A casting call for paid background extras for a Netflix feature film will be held 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 25, at Mesilla Town Hall, 2231 Avenida de Mesilla in Mesilla, said Las Cruces Film Liaison Johnathon Sepp in a news release. Casting agents are also looking for vehicles.

“The feature film production is looking for paid background extras to populate a scene in a Netflix movie, as locals of an authentic Mexican town,” the news release said. All adult ages and genders are welcome to audition, along with children age 6 to 12 years old.
