Friday Nite Lite, on a Saturday Morning: Will the dancing Hitlers please wait in the wings! We are only seeing singing Hitlers.Posted: June 29, 2013 | |
Actually, we don’t need dancing or singing Hitlers. Hell, all we need is for you to look like Hitler, no acting experience necessary.
In a new Craigslist ad, the History Channel (a.k.a., the “No History” channel, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley) is searching for Adolf Hitler look-alikes to cast in a new mini-series exploring about the “epic events of WWI and WWII.”
Somehow actual acting experience is not a requirement; neither is a German accent. So basically, the main criteria for the gig is: Look like Hitler.
Do that and the History Channel will fly you out to the U.S. east coast, and then to Germany, to film the unnamed series, which will also feature Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (whose lookalikes also require no acting experience or convincing accents):
We are currently casting a 6-hour docu-drama mini-series that will tell the story of the key world leaders through the epic events of WWI and WWII, and we are seeking men to play the roles of:
Adolf Hitler (age 25 – 56)
Winston Churchill (age 35 – 65)
Franklin D. Roosevelt (age 30 – 60)
The most important thing is a physical resemblance to the actual historical figures. The majority of the cast will be tracked over decades, so we will be exploring the possibility of casting two people to play both “young” and “old” versions, as well as the possibility of casting a single individual who could be aged up & down. Anyone who falls within the age ranges above could submit themselves. Previous acting experience is not required. German accent (for Hitler) and British accent (for Churchill) is also helpful, but also not required.
Looks like this docu-drama is going to be an excellent showcase of talent(/snark)…too bad the audition will not be as enjoyable as this:
Mona will have your Saturday Reads later on…Now for the extra cartoons from last night.
To understand this cartoon about McDonalds and the Chase Debit card…Former McDonald’s Worker Sues Franchise for Paying Wages Via Debit Card – ABC News
A former McDonald’s worker in Pennsylvania is suing a franchiser owner saying she was required to receive her wages through a debit card that charged fees, resulting in some hourly employees receiving less than minimum wage.
Natalie Gunshannon, a single mother, 27, said she and other workers were paid through a JPMorgan Chase Payroll Card, which has a $1.50 fee for ATM withdrawals, a $10 inactivity fee after 90 days, and a 75 cent online payment fee per transaction and other fees.
Gunshannon, who filed a lawsuit in the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas, is hoping to have her case certified as a class action on behalf of the other employees who were paid with the Payroll card.
That is going to be a case to keep an eye on…
Love the “Moose and Squirrel” lurking in the hallway.
This is an open thread.
