Casting Call: TLN Needs You! [Updated]

The Lakers Nation may be looking for you!

We are in need of six guys (non-union), aged 18-29, who are clean cut, attractive, with reliable transportation and can be available all day on Saturday, September 26th. We are also looking for six girls (non-union), aged 18-29, who are fit, upscale, with reliable transportation and can be available all day on Saturday, September 26th.

If that’s you, and you are interested in possibly being a part of this, here’s what we need you to do right now:

Submit one (1) recent headshot and one (1) recent full body shot to: Casting.TLN@gmail.com. Please be sure to include your name, email address and a contact phone number where you can be reached. If you don’t have professional pictures done, that’s okay. Our casting director just needs to have a good idea of what you look like.

Please do not send any inappropriate photos. Your submission will immediately be disregarded. Secondly, it is important that your photo is not only really you, but actually looks like you. If you are selected and show up to set with a completely different look than the one in your picture, you will run the risk of likely being replaced on the spot.

Before you submit, here are a few things you should know:

  • This is a non-paying commercial job.
  • You will be given credit(s) for your work.
  • You will be provided with snacks and drinks on the set.
  • Filming will take place in Burbank, CA.
  • Lastly, you will have a good time hanging out with the cast, crew and TLN staff.

You will be contacted by Wednesday, September 23rd if you are selected. Good luck!

**By way of clarification: A lot of questions have been asked by many of you since we posted this, and understandably so. Please understand that we have not given you detailed information because we are not at liberty to do so just yet. We can tell you that this casting call is for featured secondary and background talent for a commercial shoot. Filming will take place on the set of a corporate office. If photo selected by the casting director (who is not a TLN staff member), you will be given all the necessary details.  We encourage you to submit yourself if you think you may fall into one of the categories. :)

    what if you’re 18 but look older…

  • TLN Casting

    Ranggin – That is fine. Age isn’t important, only that you look like you’re 20-29.

    lol. This is so wrong. The post doesn’t even tell you what the volunteers are expected to do.

      im going to have to agree. this “casting call” seems a bit shady. daboss also makes a valid point.y do you need to use the word “attractive”? why not use “fit” or “in shape” at the very least. i mean cmon. so whoever sends their photos in and gets denied are because they’re not considered “attractive”. thats pretty messed up.

      • simplyamazing

        I agree too. This seems unfair. I understand the age but c’mon, they have to be “attractive?” Who are you guys to judge if our looks should determine if we can be in the ad or not? It’s like saying “Hey, TLN needs your help!!! …Well, not you because you’re ugly.” If you’re making an ad consisting of Lakers fans, why don’t you create a some kind of lottery so that it’s fair. I mean, we’re all Lakers fans, we all should have a fair chance of being in it.

  • proemb

    would love to do this for those oh so valuable “credits” but i’m a thirty something year old that looks seventeen + i’m not “attractive” enough…damn.

  • http://www.visionofthefans.com Chris Manning

    Submit anyways everyone. Attractive means you don’t look like Kam, Jim, Shane or I.

  • The Dynasty

    Why not give some sort of idea as to what this thing is?

  • http://www.visionofthefans.com Chris Manning

    Those selected will sign a waiver, then we can discuss what exactly is being filmed. It’s going to be very fun. We’re all excited. Please enter if you are interested!

    • awesomerob24

  • http://thelakersnation.com Kam Pashai

    Thanks to all those who sent in applications! We’ll still take a them in, not TOO late.

    We’re a pretty popular site, so this isn’t sketch. :)

  • http://twitter.com/CheryleLapitan Cheryle

    Aw, can’t wait to see the finished product of this whole thing. :)

  • awesomerob24

    Omg! I want them to call me already!
    I must know now!!!

  • Jerry

    This is the creepiest thing I have ever seen.
    “Hey everybody thats attractive come get in the TLN Rape Bus and go for a ride!”

  • Jeff

    Everyone needs to stop crying… They are looking for attractive candidates. If that’s not you, don’t apply!! Nobody is making you submit photos only to be rejected. This is Hollywood and it takes good looks to get you places. Sorry, but that’s the way it is.

  • Cheryle

    I know it’s all late but, I just submitted mine like 10 min ago. I hope the casting person still checks the e-mail even though they said they would let the people who were chosen know by today (Wednesday).
