A casting company is looking for rich Long Islanders -- or those who can look the part -- to frolic on the beach or swing a golf club for the filming of the USA Network show "Royal Pains" over the next few months.

Grant Wilfley Casting is searching for local residents to "play wealthy vacationers, upscale Hamptonites, young and attractive bar patrons, real housewife types, models, model-types, yachtsman, successful broker/financial types, surfers and beachgoers" for scenes filmed at local country clubs and beaches.

"We welcome the local well-heeled community to get involved as background players," said Grant Wilfley, Hampton resident and president of the casting company, which has been in business for 20 years.

Filming started in Southampton Village in April and will continue through October, said the show's casting agent Joanna Vanadia.

This is the third season for the show, which focuses on a young, handsome doctor, played by Mark Feuerstein, who gets fired from his city job and escapes to the Hamptons to become a physician-on-call, or "concierge doctor," for the rich and famous. He also runs a clinic for the working class, according to the Web site TV Tango.

Those who don't feel photogenic can instead lend the show their Lamborghini. The company needs fancy vehicles to use on the set. "We're always looking for upscale luxury cars," Vanadia said.

Even though the show focuses on Hamptons life, it does location shots throughout Nassau and Suffolk, including at Old Westbury Gardens and private Oyster Bay estates. Its filming studio is in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The producer, Andrew Lenchewski, is from Roslyn.


Want to be a 'Royal' extra?For those who want to be an extra in the show, you don't have to be a member of the acting unions, but you do have to wear your own clothes to the location. "Upscale," said Vanadia. "Hats, accessories."

Those interested should email recent, clear snapshots that best represent the role, with basic statistics such as height and weight and contract information to rps3@gwcnyc.com. Put "Long Island LOCAL" in the subject line, as well as any union affiliation, such as SAG or AFTRA.

For those who own luxury vehicles, note it in the subject line and give pertinent information about the car (color, make, year, model) as well as attach a photo.
