Extras sought for ‘Mindhunter’ series filming in Pittsburgh

“Mindhunter,” a Netflix series being filmed in Pittsburgh, is looking for extras.

Nancy Mosser Casting will host an open call from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 16 at Blackbird Studios, 3583 Butler St., Lawrenceville.

People ages 18 and older who can play police officers, paramedics, firefighters, military personnel, SWAT officers, FBI agents and law enforcement recruits are especially needed. Most background extras will work one to three days.

Mosser Casting asks that you not attend if you already are on file with the company or are under 18 years of age. Those interested who cannot attend the open call and who aren’t already on file with Mosser Casting can create a free profile on the company’s database at

“Mindhunter” will begin filming next month and continue through December. The series will focus on two FBI agents who were pioneers in behavioral profiling during the 1970s.

The series is produced by Charlize Theron and David Fincher, and will star Pennsylvania native Jonathan Groff of “Glee” and Anna Torv, who starred in the TV series “Fringe.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
