You loved him as Wolverine, and now you can appear alongside him as he portrays two-time presidential candidate Gary Hart. Hugh Jackman is coming to Savannah to film the Hart biopic “The Front Runner” this November, and the film is looking for extras.

The movie will detail the disgraced Colorado senator’s failed 1988 presidential bid, which was torpedoed by scandal, and Savannah will stand in for several locations, including Washington, D.C.; Miami; and the Bahamas.

According to a post on the Chad Darnell Casting Facebook page, the production is looking for people from Saturday, Nov. 2, to Saturday, Nov. 9.

Interested parties should contact Chad Darnell Casting by email at CDCExtrasCasting@gmail.com. Extras will be paid $68 for eight hours of work. There will be a $100 bump in pay if you have a period-accurate car that can be used in filming, model year 1988 or older.

As the film is a period piece, there are specific hair and wardrobe requirements, so fittings might be required before the shoot, according to the Facebook post.

Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons, Vera Farmiga, Kevin Pollak and Mike Judge also will star in the film, which is being directed by Jason Reitman, the director of “Juno,” “Thank You for Smoking” and “Up in the Air.”
