I'll Take A Pack Of Menthols, Today's 'Times', And... Oh - Are Those Melons Ripe?

Blood Bath Pictures is casting for "Bikini Blood Bath," an indie DV feature horror film starring Debbie XXXXX. Jon XXXXX & Thomas XXXXX, dir.-prods.; Bruce XXXXX, prod. Shooting Oct. 15-23 in central CT. Seeking—Actresses: attractive females, ages 18-35, lead and supporting roles, nudity required. Auditions will be held Sept. 24, 4-8 p.m. at The Underground Deli, (Like, as in and actual deli? Where you can get a sandwich and a pickle?) 1537 Stanley St., New Britain, CT (across the street from CCSU, beneath Another Bookstore, at Central Square Plaza). Sides will be provided and the auditions will be filmed. At the optional callback, one topless scene will be performed off-camera (in front of two male producers and two female casting assistants). Because they don't care how your breasts look on-camera. And they don't want to be disrespectful of you, you know, by having you taped naked if you don't get the part. They would never disrespect women like that when they can just simply pull you aside into the handicap stall of the men's room at - what I am sure is - a very nice food store and have you flash them there, where the image of your boobs will only remain in their twisted minds and NOT on film. They would never do that. Ever. Because they obviously see women as being very worthwhile and respectable creatures, with a lot more to offer the world than some b-rated acting and their exposed bosoms. If you cannot attend the auditions, send pix, résumés, and reels to Attn: Jon XXXXX, XXXXX, Plantsville, CT 96479; email XXXXX.com; or call Jon at XXXXX. For more info, visit www.bikinibloodbath.com. Pay (although you're not getting paid for the naked callback), plus videocopy, credit, meals, and lodging provided. Nonunion.

(A hidden mountain community's greed? I'm so desperate to know what they're so greedy about. "Thems my shiny rocks! You git yer own shiny rocks!") Dir. Drew XXXXX. Shoot starts Sept. in in Colorado. Copy, credit, meals, travel, and lodging provided. There is pay.

I have to say I am really pleased to see this pays. It's becoming more and more apparent to me that the New York area is where most people want you to bare it all for nothing more than a piece of pizza and a bottle of Poland Spring.

Sincerely, JT

A casting call for a bunch of adolescent and teenage kids and middle-aged men, only? That also happens to lack any and all information on what the show is actually about? Gross. I get the feeling the men auditioning are going to get ambushed by Chris Hansen when they walk into the audition room.

Boobs Make Everything Scarier

INDIE HORROR

Casting twist-ending independent horror shorts and a Gothic-type feature. Seeking: females, 18 to 30-ish, attractive, exotic, and busty types to play lead heroines, victims, vampresses, gypsies, nurses, maids; males, 30-plus, character types for intense scientists, Catholic priests. Non-union. No experience necessary (models welcome). Transportation and DVD copy. Pay for leads. Send pix & resumes to Shriekcinema...

Why bother with the twist-endings when, based on the casting notice, I'd say these projects already sound completely unpredictable and unorthodox for the horror genre. Older professional men, young top-heavy working girls... I'm frightened already.

Psychics + Lesbian Law Enforcement = Good Entertainment

"CLOSING TIME," INDIE THRILLER
Casting for "Closing Time," independent digital cinema feature. Principal photography in July in Stamford, CT. Mystery thriller about small-town sheriff and local psychic trying to solve three missing person cases. Seeking--Father Mark: Caucasian, 40-50, streetwise, conservative; Colonel Rook: Caucasian, 60-70, Korean War veteran; Nickie: all ethnicities, easygoing, friendly, lesbian sherriff; James: all ethnicities, 30-40, handsome prodigal son who may be psychic; Sandra: all ethnicities, 30-40, serious, dedicated lesbian detective. Some nudity for Nickie, James, and Sandra. Auditions will be held by appointment on May 24-26 from 9AM-5PM at Soundwaters Center, Cove Island Park, 1281 Cove Road, Stamford, CT. For an appointment, email pix and resumes to XXXXX. Meals, credit provided. Low/deferrred pay. Christopher XXXXX, dir.-writer. Producer plans to apply for SAG agreement.

I'm making an early prediction that, at some point, over a cup of warm joe and a moist old-fashioned... holsters and badges start falling to the floor as true love blossoms between the friendly and the dedicated lesbian law enforcers. Looks like James somehow gets caught in the 'action'... or did he see it coming and strategically time his visit to the small town police station???

Sincerely,JT JT

Makes perfect sense. But be careful with the sting-like hair (I'm not sure if they mean they want you to look like Sting, or if your hair should be dangerously sharp - hard to say), but you'll get a SAG waver. Which, I guess, is someone from the union who stands there and waves at you.

Invite The Whole Family!

"BIBLICAL BITCHES" LMNO THEATRE
LMNO Theatre Company is casting four women for a summer production of Jeff Bedillion's "Biblical Bitches." Seeking—Eve: 20s, heroine-chic, dark poet; Delilah: 30s, white trash, rock 'n' roll songstress; Jessie Belle: 40s, voluptuous, country-western singer-dancer; Magdalene: 20s, porn star turned pop star. Some nudity. No pay for rehearsals. Per performance stipend. Send pix & resumes to LMNO Theatre Company, PO Box XXXXX, NYC 10014, Attn: Bitches.

Ever see that episode of Seinfeld where he dates the nude chick and decides that not all nudity is good nudity, and that there are just some things one shouldn't do in the nude? Remember that? Well, I have a feeling that rock n' roll and country/western singing and dancing fall into that that category, too.


Lame Title? Check.
