Magnus Rex

For those who don't know, Batman: Dark Knight Rises has been filming in Pittsburgh for the last couple of weeks. I went to the giant mass casting for extras in June but never received a phone call to be in the movie (though I did get an audition for a local commercial that I didn't plan on. I went, but didn't get the part).
Friday night at 9:30 the phone call came. They needed lots of extras for a long day of shooting at Heinz Field for one of the big scenes in the movie. They needed a stadium full of Gotham City football fans. So, I got up really early and spent the day on the set.
I'm not going to go into a lot of detail here (I signed a non-disclosure agreement, and I'm sure you can find images and other details all over the web from other people if you really want to. I didn't take any pictures. We were asked not to, though some have already cropped up, and I didn't even take a camera with me (my cheap cell phone doesn't even have one built in).
But here are a couple of other images, just for posterity. These are wrinkled and sweaty from spending the day in my pocket.
