Avengers Extra - Cleveland

The Avengers Assembled in Cleveland during the Summer of 2011. Project: Group Hug 

I had the opportunity be an extra in Marvel's The Avengers movie as it was filmed in Cleveland in August 2011.

I may not even make the movie but hanging out with Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America was great....I mean I was in 11 different scenes, some with 100 of my new Avengers Extra friends.

Filming was in downtown Cleveland, the weather was great and the whole experience was outstanding....especially the food.

 I am not an actor so here is how it happened:

The Cleveland Film Commission posted that the Avengers needed a few hundred extras for the movie. The Casting Call was for "business people" so they wanted us to put on a suit and assemble at the Holiday Inn in Independence, Ohio.

About 6,000 people showed up. I waited in line for 2 hours and was asked to complete a form with some basic information including if I had any special talents. I lost my super powers in college so I really had nothing to offer other then the ability to run around and act scared.

About 2 weeks later I got the "Call".........hello this is Marvel casting calling.....can you come to wardrobe tomorrow!!!       So I did.
