FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Fargo native who answered the call for extras in the World War II movie ''The Monuments Men'' wound up spending several days on the set after he was selected for a brief non-speaking role.
Connor Linnerooth is currently studying acting in Los Angeles. A year ago, he was attending school in Germany when the film advertised for 1,000 men to serve as extras. From there, he was selected to play an American courier who delivers a telegram to John Goodman.
Linnerooth is shown briefly in the film's trailer.
The 2012 Fargo Davies High School graduate earned about $160 for the part. He says it was a ''dream come true.''
The movie also features George Clooney, Bill Murray, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett. It opens Friday.
