In Episode 22 of the N2Backpacking podcast series, I speak with Ken aka “The Weasel” about our experience as extras in the soon to be released movie Walk In The Woods. It is based on the best-selling 1998 book by Bill Bryson, and stars Robert Redford and Nick Nolte – both who were on set for our scene in the movie which was filmed at Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta, Georgia.
Ken and I record the podcast 2 years to the day of an interview we did on the Chattooga River Trail (Episode #5). We talk about what it takes to get the casting call, discuss life on the set, review some scenes from the movie, and talk about the impact this Hollywood production may have on the Appalachian Trail and other long distance hiking trails in the future.
Want a shot at your 15 seconds of fame? Hurry, because they are wrapping up production of Walk In The Woods in June. But you can follow this link to CL Casting to see the Atlanta casting calls that remain.
