Looking beautiful as ever, Evan Rachel Wood is seen on the set of The Ides of March at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on Tuesday (Mar. 15). Wood was seen wearing a badge identifying her as a staff member of the fictional Governor Mike Morris (played by George Clooney).
Angela Smith, an extra on Ides, had a pretty interesting write-up of her experience on set Tuesday that she posted on AnnArbor.com:
9:50 a.m. "The director comes on to stage and introduces himself to us, the audience of roughly 700 extras. Who is directing this film? Why, none other than George Clooney.
"Most of us had no idea if we would even see the superstar today, so cheers and excitement erupted throughout the theater. The captive audience has no problem following direction and enjoying Mr. Clooney’s humorous quips and light banter.
"We enjoyed every minute of his attention, and he ours. During the day he tells us about his dinner last night at Ann Arbor’s Pacific Rim, joked with us the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State, and had the crowds cheering for a University of Michigan film student named Yuri.
"There is a lot of waiting but the crew and cast are personable and friendly.
"We, the extras, are rearranged throughout the theater to shoot and reshoot a scene where George’s presidential candidate character is giving a speech about the importance of changing the world and the science of global warming. We are the enthralled supporters. We cheer and wave flags."
Being an extra sounds like fun!
