Neil Patrick Harris movie seeks nude people


The Best and the Brightest, the Philly-shot comedy that has Neil Patrick Harris and Bonnie Somerville playing parents from Delaware trying to get their kid into a ritzy Manhattan school, is looking for actors.

The "type"? Talent that's "comfortable with nudity for background work."

Extras will be paid at the Screen Actors Guild's Special Ability Background Actors rate, which, from figures I could find, is $140 a day.
