    GREEN CARD, DEAD POETS SOCIETY, WITNESS) is looking for tall-ship sailors
    to work as actors (speaking parts) and extras for a major motion picture
    based on Patrick O'Brian's sea-going adventure novel, THE FAR SIDE OF THE
    Those selected will work aboard the 'HMS' *Rose* (currently en route from
    New England to Baja, Mexico).
    A full-rigged replica of an 18th century British frigate, the *Rose* will
    portray the *Surprise* -- the movie's hero ship.
    Men and boys -- ages 10 to 40, all colors, shapes and sizes -- are needed
    in order to realistically capture the look of British, Irish, Scottish,
    Swedish, African and French sailors of 1806. All positions are paid and a
    living allowance will be provided.
    Filming is scheduled to run from June to mid-October of this year. Those
    who will be needed for the entire time can expect to be on scene for
    approximately 20 weeks. The production will stage out of Rosarito,
    Baja, Mexico, which is very close to San Diego.
    Notes Judy Bouley, who is casting the movie, "Rosarito is a beautiful
    seaside town with lots of sun, restaurants and beaches. It is a wonderful,
    warm place to call home for a few months. Shooting will
    take place at Baja, where such movies as TITANIC and PEARL HARBOR were
    Judy's past credits include CAST AWAY, PERFECT STORM, WHAT LIES BENEATH,
