This is obviously geared towards Marines, they're asking for blokes with military experience and are asking for their bra and dress sizes.
#3 place people and students as extras. Glad to see that you've recognised the difference! Sounds like a sensible company - count me in (as long as you need someone to play Golem).

....could well be.....

On the other hand my student son signed to Universal Extras last year and was offered the same opportunity about 2 weeks ago - he can't commit to the full have I, from 2020 by sms .

The other bid I've seen is for guys 18-35 which includes me out.

So, all in all, I'd say this was a gen request.

If you are interested ( and can get leave at the time they want you which can be a problem) give Universal a shout - or phone 2020 Casting and ask for Chuck - mention the Army Rumour Service.

Other well-known extras firms who may be looking for names re this :
Mad Dog
Ray Knight
Casting Collective

Don Cabra
( Band of Brothers 2002......Green Zone 2008.....Robin Hood 2009 ........and probably the only ...ahem...'Background Artiste' who has NEVER been called for a Harry Potter or The Bill :) )

A whole world of opportunity for the RLC TA just gurgled down the drain.
