WTF Alert: James Franco’s Casting Call

OMG… I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

James Franco is currently looking for an actress to join his new low-budge film, an adaptation of the book The Sound and the Fury. But before all you struggling thespians out there get too excited about shopping sprees and fancy meals if you get the part, there’s one caveat: it’s for really low pay. But don’t worry, because the casting call letter reminds you that working with James is enough of an award.

“For those wanting to work with James, that in itself can be considered great currency,” it reads. “He is a fantastic director and quite loyal to his actors!! This story is both deep and rich!”

I totally get that you have to start somewhere when trying to make it in the industry, and I understand low budgets (I mean, I’ve never had one, but I understand the concept…) but did they really have to put that part in there? That alone would deter me from auditioning. Do you agree?

COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of James Franco

    It shouldn’t be about the money or the famous actor you get to work with. Its about the story, the film that will be created. If it isn’t a story worth telling, I wouldn’t audition.

  2. sam Said:

    unlike you, humphrey, not everything is about chasing paper. so what if it’s low pay? the experience should be enough. and if the movie exceeds expectations, then let it serve as a stepping stone to greater things. stop giving us a piece of your small mind.

  3. April Neilson Said:

    I’m not a perfessional actress, but if they need extras, I would love to be apart of the film.

  4. Eryn Hurst Said:

    I honestly wouldn’t really care about the money as much as the awesome experience and I honestly wouldn’t think twice about being a part of such a unique story.

  5. Chantelle Naude Said:

    It seems like a pretty cool experience especially for people keen to crack into the business.
    How exactly do you go about auditioning or or finding more information about it though? It seems pretty hush hush
