Hi, Justin ! (waves at one of the most helpful and easy-to-understand guys on the forum)

I don't mind the "hijack".

It seems like the extras/background on most of the sets I work are "wrangled" by the 2nd AD. On "The Hunger Games", though, we were given all our actions and managed by a PA... kind of unusual. They also gave her a wireless monitor to her.

Of all the principle cast members I've worked in a scene with, only 4 of them have ever spoken to me. That's about 35 actors in total. Of those 4, 3 were African American. A rough statistic, mind you, but it unofficially seems like they are less likely to be "full of themselves".
