It's Funny Because It Sounds Degrading!


PMSports.com, a new sports comedy video website launching in September, is casting performers for originally created, professionally produced video content. Producer states: "The content we produce is often racy, provocative, but always comedic. Think ESPN meets The Chappelle Show, Howard Stern, and Family Guy. This is an opportunity to get exposure and professional experience within the acting industry for a website with a production and marketing budget which will be seen by thousands of people immediately this fall. If selected, our casting director will bring you in to read for our producer and/or director in our 5,000-square-foot Lower Manhattan loft where we produce and shoot most of our shows."
(That description makes me feel creepy - like it's an contest for a vacation package or something: "Winners will receive a meet-and-greet with the people who might actually hire them, a fresh, unopened bottle of spring water, and a chance to sit and relax on a real, genuine chair inside a very large room! Deadline for entries ends soon, so hurry, hurry, hurry! And don't forget to take your top off.") Nick XXXXX, exec. prod.; Dale XXXXX, dir. Shooting multiple videos over the next six weeks. Seeking—Actresses: 18-40, all ethnicities, for various roles, comfortable acting in suggestive and vulgar sketches that are provocative in nature and involve shooting in bikinis and/or revealing clothing. Note: Also seeking multi-cultural actresses as well as Arabs and Israelis (Are Arabs & Israelis usually exempt from the "multi-cultural" label, and therefore listed separately?) and heavyset actresses who are comfortable doing a sketch in a bathing suit, extensive camera or acting experience not necessary. Possible brief topless nudity required for some sketches. Reply by email to XXXXX.com and attach your headshot & résumé, state the role you are interested in along with your availability in the coming weeks, and put "actor" in the subject line. No pay, but credit and meals provided.
