The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the Amazon comedy about an Upper West Side housewife who becomes a comedian, is in the process of filming its fourth season. And the show put out a call for extras who fit a very specific type: “1960’s attractive girlfriend types.” They can be of “all ethnicities” between the ages of 18 and 40.

What the hell is a 1960’s girlfriend?

If you think you have what it takes, here’s the listing. The extras will be filming sometime after Jan. 20. The role pays $210 for 12 hours for nonunion talent, with a $60 stipend for a COVID test; “SAG-AFTRA rates apply for SAG-AFTRA members.”

      Ummmm… the 1960s attractive girlfriend types between 18 and 40 would be somewhere between 70 and 100 today. So what exactly are we looking for? (tongue-in-cheek)
