Real World: Occupy Wall Street? MTV Issues Casting Call for Protesters


Is Occupy Wall Street ready to start being real? Bunim/Murray Productions, the agency casting for MTV’s Real World 27, appears to think the show Real World needs some real world drama: an ad appeared on Craigslist yesterday seeking members of the Occupy Wall Street movement to audition for the proto-reality show. Maybe the agency saw the Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street Tumblr?

MTV’s Real World is seeking cast members to tell their unique stories on our show. If you are over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, and the description below sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
