For those of you that missed my post earlier this week (here), they are having a casting call tomorrow (Saturday) for "The Surrogates" a new Bruce Willis movie. What I didn't know, is that there's a informal/secret 2nd casting call that a Bloggery Reader emailed me about. Here are the details:

I read your blog pretty religiously and noticed the casting call for the Surrogates movie. One of my roommates is actually working on that movie and told me that in addition to the public BU casting call, there will be one later on that day at the Liberty Hotel, where the actors are staying.

I think this additional casting call is more informal than the BU one, as it is much less going to be a mob scene. It's going to be around after-dinner time at the Alibi bar. It sounds like some woman is just going to be there (no one will know who she is) and she's just going to go up to people if she thinks they look right for the part. The same restrictions about physical perfection applies and it is best if people have a slightly 'edgy/futuristic' look. She wasn't too certain about all the minor details but I guess if someone was really serious about getting into the biz, they should maybe hang out at Alibi on Saturday night.

Unfortunately for me, I don't embody the element of "physical perfection" that they're apparently looking for (although maybe my mom would disagree) and I'll also still be on a plane back from the west coast.

I'll just have to live vicariously through you guys. If anyone goes and tries out or just goes to check out all the "physically perfect" people in Boston - snap some pics and send them to me. I'd love to post them here.

PS. Special thanks to the reader for sending me the lowdown.

    i went to the official castings at cp casting. got a call back within the week, that was way back uring spring break. i went back for the second casting with the director himelf.

    i thought he liked me, i have also received no callback. should i still be waiting lol i dont even know

    maybe i was hoodwinked by their good charm while theyre thinking "not a chance" lol

    hopefully my experience has put others into perspective, but i would also like a more concrete answer on the matter :-/

    I have to say i was disappointed with the way they handled the surrogates.

    I went down and waited in line 4 hours just to have my picture taken and never heard from anyone again

    and it was some obscure company I had never heard of handling the casting

    RPM Casting or something like that

    I like the way Boston Casting does movies better
