“Star Trek” casting call: boldly go where no fan has gone before

on

Has anyone ever told you that

you look weird exotic?

Do you have any unique facial

characteristics?

Are you willing to make sacrifices

for the sake of art?

If so, and you live near Burbank,

CA, this is your chance to explore strange new worlds — like the set

of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie. Open casting call is this Saturday,

November 10, 2:30–5 p.m., at 3108 Magnolia Blvd., across from Pinocchio’s

Restaurant.

Everyone is welcome, male or female, ages

18–70, any ethnicity, as long as you are "thin, athletic

[and] fit," have brown or black hair and are OK with having part of your eyebrows

shaved
in case

you are cast as a Vulcan or Romulan. If you’ve already had your ears sculpted, so much the better.

Here’s how to get the inside

track: look "interesting."

"Talent with interesting

and unique facial features such as: long necks, small heads, extremely

large heads, wide-set eyes, bug eyes, close-set eyes, large forehead,

short upper lip, pronounced cheekbones, over- or undersized ears and/or

nose, facial deformities, ultra plain-looking people, ultra perfect-looking

people, pure wholesome looks, twins, triplets, emaciated talent, regally

poised and postured talent, or other visually unique characteristics."

You know, a woman with several

of those features asked me to dance at a women’s bar a few weeks ago.

Too bad I lost her number — she’d be a shoo-in.

What can you expect if you

get cast? The opportunity to have a professional makeup artist help

you look your best.

A designer wardrobe.

And a chance to work with a

diverse group of fellow actors.

Oh, one thing you should know.

These roles likely are redshirts, which means you’ll probably get killed.

But hey, death scene.
