Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle’s troubled Steve Jobs movie has had difficulty holding onto its cast members, but there’s a way you can help change that: by putting yourself forward for a role.

Beau Bonneau Casting is looking for San Francisco-based extras to appear in the movie when it starts shooting in late January 2015.

Here’s everything you’ll need to do to stand a chance at making the movie, just in case you ever wanted to be in the audience for one of Apple’s product launches (and, frankly, who wouldn’t?).

According to Variety:

“Production’s strongest need is for Men 18-40s with flexible schedules and comb-able length hair and/or men willing to grow their hair, facial hair, sideburns to match 80s-90s time periods,” the [casting call] notice said. “Women should have natural hair colors, no chunky highlights or ultra modern styles. Overall for men and women, curls, waves and volume are a plus. Production will provide haircuts as needed.”

After a turbulent few months in which it switched movie studios, directors and lead actors, the Jobs movie (based on the best-selling 2011 Walter Isaacson biography) finally appears to be back on track. Michael Fassbender is set to play the late Apple CEO, with Inherent Vice actress Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak.

The movie is set to take place as three 30-minute scenes, each depicting the backstage goings-on at an Apple product announcement at different stages in Jobs’ career.

Personally, I can’t wait to see it — and if you’re in the Bay Area and have a few days to lend to the production, you might get to see part of it a whole lot sooner than the rest of us!
