two forms of ID -- either a drivers license or passport, and social security card. The announcement notes that "Hairstyles, clothing, and make-up from that era would be helpful and appreciated." If you still have a Hypercolor t-shirt, we're pretty sure you're a shoo-in.

The Pain and Gain casting call takes place Saturday, March 31, at the Harvey Center Building, 10200 NW 25th Street, Doral, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Email paininmiami@gmail.com for more information.
