Katie Holmes, Queen Latifah: Meet your 'Mad Money' ... costars?

In a bizarrely appropriate move to shake more movie extras out of the rafters, "Mad Money" casting directors will be hosting an extras casting call at the Mudbugs game on Saturday.

Hmm, I didn't know Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes and Diane Keaton liked hockey.

Here are just a few of the Mudbug fans who might apply to share some screen time with TomKat's better half. (Sorry, Tom. We're still friends.)

If they cast Mudbugs captain Dan Wildfong, it will confirm my suspicions: "Mad Money" is a slasher film. (Thank you, thank you, ladies and gentleman. I just flew in from Albuquerque and, boy, are my arms tired.)

FOR: "Mad Money." Begins shooting April 19 (tentative).
WHEN: 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 10. It will take place during the Mudbug's game against the Okla. City Blazers (7:05 p.m. faceoff).
WHERE: CenturyTel Center, Bossier City.
DETAILS: to apply in person during the game, you must have a ticket to the game. BAM Casting will set up a table in CTC's concourse.
WHAT TO BRING: a headshot. If you don't have one, casting director will snap one.
SEEKING: persons looking like casino workers, bank tellers, airline workers, forklift drivers, mafia-style criminals, FBI agents, police and blues band members. They also need persons to work as stand-ins for the stars. (Clawed doesn't look anything like Katie Holmes, so forget it.)
COST TO APPLY: free, or a pound of crawfish.
CAN'T MAKE THE GAME?: call BAM Casting at (318) 525-1468 or email the office at Its website,, isn't live yet, but they're working on it.
