People use Craigslist for all kinds of things: selling furniture, buying concert tickets, finding jobs. But would you ever think the site could get you a role in a feature film?

Apparently, it can, because the production team behind Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's upcoming film, "The Nest," used Craigslist to find a few last-minute cast members in Long Island.

Vanity Fair found the ad online that said the film was seeking "real professional manic/PEDICURISTS to portray Female Korean Nail Salon Workers" for a "Tina Fey & Amy Poehler film."

Universal found the ad was real. So last Friday, there were a few super lucky nail artists in Long Island who got paid to have the best day ever.

Besides these lucky Craigslisters, and Fey and Poehler, "The Nest" features Maya Rudolph as Fey and Poehler's childhood friend. Fey and Poehler play estranged sisters, and the film follows them as they return to their childhood home to throw one last party before it is sold.

The movie also stars Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, and James Brolin. "The Nest" is scheduled to come out on December 18, 2015.
