There will soon be more stars among us (or maybe it's you): Grimm will start filming season four in Portland soon and the show is looking for extras.

The casting notice says that anyone can, of course, try out, but you'll have a better shot if you're a) a clean-cut man or woman between the ages of 30 and 60, b) African-American, Hispanic, Asian or Middle Eastern or c) a boxer.

It's okay if you skipped that improv class in college, because no prior experience is required. For those in it for the money, you'll work eight hours a day, making minimum wage plus any overtime.

If you haven't caught up with the modern fantasy television show, the story line follows a homicide investigator who learns he is descended from a line of Grimms who keep harmony between humans and the mythological creatures of the world called Wesen. The hero of the series battles against dangerous creatures, with help from his Wesen sidekick and his partner.

Other shows filming in Oregon through the rest of the year include Runestone, the Librarians and Portlandia, which is also on the lookout for extras.

Grimm has been nominated for a number of awards since first airing in 2011, including an Emmy and a People's Choice Award. The show won a Hollywood Post Alliance award in 2012 for Outstanding Sound.
