Blog: WPXI.com intern auditions for 'Out of the Furnace' to star Christian Bale

BRADDOCK, Pa. - Hi everyone!  Intern Kim Raguza here.  I auditioned for "Out of the Furnace" on Saturday and wanted to tell you about my experience.

Open casting calls for extras got under way on Thursday in Braddock for the film to star Christian Bale.

Upon arrival at the Braddock Community Center, I was happy to see there weren’t hundreds of people waiting in line. The community center was going about its daily activities, and on Saturday, that meant grilling hot dogs outside. Inside the center was a registration table and a few hopeful candidates looking for a chance at a couple minutes of fame.

The casting directors were incredibly friendly. They told me I arrived at a good time because the rush of people came right when the doors opened. Across the span of two days, they have seen more than 600 people.

I was handed a casting form; It required my basic contact information and a physical description of myself, including height, weight, eye color and hair color. I also noted whether my car would be available for use.

After handing in my form, I got my photo taken. The casting call sheet asked you to bring your own photo if possible, but that was unnecessary. I happily smiled for a photo with my casting number -- hopefully lucky number 573.

Overall, the process only took me about ten minutes. It was a quick and easy audition for a huge opportunity to appear in a Hollywood film.

Had I not shown up to the casting call, I could have created an online profile with Mosser Casting.
