Ever longed for your moment on the silver (okay, small) screen? The new $100 million Netflix TV show House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright and executive produced by director David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), is looking for extras to play members of Congress, Capitol Hill staffers, lobbyists, and interns.

Men and women of all ethnicities and between the ages of 21 and 70 can attend an open casting this Sunday, May 20, between 4 and 8 PM at 901 Restaurant & Bar in Penn Quarter. You should bring a nonprofessional snapshot, a headshot, and a full-body photo. And don’t forget us when you’re famous.
