Here's an opportunity.

The War Memorial Stadium announced today that makers of the movie "Greater," about the forrmer Razorback lineman Brandon Burlsworth, are looking for 800 extras for filming of scenes of the movie June 3 at the stadium.

News release follows.

The War Memorial Stadium Commission is pleased to announce that parts of the film, “Greater” will be filmed at War Memorial Stadium. The film is about former Razorback football player, Brandon Burlsworth.

Brandon Burlsworth was an offensive lineman for the Arkansas Razorbacks football team from 1996-1998. He joined the team as a walk-on and eventually became an All-American. Burlsworth was the first Razorback football player to complete a master's degree before playing in his final game. Shortly after graduating, he was selected in the third round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Eleven days after being drafted, he was killed in a car accident near Alpena, Arkansas on his way back to is hometown of Harrison one night after a workout in Fayetteville.

In 2001, the book “Eyes of a Champion, the Brandon Burlsworth Story” by Jeff Kinley was released. A screenplay titled “Greater” has been written based on the book.
