Teens and young adults affected by cancer will be extras in TFIOS

We take no credit for the picture

From the Pittsburgh Film Office: The feature film, The Fault in Our Stars, that is shooting in Pittsburgh this fall, is looking for teens and young adults 13-23 years-old, who have been affected by cancer, to appear as extras in the film.

 The film is based on The New York Times Bestseller of the same name written by John Green.  The Fault in Our Stars is the story of teenagers who meet at a Cancer Kid Support Group.

 The production would like to give teens and young adults, who have been or are currently cancer patients, the opportunity to appear in the movie. The roles are non-speaking and there is no experience necessary. 

Those cast for these roles will be needed for approximately two to five days of filming this September.  All roles are paid positions. If interested, please email Nancy Mosser Casting at:

Include a recent snapshot of yourself and a brief description of your experience with cancer.  Please include your age, your parent's name (for those under 18 years) and a phone number.

This is the most amazing news. We could not be happier to see them honor everyone affected by this disease in this way. We bow down to you, Josh Boone etc.
