'The Bear' Is Looking for Extras to Appear in Season 3

Want to appear on-screen with Carmy, Sydney, and the crew? Here's how you can apply to be an extra in season three of 'The Bear.' πŸ‘©β€πŸ³

by Chicago Bucket List


It hasn't even been two years since Hulu's The Bear first premiered, but it's already taken the world by storm with its chaotic kitchen scenes and dynamic relationships set against the backdrop of buzzy Chicago. After picking up over half a dozen Emmys and Golden Globes this awards season, we can only imagine what season three has in store, and we can't wait to find out.

Chicagoans, however, have the unique opportunity to get an up-close look at the newest season. The production team is on the hunt for extras to appear in a scene expected to be filmed in mid-March. If you're lucky enough to land a spot, you'll receive over $200 for your timeβ€”plus bragging rights forever.

The casting crew is looking for males between the ages of 22 and 65 who are 5'10" or taller. To be considered, you need to have a POP Profile. If you don't have one, you can set one up here and follow the instructions for sending the submission email. If you do have one, you can simply send a submission email to [email protected] with "AIRPLANE PERSONNEL" in the subject line.

Your email should include the following information:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • A photo of your current look for quick reference
  • Your measurements (there's a fitting involved)
  • A candid photo and a full body photo (make sure they're taken in decent lighting)
  • How you will get to set (Uber, public transportation, etc.)
  • Your general availability (flexible, mornings, evenings, etc.)
  • Confirmation of a valid state ID or passport
  • Two dates that you're available for a fitting (beginning the first week of March)
  • Confirmation that you can film on March 12

If you're selected, you'll receive an official booking email. From there, you'll be on your way to saying "Yes, Chef" by March. Good luck!
