Byzantium, Neil Jordan's latest blockbuster, is short a crucial cast-member - to play Saoirse Ronan as a new-born baby.
The vampire movie, which is being filmed around Wexford and Dublin, stars Ronan, Sam Reilly and Gemma Arterton.
The baby will play the part of Saoirse Ronan when she was born. The baby, white and female, needs to be as close to new born as possible, as the scenes revolve around the baby being born.
The baby will be needed this week in Dublin city centre.
To apply for the role, just send an email to Support@MovieExtras.ie with the babies DOB and guardians contact details.
PS - No acting experience required :)

The Irish Premiere of War Horse took place at the Savoy Cinema, Dublin, last night.
Actors Gary Lydon & Liam Cunningham were among the stars joining broadcasters Gay Byrne and Joe Duffy, and jockey Ruby Walsh, on the red carpet.
Mark Linehan was there for ION TV - and he met them all.
War Horse star Liam Cunningham talked frankly to Mark about the film and the experience of working with legendary director Stephen Spielberg on the blockbuster movie.

It's been a busy week for Mark, who's one of the latest signings to Talentbase.
He has been battered and bruised... learning how to play ice hockey to celebrate new movie Goon...
Whew! Busy boy.

RTE's Nationwide is to get a touch of Xpose-like glamour, with the news that TalentBase star Jenny Dixon is soon to make a guest appearance on the programme, one of the national broadcaster's most-watched shows.
Dixon is to present a report on next week’s BT Young Scientist event at the RDS - a perfect fit for the Dublin biology teacher.
Dixon first hit the headlines when she was invited to party with Hugh Hefner and other celebrities at the Playboy mansion.
Dixon told the Evening Herald: “I was delighted to get a call from Nationwide to come on and talk about it, as I am involved heavily in both the BT Young Scientist & Technology event as well as Intel's SciFest competitions.
"I am anxious to have that side of me out there, it's more respectful and more serious. But, of course, science doesn't have to be dull, in fact it's far from it, it's why I love events like this and the students."

*** ACTORS WANTED... King's Fool Productions are auditioning for their first full production, Sitting up For Michael, a new play that will be touring Northern Ireland in May and June 2012.
The play is set in a wake in rural county Tyrone in January 2011. Auditions will take place in Belfast in January and rehearsals will start in April. The fee is £1200.
KFP are casting for the following roles:
BRIAN - Late 40s. The grumpy son of the deceased.
FRIEDA - Late 40s. Brian's sister. Her long absences, while she's been appearing on Good Morning Ulster mean she's a little out of touch with the rural scene.
DORIS - Nurse, mid 50s. Next door neighbour to the deceased, who wants to pay her respects by sitting up for him.
JOE - Early 20s. Charming & cheeky.
CARLA - Early 20s. She just met Joe on the bus from Queens, and now she's at a wake of someone she doesn't even know. Her demure facade is a cover for something more sinister.
BILLY - 50s, a preaching Free Presbyterian, but also the local village boozer.
