The new Bill And Ted 3 film will be casting some wounded warriors as extras according to tweets made by CNN news anchor Jake Tapper.
Trapper had made the necessary arrangements for a group of wounded veterans to visit the film set through Homes For Our Troops, a nonprofit charity organization that focuses on building and donating specially adapted custom homes for severely injured GWOT Veterans.

What Trapper didn’t know is that screen writer Ed Solomon was going to cast the visiting vets into roles as extras during the filming.
“HUGE shoutout to Ed Solomon, not only for donating a set visit to the latest BILL & TED romp for the winner of last year’s Homes For Our Troops Veterans Day Auction, but for ALSO casting some amazing wounded warriors as extras!” Trapper said in a tweet.
Trapper posted images of the wounded warriors conversing with “Bill and Ted Face the Music” stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, and it looks like they’re having a “most excellent” time. The film is set for release in 2020.
