Mr. Mercedes

Mr. Mercedes is filming a second season in Charleston. 

New cast members include Jack Huston ("Ben-Hur," "American Hustle," "Kill Your Darlings") and Maximiliano Hernandez ("Captain America," "The Avengers," "Thor") 

The first season of the show followed a demented killer played by Harry Treadaway who taunts a retired police detective played by Brendan Gleeson with a series of letters and emails. A private crusade thus begins to bring the killer to justice before he can strike again. 

The series, which will be aired on DIRECTV, U-verse TV and the AT&T AUDIENCE network, is in need of people all ages and all ethnicities to be paid extras. For more specifics on how to submit and what to include in your submission, visit or send an inquiry email to
