A casting company is looking for local movie extras for a film about Bob Dylan.

Scenes for the film are going to be shot in Cape May. Timothée Chalamet, who recently starred in the blockbuster sequel "Dune: Part Two " plays the lead role in the biopic.

Local Extras Needed for Cape May Scenes in Timothée Chalamet Movie

A Complete Unknown, starring the Oscar-nominated Timothée Chalamet as legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, is scheduled to shoot in Cape May from May 12-16.

Grant Wilfley Casting is looking for paid local extras for those scenes.

"A Complete Unknown," Tells the Story of Bob Dylan's Early Life & Music

Cape May is being used as a stand-in for Newport, Rhode Island, in scenes depicting the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, where Dylan famously played an electric guitar onstage, angering some fans over his switch from acoustic folk to electrically amplified instruments.

The Newport Folk Festival was also the first time he performed his song “Like a Rolling Stone” live, a song from which the upcoming biopic gets its title.

It was first announced in 2020 that director James Mangold planned to write and direct a biopic about Bob Dylan, with Timothée Chalamet cast as Dylan. That movie is finally being made, with some local scenes being shot.

Mangold also directed Walk the Line, the film about the young life of singer-songwriter Johnny Cash.

The cast includes Elle Fanning, Edward Norton, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Nick Offerman.
