The Disney movie "Secretariat," will begin filming in Lafayette on October 12 and will continue through the end of November. The movie will star Diane Lane, John Malkovich and Nelsan Ellis, and will chronicle the life story of Penny Chenery, owner of the racehorse that won the Triple Crown in 1973.

Casting agents are looking for people to serve as background extras and two young girls to play a young Chenery - who will be portrayed by Lane. The girls, ages 6 and 13, must have light to
medium blonde hair and the ability to take instruction from directors. Headshots and resumes are being accepted today at secretariatextras@yahoo.com.
