Catching a glimpse of Chalamet would be cool enough on its own, but what's even cooler is that the filmmakers are looking for extras in Cape May, New Jersey to be in the movie!

The movie will focus on a point in music history when Bob Dylan played an electric guitar at a folk festival in 1965, which was shocking and controversial at the time. The event took place in Newport, but Cape May will be the location to depict that day in history.

'A Complete Unknown' is looking for extras!

Calling all locals! Now you can be in the audience of that iconic festival in 1965.

"Grant Wilfley Casting is seeking locals to work as background aka extras in a feature film shooting in Cape May, NJ May 12-16, 2024. Scenes take place in 1965 at a concert," the casting call reads.

In order to be considered, there are a few requirements:

  • Ok to work interior and exterior
  • Have no wool allergies
  • Ok with period appropriate haircuts and facial hair

If you're cast, you'll have to attend a costume fitting in Jersey City before shooting. Transportation from Cape May to Jersey City and then back again will be provided. So cool!

During filming transportation to or from Cape May will NOT be provided. Hotel accommodations won't be provided either.
