According to LadBible, who reported that casting agents are currently seeing in mass people with "wonderful noses" or "character faces". The requirements also detail people should join if they are over six feet tall or under five feet. The report says that two casting agencies are currently taking in requests for people of any background and ethnicity.

The LadBible also says that the casting agencies are looking for "long lithe dancers" as well as "stocky mean-looking bikers" and "redheads of all ages, shapes and sizes". The whole idea behind finding these peculiar looking people to be used as orc extras is that their faces will require less make-up. New Zealand's reported that Amazon's casting calls are now "urgent" as they want to hurry the shooting process along.
