Background Actor Upgraded to A Speaking Role on ‘Mr. Mercedes’ Season 2


Another background extra was upgraded to a speaking role on the set of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes.

Tona B. Dahlquist Casting, the extras casting company behind AT&T’s Mr. Mercedes Season 2, revealed on Facebook that a background actor was upgraded to a speaking role this week.

“Mr. Mercedes -Congratulations to Victor on his upgrade from Extra to Speaking Role on Wednesday! We are proud of you!,” Tona B. Dahlquist Casting said on Facebook.

Mr. Mercedes season 2 is now filming in Charleston, South Carolina. Mr. Mercedes, based on Stephen King’s 2014 book of the same name, follows a demented killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

This is not the first time a background actor as upgraded to a speaking role. Recently, on the set of Kevin Hart’s new movie Night School, a background actor was also upgraded to a principal speaking role. Tyler Perry also has a history of upgrading background extras to speaking roles.
