We are also looking for around 5 extras as well. For the second, we need a crazy, time-traveling guy, a dinosaur, two cowboys, and someone to act as president Lincoln and Neil Armstrong. Around 5 extras are also needed. Casting calls will be held in room 233 right after school Thursday January 10th and Friday the 11th.
