No doubt about it, Montana's favorite show is "Yellowstone" - especially now that the show is filmed exclusively in Montana.  And being filmed in Montana means that there are chances for us Montanans to get on the show!  At least in the background!  But for many of us, being on Yellowstone, even for a moment, would be the next best thing to going back in time and appearing in "Lonesome Dove."

If you're interested in being an extra on Yellowstone, be sure to check this Facebook page regularly.  It will show the casting calls for extras, including what information they need you to send to them in order to be considered.  For instance, at the time of this writing, the next scheduled scene is to be filmed on the 19th and 20th of October.  There seem to be several scenes being shot on those work dates, or at least different kinds of casting calls. 

One call is for "men and women age 25 - 60" with "cool small town looks."  Those folks must have a car or truck.  Another is for animal rights protesters, including "NEW Career activists ages 45-70 Out of state types," as well as "NEW Millennial activists ages 20-late 30's" and "NEW College activists ages 18-22."

Of course, anyone applying to be an extra on the program will have to submit to a Covid test as well as be flexible regarding time and filming location, as even Kevin Costner can't schedule the weather.  

If you wish to try your hand, you will need to gather the following information: 

Phone number
Sizes men shirt size pant waist length shoe. women bustxwasitxhip size pant dress shoe size
Town you live in

Then, email that information, along with current photos, to: [email protected].  

The show asks that you "put in the subject line category you are submitting for ONLY submit if you have open availability and are OK with COVID testing.  Side note: FYI, the area codes that we will be calling you from are 323 & 310."

The Paramount Network program, now one of the most popular on TV, stars Kevin Costner as John Dutton as the owner of the largest ranch in the United States as he tries to protect his land and his family, often with a gun.  It also stars Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes and Cole Hauser.

Hey "Yellowstone!"  We love you!  Why not put out a casting call for magazine employees with dashing good looks?  We'll be there in a heartbeat.

Davis is my ex-husbands last name, never changed it,Martin was my adopted name,Calhoun was my oldest sisters dads name which he happily shared when I was born but my real dad sperm donor as I say lol mow he was a Gambill ...he gambled alright he left the best behind from the start but I'm sure he's in his own hell today ! My family calls me Barbie . I've been through every emotion and situation as a female possible and even told to die but I'm here with a good heart,morals honor and respect for others and this earth. Now don't get me wrong I've got a fire inside that burns so hot for the things I'm passionate about that will never die. Yellowstone is such an amazing show that I feel every moment I'm watching it and Beth oh how she's got fire inside her and those she loves. I admire the relationship she has with her father its something I've dreamt of my whole life. Rip heavens to Betsy now he'll make a woman blush with a smile and sound of his voice! Yes I have a crush but doesn't all the women lol. I love everything about Yellowstone the characters, setting,animals,the open sky and the closeness n' loyalty of them all. I've been a loner my whole life with the exception of my four pawd friends. Ann is my sidekick these days ..she's part lab and other breed but not sure. She sits on console of my jeep everywhere we go. We actually been to Oklahoma twice withing past three months and now reside in Shelbyville,TN . I've been through a lot and still keeping my head held high holding onto my hopes and dreams ! Yellowstone gives me a place to escape and forget about the hardships im facing today and I thank you from my heart n' soul. God bless and keep the fire burning darlin cause it keeps me going ! Xoxo B.Davis

Yellowstone has given me a tougher perspective on what needs to be done while working around the barn, saddling mules, and riding fence. Thank you to all those that work hard at bringing this show to production.
