Everyone’s least favorite musical to drag sticky children to (after Cats and RENT), is now filming in New York, and as of right this very second, you could be auditioning for the Jay-Z and Will Smith-backed reboot of Annie. The new film, which starrs Cameron Diaz as Ms. Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks, is holding a casting call as we speak for extras and featured extras.
It’s good money, too, which should offset the tinge of dissapointment that the leading orphan will be played by Beasts of the Southern Wild‘s Quvenzhane Wallis instead of Willow Smith. We know, it’s a blow to us all.
This today, from Doron Ofir Casting, the people behind star-making reality show future-hits like Tattoo Nightmares , EDM (the first Electric Dance Music reality competition) and Tug Of War:
I LOVE MY GROSS GUY!
Arrested Development, the show that has lived in suspended animation for almost twice as long as it was actually on television, is coming back to life through a new Netflix season and a feature film. The rumors are true! And not only that, but you, average person who is not a film extra, now have an opportunity for a walk-on role in the show!
(Insert your favorite Arrested Development line here. Ex: “I just blue myself,” “But where did the lighter fluid come from?” “Gene Parmesan!” etc.)
