SLIDELL, La. (AP) - As George Clooney and Sandra Bullock prepare this fall to shoot the political comedy "Our Brand Is Crisis," in New Orleans, producers are looking for locals interested in appearing as extras in the film.

A casting call is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday at the Slidell Municipal Auditorium.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1p7cU8g ) background actors are being sought to portray Bolivian men and women of all ages. Specifically, the production is looking for those who have a Hispanic and Native American look.

The Warner Bros.-backed "Our Brand Is Crisis" is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name and focuses on the exporting of American political strategies to South America. It's being produced by Clooney and producing partner Grant Heslov, who also produced 2012's Oscar-winning "Argo."
