Casting Call Verified!!
Friday, October 08, 2010
Have you ever wondered how those people get in to be part of Obama's campaign speeches? You know, the ones who sit behind him and look like they are the nodding heads dolls?
Well, wonder no more. Here is your chance to become a TV actor! I find it interesting that they are looking for ACTORS and not "regular" people.
So I did a little investigating, and found out that sure enough, most of the time, they truly do use actors as their audience!! No pay, but you could at least get seen on TV, if that is your burning desire!
An actor who reads Campaign Spot passes along this interesting notice in Backstage.com:
PRESIDENT OBAMA TOWN HALL, MTV
MTV, BET and CMT are casting the audience for town hall meeting with
President Obama. Shooting Oct. 14, 4 p.m. in Washington, D.C.
Seeking—Audience Members: males & females, 18+.
To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org and
put “Town Hall” in the subject line. To ensure that the audience
represents diverse interests and political views, include your name, phone number,
hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are
interested in or passionate about. Also, provide a recent photo and
short description of your political views. Submission deadline: Oct. 14.
When you suspect the questioners have been pre-screened . . . well . . . there you go.
I love the “what issues, if any, you are interested in.” If you know nothing about politics and have no interest in any topic . . . eh, come along anyway.
Then again, maybe they just want to make sure they get the pretty people.
But you know, once I think about it, I have come to the belief that the only people at these talks who are NOT actors are the cameramen. Then again, they, too, are in the entertainment field.
I'll be glad when this tragic comedy of errors is Gone With The Wind and we can become AMERICA again.
Don't forget to vote! I can see November from my house!
