‘The Bikeriders’ filmmakers are looking for extras in Cincinnati


Austin Butler, Tom Hardy and Jodie Comer are coming to Greater Cincinnati for a new movie — and you can join them.

Casting directors for “The Bikeriders,” a movie starring the three actors which is shooting in Cincinnati this fall, are looking for extras.

The Jeff Nichols-directed film follows a 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club and is inspired by Danny Lyon’s 1967 book of photographs of the same name. It also stars Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook and Damon Herriman.

D. Lynn Meyers, a Cincinnati-based casting director with the Casting Society of America, began sharing paid opportunities for featured film extras on her Facebook page last month. More recently, Meyers called men in their 20s and 40s who have motorcycle licenses and can ride a motorcycle in the film.

Meyers said the filmmakers were also looking for vintage motorcycles, trucks and cars from the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

Those interested can send a non-professional photo, such as a selfie, and their contact details to [email protected] All cast and featured extras must be vaccinated against COVID-19, Meyers’ posts read.

According to her IMDb page, Meyers was part of the casting team for “Hillbilly Elegy,” which was filmed and partially filmed in Middletown, among other films. She is also the Artistic Director Producer of Ensemble Theater Cincinnati.

Filming for “The Bikeriders” begins in Cincinnati in October.
