Think you’ve got what it takes to wander around in the background while Congressmembers plot and scheme? Then ready yourself for the next casting call for the Netflix original series House of Cards:  Saturday, May 18 from 9 AM to 2 PM at the Bel Air Reckord Armory.

Season one of the well-received show (which stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright) employed 2,200 locals and brought $140 million to Maryland, according to the Baltimore Sun. In the first season, Bel Air stood in for Spacey’s character’s hometown of Gaffney, South Carolina. Other notable Baltimore cameos included the Peabody standing in for a fictional, swanky D.C. hotel; Preston Street in Mount Vernon serving as Zoe’s sketchy neighborhood; and Johns Hopkins playing the fictional Sentinel Military Academy. (See a complete list of locations here.)

According to someone who should know — Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill — the show is “highly entertaining fiction but not very realistic.” What, you mean there’s not really all that much sex, murder, and blackmail going on in D.C. all the time?
