It’s not every day that you get a chance to be an extra in a Steve Jobs biopic.

Over in Cupertino, thousands of people replied to a casting call over the weekend to be an extra in the Steve Jobs biopic with scenes being filmed at the Flint Center where Jobs unveiled the original Macintosh in 1984.

The line saw over 2,000 people show up in 80’s attire, with hundreds being turned away due to overwhelming response for the call.

“I thought I’d have no trouble getting onto the movie set at the Flint Center here since I was ‘confirmed’ as an extra and arrived at the designated time. Silly me. After years of covering the lines at Apple events and product launches, I should have known better,” said one attendee.

Potential extras began lining up at 5 AM despite instructions to arrive between 9 and 10 AM/

Attendees were encouraged to embrace an 80’s look with men designated to have “big long sideburns” while women were directed to wear blouses that are “boxy in cut with larger shoulders.” Attendees were directed to wear layers with a plethora of Cosby sweaters, plaid, flannel button-ups, side ponytails and leg warmers surfacing.

According to one of the line minders, the film will be shooting in the Bay Area for another six to seven weeks, giving aspiring extras additional opportunities to try for a spot in the film, which is planned for release in 2016.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
