The Informant Starring Matt Damon Needs Background Extras

 

Warner Bros. needs background extras for the upcoming filming The Informant starring Matt Damon and directed by Stephen Soderbergh. The production will shot just two days on Oahu sometime the week of June 23. Filming will be at The Makaka Resort. Extras can be SAG members or not. What’s needed are golfers with theirr own golf clubs, Asian business men and golfers, FBI agents, resort guests and european execs. Submit photos, sizes and contact numbers to TheInformantCasting@gmail.com …Compensation is $80 for 10 hours or the SAG rate. Hawaii casting is by Los Angeles-based Rich King Casting which also did local casting onForgetting Sarah Marshall…

Pre production begins tomorrow for set construction and other advance work. Hawaii is the last location for the big budget film. The production for continuity sakes has brought the majority of its crew here though about 25 local crew will be hired.

The film is based on Kurt Eichenwald’s 2000 book, The Informant, the story of Mark Whitacre (Damon), a rising star at Decatur’s Archer Daniels Midland in the early 1990s who wound up blowing the whistle on the company’s price fixing tactics. As the highest-ranked executive to ever turn whistleblower, Whitacre secretly gathered hundreds of hours of video and audio over several years to present to the FBI. But Whitacre’s good deed dovetails with his own major infractions and struggle with bipolar disorder…

The Makaha Resort was selected because that is where in the 1970s Whitacre held several secret meetings that were recorded with corrupt MIdland officials…

Mariah Carey had a busy day. After keeping her production crew waiting some four hours Sunday she finally arrived in Portlock from the Paul MItchell Estate in Lanikai to shoot a portion of her music video  at the cliffside home of Rob Burns who founded the surf company Local Motion. Problem is Carey had a personal trailer waiting for her at the elementary school in Koko Head where she was to have her hair, makeup and costuming done. The diva’s makeup and costumes had to be driven to the cliffside location where she was made up. Filming was completed around sunset and Carey was whisked back to Lanikai where she partied with friends until around 11 p.m. She then was driven to Hawaiian Adventures Water Park for more filming. That shoot lasted to 5 a.m. Today’s filming is also at night but at Sea Life Park. If the video is not completed today Carey and accompany will return to SLP tomorrow. Husband  Nick Cannon, who arrived Saturday evening, stopped by Tiffany’s in Waikiki in a limousine and with a bodyguard on his way to Lanikai to buy his bride some jewelry.

For her music video Carey is singing “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” from the album  CD. Notable security company Private Security owned by Charlie Long has had three guards protecting Carey and company during the shoot. Private Security also is doing security for the Into the Blue 2 DVD film and Warner Bros. feature The Informant starring Matt Damon…The couple have settled into the Kahala Resort for a few days…
