Does anyone watch The Killing?

It looks like I'm going to be an extra with them tomorrow Thursday. I have absolutely no idea what the show is. Based on the title, I am hoping to be a bloody corpse. Apparently they asked for me specifically, which is flattering...unless they are going to cast me as "ugly extra #2."

Thanks! I'll be sure to skim my paperwork tomorrow to make sure I can talk about it. ;)

Haha, I think so too! I'm not sure if I'll actually be one though - I'll find out tomorrow! I might just be someone sitting on a bench in the background. :)

It's an ongoing murder mystery, in season 1 this teenage girl is murdered and this lady detective and her male partner spend the whole season looking for the killer. The female lead detective was supposed to be moving and getting married but then that case kept her in town; her partner I think was supposed to take her job over but then she never left. Anyway, I can't recall exactly but there was some weird surprise twist I think at the end of the season. It was a pretty good show, if rather grim; gritty and damp and dreary setting/atmosphere and of course studies of all these various characters as possible suspects and watching that murdered girl's family sort of fall apart, etc. Cool that you were asked for specifically to work on set!

Interesting.... thanks for the info! It's always nice to know a little context for the lines that I overhear. :)

I've never heard of it, but it's quite cool that they asked for you. Good luck on being a bloody corpse, or whatever they want you for!

Thanks! I'm hoping for bloody corpse...especially since it would mean laying down all day. ;)

XD Haha, that would be better than standing in the background all day as some sort of extra, wouldn't it?

LOL That's what I am! :P

But yes, exactly, it would be very good. Though, I happen to think that I'm very talented at standing in the background all day. ;)

Haha, true. But it's a change of pace. You might be a dead, bloody extra instead of just an extra standing in the background.

I'm sure you could win awards for standing in the background. CX

I totally would. I'm very good at the whole "don't look at the camera! Look anywhere but the camera!" thing... ;)

That is so cool that they asked for you specifically! You're famous! XD

Haha, yeah, I'm really not - it probably just means that they need a brunette or something. Still, it's cool - hopefully it's a nice set with cool people.

Very noir character driven murder mystery. The tagline was "Who killed Rosie Larsen?"Based on a v. successful Dutch series that was a big hit in the UK. It was a darling of the critics when it started last year, and then they turned on it like rabid dogs when in the finale there was (shock horror) a twsit, plus we didn't actually find out who killed Rosie. I loved it.

BTW please remember us little people when you're famous. (how exciting to be asked for!)

Hahaha, I will never forget the little people...because I will never be famous. ;) But it is very intriguing to me that I was asked for.

I thought everyone loved twists? Isn't that what made M. Night famous, before he tapped out his writing mojo? :P

I'll let you know what scene/episode I'm in, if I can find out - then you can keep an eye out for me if you watch it!

Sounds interesting and fun!

I don't know what it's about, but I've heard people at work talking about it in the break room. They like the twists and turns in the murder investigations. I do know it's on AMC instead of one of the regular network stations. I think it's their only drama series...mostly they replay old movies.

Good luck tomorrow!

Thanks! We don't get AMC up here in Canadaland (I don't think), so I don't even know if I'll be able to watch it when it airs. I guess there are always downloads though.
