Fame Monsters Wanted
As an aspiring fame monster, you could move to Lala land, pose for a nudie mag, and snag an agent. Or you could roll up to some random university in Fort Lauderdale, star in a sea of extras, and wait for the director to single you out. What? It happened to Courtney Cox, spotted in the crowd at Boss concert, and Pamela Anderson, who was cam candy at a football game. But perhaps those faux-beginning stories are part of the PR package when you land an agent. In any event, a movie, starring Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes, and Al Pacino, is filming in South Florida next month, and they're looking for hundreds of extras. Read on for a chance at stardom. Despite its cast, the movie Jack & Jill is not an awesome Billy Madison/Scarface /Dawson's Creek threesome. It's a comedy in which Sandler plays both a man and his own twin sister (who looks like a poor man's ugly Kathy Griffin). If you're a fan of Sandler's last flick Grown Ups, you'll be stoked to hear that this film is also directed by Dennis Dugan, who we blame for the embarrassment that was I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. Anyway, back to you being famous. This weekend, Sande Alessi Casting is are holding a casting call for "hundreds of fashionable looking males and females of all ages and ethnicities; singles, couples, and real families (including children of all ages)." Filming begins November and all extras will be paid actual money ($100 for ten hours of labor). Since 13% of Miamians ain't got no job, we expect the casting call to be freaking packed. To stand out, we suggest you bring a current 3x5 color photo of yourself and wear your best upscale, but casual, cruise wear. It's time to reinforce some Florida sterotypes.
