PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Want to be a TV star…well sort of.

There is an open casting call for a new show on Showtime called “Rust” starring Jeff Daniels.

All ages and ethnicities are welcome on Sunday, March 1 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

The extras will play various roles including “small town locals, business and blue collar times, bar patrons, college football players, cops, wedding guests and other various role,” Movie Extras says on its website.

“Rust” is based on the novel “American Rust” about a chief of police in a Rust Belt town in Southwestern PA.

In a press release, Showtime describes “Rust” as, “RUST is a compelling family drama that will explore the tattered American dream through the eyes of complicated and compromised chief of police Del Harris (Daniels) in a Rust Belt town in southwest Pennsylvania. When the woman he truly loves sees her son accused of murder, Harris is forced to decide what he's willing to do to protect him.”

Daniels is also an Executive Producer on the project.
