Upstate New York continues to be a hotbed of activity for television and movie production. The Amazon Prime series "Modern Love" was filmed all over Schenectady and Albany last fall. This summer HBO's "The Gilded Age" is filming in Troy, "The White House Plumbers" was filming in the Hudson Valley and Albany, Owen Wilson was spotted in Saratoga Springs lately filming "Paint", Mindy Kaling's "The Sex Lives of College Girls" was filming at Vassar College and there are probably a few I'm forgetting. That's a ton of work being done by the film and TV industry right here.

Now there's another project that is looking for actors, actresses, and extras in Upstate New York. It's an unnamed project called the "Untitled Rust Best Film" and it's filming this fall and winter in several locations. After doing some digging, it looks like it's a movie that will star Adrien Brody, Jesse Eisenberg, and Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough. On IMDB the film is titled "Manodrome".

Acording to the casting website, Casting Double here's the synopsis of the movie. "It’s Christmas time and a retrenched factory worker is feeling the burn. His girlfriend has a baby on the way, but with no fixed income and the ghosts of his past come back to haunt him, his grip on reality slips and he develops a dangerous obsession with an immigrant bodybuilder at his local gym."

ith the number of film productions going on in the area you could probably make a pretty good living just being an extra in films and TV shows.

I've been an extra a few times in my life and I've had a great time. Once I was in the 90s skater movie "Airborne" with Jack Black and Seth Green and I got to hang out with them for a couple of days.
