The Coen Brothers Casting Call for People Who Look Like John Goodman

Are you 6’1″, 275 to 300lbs, and possessing a “salt and pepper gotee/moustache?” Do people often stop you in the street to ask how you are going to spend shomer shabbos? Basically, do you bear a peculiar likeness to actor John Goodman?

If so, the Coen Brothers are looking for you. They will be shooting scenes from their upcoming movie Inside Llewyn Davies in Minnesota next week and are in need of a few doubles to stand in for their cast members.
