Open casting calls for the reality series Who Wants to Be A Superhero are scheduled for Tuesday, April 4th (Zoinks! That's tomorrow!) at the Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood at 10AM. If you plan on auditioning, superhero costumes are mandatory. You must also be prepared to strut your superhero, um, stuff and present your, ahem, credo. The winner of the competition gets their Superhero immortalized in a new comic book created by Stan Lee , as well as star in an original SciFi Channel movie.
From their website:
...you don’t have to love comic books to be the Superhero we’re looking for. If you have a great imagination, love adventure, and have a hero hiding inside of you, we want you on this show. Students, teachers, firemen, soccer moms, you’re all invited to try out to see if you’ve got what it takes. From thousands of hopefuls, Stan Lee will choose 11 lucky finalists to move into a secret lair and compete for the opportunity to become a real-life Superhero!
Finalists will leave their former lives behind and live as their brainchild heroes 24/7, all under Stan Lee’s watchful eye. Each week, our aspiring heroes will be challenged with competitions designed to test their true Superhero abilities. Don’t worry, no one will be leaping over tall buildings in a single bound. Our Superheroes will be tested for courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion, and resourcefulness, all traits that every Superhero must possess. In the end, only one aspiring Superhero will have the inner strength and nobility to open the gates to comic book immortality forever!
Oh yeah, must TiVo that. Just for one day I wish I could work on the Sunset Gower Studios lot again, just to see that parade. If you can't make it tomorrow, you can also send in an audition tape (more information on their website).
