High Art Jersey Style

‘BAZOOKAS: THE MOVIE’
Truancy Films LLC is casting Bazookas: The Movie, a comedy in the tradition of Porky’s and Old School. Michael XXXXX, dir. Shooting Oct. 13-26 (mostly at night, some extend into the early hours) in Medford, NJ (Cherry Hill area). Awesome. NJ in the wee hours of the morning shooting a sophomoric college parody... I have goosebumps already. Seeking--Background Actors in South Jersey: male and female, 18+, all types, including two scenes requiring actors and actresses, 55+. Note: Also casting several small speaking roles and featured extra roles. Movie takes place in a gym, so wardrobe will be simple. I bet! Email pix and contact info ASAP to XXXXX.com. No pay, but credit provided.

I know I scoff at projects like this that do not pay, but I honestly don't know if you could pay me enough to do a graveyard shift film shoot a la Porky's in a gym somewhere in south Jersey with a few dozen other non-union (translated: "mostly crazy") actors. Is that mean? Ok, ok... maybe I could. I bet those movies are fun to make... But still... something about this makes me exhausted just reading it. Maybe it's the title. You have to give them credit though - "Bazookas: The Movie" does sound way better than "Boobies: Yay For Boobies".

Classic Nudity Required, No Pay.

TRANSLATION:

Sag Waver: Not to be confused with a 'SAG Waiver', a Sag Waver is a representative from the Screen Actor's Guild who stands behind the crew and waves friendly hellos at you as you shoot. This is done to boost morale - especially during topless scenes.

Cubin Goodin Jr.: The Caribbean, Spanish-speaking, non-union stand-in for Cuba Gooding Jr.
