Does your toddler bear a striking resemblance to a Kennedy?

Uncanny. OK, now ask if they want to be cast in a film version of Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly’s book, “Killing Kennedy.”

The National Geographic, made-for-television production is filming in Richmond beginning next week. And as with “Lincoln,” they’re looking for extras. It stars Rob Lowe.

Charlottesville-based Erica Arvold Casting is looking for three-year-old children to stand in for Kennedy's daughter, Caroline, and son, John Jr. They're also looking for infants of five and 18 months to stand in for John Jr. There are details and pictures on the agency's website.

Richmond BizSense, which has more details about the film, reports the agency also looking for extras of “all shapes and sizes, including many Caucasian males as well as Hispanic males and females."

Non-union extras will be paid $75 a day, BizSense reports.
