Hello all. Thanks for joining us. In case you have not worked with us before, here's how it goes...

Below you will find the listing for the character roles and the kinds of things that we would like you to bring for those. Please bring as many choices as possible, it will help us make you look better.

Some of you may be working in more than one category, so please read and comply with all the information that applies to you.

Here we go....

SOCIAL WORKERS should bring options that include khakis, slacks, skirts, nice jeans, casual button front shirts and blouses, both long and short sleeves. Light weight sweaters and jackets, cardigans, etc. Please no logos.

SHELTER MEN should bring your gardening/yard clothes, work clothes, etc. If you have shirts and pants with stains on them, those are the ones. This look is really a layered look. Stained pants, a thermal or long sleeve tee with holes and a stained or faded flannel shirt with old dirty tennis shoes or work boots. Also knit caps and old hooded sweatshirts. Please no logos that we can't eliminate. This is a typical look and there can certainly be variety and should be. They are looking for some folks to be very "typical" and for others to just look a bit down on their luck. So bring some of each. Bring all your worst clothes and shoes but also bring some things that just might look a bit out of date or ill fitting. The colors for all this should be in browns and greys, greens, black, navy, tans. Nothing too colorful. Even if it's dirty a bright color can look too happy. This is a fun one, so bring all the clothes that your wife has been nagging you to throw away! :-)

CORONERS AND FBI FORENSICS should bring options that include dark slacks and light colored button front shirts and dark ties. Also bring some more casual clothing like khakis and polo shirts and casual long sleeve button front shirts. Don't forget the shoes and belts that will work with these looks.

PROTESTERS/MALE MUSLIMS should bring any traditional Muslim/cultural clothing that you may have. This mosque is a multi-cultural mosque so there will be several cultures that would be there. Also bring choices to include more "western" clothing such as slacks, khakis, jeans, polo shirts, long and short sleeve button front shirts, light weight jackets and sweaters. Please keep the colors muted and darker, such as brown, tan, greens, navy, black. Texture and pattern are good, just nothing too busy or too large or bold.

DC COPS will be given a uniform by the costume department. Please bring a white, crew neck tee shirt and a pair of black socks.

FBI TACTICAL will be given uniforms by the costume department. Please bring a black pair of socks.

It is going to be a busy day, but it should be fun. Thanks in advance for bring all the good stuff. We look forward to meeting you and we'll see you on the set!!
