Almost anything, or anyone, can be found on Craigslist. The production team behind Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s new film, “The Nest”, held this statement true when they posted an ad seeking cast members for the movie while filming in East Meadow, Long Island.

Vanity Fair reported June 20 that the comic duo’s team posted an ad seeking professional manicurists/pedicurists to be a part of the movie.

The Craigslist’s ad which states, “Seeking REAL PROFESSIONAL MANICURISTS/PEDICURISTS to Portray Female Korean Nail Salon Workers. This is PAID work, shooting TOMORROW 6/20 in East Meadow, Long Island with transportation provided from Manhattan if needed.”

A representative with Universal confirmed with Vanity Fair that this ad indeed was legit. The post does not clarify if the manicurists will be interacting with Fey or Poehler in the movie, but still remains a fun gig.

‘The Nest”, a film about two sisters, played by Fey and Poehler, coming together when their parents’ home is up for sale. The sisters then collaborate for one last wild weekend. Co-stars in this widely-talked about film include Maya Rudolph, Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, and James Brolin. Fey and Jay Roach will produce the film which will be directed by "Pitch Perfect"’s Jason Moore.

The first photos from the film can be found on Huffpost. Barinholtz took to Instagram to share a photo of Fey, Poehler, and himself while filming. “The Nest” is scheduled to hit theaters December 18, 2015.
