As we told you recently, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is filming in Miami next month (June 17-30), and an anonymous source tells us that - as we suspected - the show most likely is filming partly at the Fontainebleau.

But how would you like to be in the show? Yep, they’re looking for locals to be extras.

But not so fast! Looks like they want their extras to meet 1950s beauty standards. One standout requirement: “No surgically altered faces; no excessive tanning!” That rules out half the population.

Ok, try again: No acrylic nails, no facial piercings, no hair highlights. And that’s not all! No wool allergies either. Wool in June in Miami? Oy. Midge will be shvitzing.

Those picked must be available for fittings, some not here, and one in Miami right before filming.

Here are the guidelines given by production and posted by FrontRunnerCasting.com, where all interested parties need to create a profile.
