Chicago is busy any time of year for TV and movies but when summer hits, that's when things really start heating up.

It's no difference this year either. After news of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Chicago last weekend to film a movie, another flick is ready to go and they need your help.

Best part, no acting background required. Second best part? You get paid.

Showtime is filming The Chi, and they need extras, paid extras.

2017castingcalls says they "are looking for partying teens, neighborhood residents, service industry, business types and other featured roles."

The Chi is produced by Common, so who knows, while you're there you might rub shoulders with one of hip hop's heavyweights.
