Or at least play one? Then keep an eye on the casting calls for George Lucas's next film, Red Tails, currently shooting in San Francisco.
From a recent announcement:
Beau Bonneau Casting in San Francisco is currently working on a George Lucas Film "Red Tails" starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrance Howard. This is a story about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American Combat Squadron in WWII in the 1940's.
Seeking Non-union African American males for extra work to portray pilots and ground crew. Age Range: 18-35. Height requirement: 5'7"- 6'1". Waist requirement: 31-34. Must be fit and in shape. Also must have hair on head. Because bald heads were not the trend in the 1940's, we are not looking for bald heads.
