"The Righteous Gemstones," a new HBO series starring Danny McBride, John Goodman and Adam Devine, is being filmed in Charleston, and a local casting company is looking for extras.

McBride stars in the comedy show, which features a greedy televangelist family, and serves as writer, director and executive producer. The pilot was filmed in Charleston last August, and the series will continue to use its Lowcountry locale. 

The Tona B. Dahlquist Casting company, which also sought out actors and extras for "Halloween," lists the specifics for extras and potential stand-ins on a Facebook post. Those interested must submit their name, phone number, age, location, height, weight and two recent photos (a body and head shot taken within the last six weeks) attached to an email. 

Photo requirements also include: no hats, sunglasses or other people included, no filters or photo editing and updated facial hair for males.

In addition, applicants should note their clothing sizes, including shoe size, pant size, jacket size, button-up-shirt neck and sleeve sizes and casual shirt sizes for males and chest, waist and hip measurements for women, along with dress, pants, shirt, skirt and shoe size. 

Tattoo and piercing descriptions, along with the color, make, model and year of your vehicle (with a preferable photo) also should be included. 

Professional experience in the following fields should also be noted: police officer, detective, fireman, military, EMT, physician, nurse, professional photographer, singer, dancer, musician, bartender, waitress. 

Filming will start in March, and submissions can be sent to TRGextras@gmail.com, with your race, gender, age and city and state in the subject line.
