Big Kid Pictures in association with Original Film and Fastball Productions is currently shooting the film "The Change-Up" and is seeking thousands of extras to fill Turner Field in Atlanta. Universal Pictures will distribute the film starring Ryan Reynolds, Jason Bateman, and Hollywood's newest highly sought after film star - Olivia Wilde. Though she may currently be best known for her ongoing role on "House," Olivia Wilde's big screen future is getting more prolific by the day, including her role in Tron: Legacy and upcoming starring and/or co-starring roles in Cowboys & Aliens, Butter, Now, and The Change-Up.

The extras for The Change-Up are needed for a baseball park scene and event is open to the public. The filmmakers are looking for people of all ages and ethnicities for the shoot. Feel free to bring your friends and families. Parking is free. Each registered extra will receive a free lunch, and a five dollar donation will be made on their behalf to the Atlanta Braves Foundation Charity. All attendees will be entered into a raffle for a pair of season tickets courtesy of the Atlanta Braves.

The body-switching comedy centers on best friends, Mitch Planko (Reynolds) is a single, hedonistic, unemployed man-child, while Dave Lockwood (Bateman) is a wealthy, successful lawyer with a beautiful wife (Wilde), three young kids, a fabulous house and a job that's sucked all the fun right out of him. Both dismissive and envious of each other's lives, Mitch and Dave magically trade bodies one drunken night, and discover that living in another guy's shoes can make you really appreciate your own life - or not.
