Whether you're dying to let you acting abilities shine — in the background — or if you believe you'll find your soulmate on a reality TV show, you'll got two chances to make your small screen debut.
Army Wives is currently looking for extras for the Lifetime show’s fifth season. Prospective extras can register online here and need to upload two JPEG photos of themselves (one close-up, one full body).
They are seeking men and women aged 18-40 in good physical condition to appear as Army personnel, men and women aged 18-65 in good physical condition who appear to be of Middle Eastern descent, and men and women aged 55-85 in good physical condition. Extras who have worked in previous seasons must update their information on the new online database, and new candidates who can’t register online should stop by the show’s casting office (1505 King St. Extension) on Sat. Nov. 13.
Meanwhile in the "real world," when Charleston native Roberto Martinez won The Bachelorette a few months ago, were you jealous? Not because he was named the victor, but because deep down, you’ve always wanted to participate in a romantic reality show? Well, now’s your chance. NBC is holding an open casting call on Sat. Nov. 20 from 6-9 p.m. at Mad River Bar & Grille (32 N. Market St.).
The details on the new show are a little vague so far, but they’re on the hunt for “singles who are looking for love and enjoy adventure.” Locally, they’ll be setting up interviews with Casting Director Robyn Kass, who’s worked with other reality shows like Big Brother and Survivor. The City Paper may not know exactly how the game will be played, but we’re crossing our fingers that contestants have to swing from vines in a race through a jungle to reach the love of their lives.
