LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A movie starring Viggo Mortensen and Frank Langella is looking for local actors to serve as extras when it films in Las Cruces this week.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reported Saturday that "Captain Fantastic" needs actors of various ethnicities for shooting.

The movie centers on a father who moves his six children deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest.

The production is looking for background actors between the ages of 30 and 60 with high end cars. There are also casting calls for a physically fit police officer and female and male golfers between their 30s and 50s

The New Mexico Film Office says the project will employ at least 75 local crew members, one New Mexico actor and 220 local background talent.
