George Clooney is giving fans the chance to appear alongside him in his latest movie, The Ides Of March – producers are holding an open casting for extras.
The Ocean’s Eleven star is stepping behind the camera to direct the political drama, and will also take the onscreen role of Governor Mike Morris.

He wants to share the experience with his loyal following by offering fans bit-parts in the film, but there’s set to be disappointment for many movie hopefuls – 16,000 budding actors have already applied for a minor role.

The open casting session takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio on Saturday. Filming is due to begin in the city next month.
