Johnny Depp at the ICC

For those of you in Milwaukee, here's your chance to be in a movie with the Pirate himself. If I still lived in town, I would SO go check it out!

My friend Lynn found this on Channel 3000 Madison's website:


MILWAUKEE -- Johnny Depp fans around Wisconsin will get a chance to be in a movie with the movie star.

The Hollywood heartthrob's new movie "Public Enemies" is being shot in Wisconsin beginning in the middle of March.

They need extras for the movie.

Producers will hold auditions Friday night from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee.

Men should be no taller than 6-foot-1 and wear a dark suit and overcoat.

Women should be no taller than 5 feet 8 and wear a dark dress and overcoat.

People should also bring a recent color picture of themselves.

Have a great weekend everybody!

My friend and I were going to go - she called last minute. I'm glad I didn't short our original plans and go. Well over 3,000 people showed up and had to stand outside for hours - just to have their photo taken for a maybe shot at making $9.00's an hour as an extra.

When my ex-girlfriend studied abroad(sp?) in Mexico they were filming "Once Upon a Time in Mexico." She got pictures with Antonio Banderas..Enrique Iglesias and director Robert Rodriguez. Johnny Depp was the only one she didn't see. I would have went to this at the ICC but i just read the post today.

While growing up, the movie Major League was filmed here in Milwaukee. At the end of my street, a wedding scene was filmed at the local church - but never made the movie.

Lots of Milwaukee scenes here and good memories!
