What you missed in Columbus for Nov. 11
The Ohio State Buckeyes dominant season continued with a 73-14 shellacking of Maryland over the weekend. Don't feel too bad for the Terrapins, though, which stomped the overmatched Howard Bisons 79-0 in its season opener. What goes around comes around, I guess. OSU recorded the win without its best player, defensive end Chase Young, who is under NCAA investigation for accepting a loan from a family friend. A suspension of multiple games is likely for Young.
Have you ever wanted to make $9 an hour standing around in a prison in order to (potentially) spot a brief flash of yourself in a crowd on the big screen? Well, you might be in luck! Recently, a casting call went out looking for extras for "Cherry," the latest movie from from the Russo Brothers ("Avengers: Endgame"), which is scheduled to film at the Marion Correctional Facility on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 14 and 15. A press release notes that filmmakers will cast "over 100" age 21 and over male extras, and star Tom Holland, aka the best Spider-Man, will be on hand for the shoot. Those interested are required to email photos of themselves and their car to email@example.com.
