Today I saw a casting notice that piqued my interest:
The Discovery Channel is looking for talented hosts (Men, women, actors, hosts, comedians!) to star in its next, long running hit series.
We are searching for charismatic individuals à la Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” or the team from “Mythbusters.” We don’t, however, want CLONES of those hosts. The most important elements of our search are that:
1. The talent MUST feel authentic and relatable to middle America. They should be the type of fun and engaging host that you want to be your friend!
2. The talent MUST be able to host a show that is visceral, challenging and exciting. They have to be willing to try anything!
I’m sure it’s a big lottery but never the less I sent an email. I was just going to send some links to some of my stuff online but then I decided that wasn’t good enough so I edited together a demo of my best “hosting” moments from “Movie Musketeers” since that seemed relevant, as well as a link to my rough acting demo (damn, I need to update that) and a link to our whole youtube catalog just in case they want to browse or view some things in their entirety.
I’m sure the chances are slim to none, but it can’t hurt to try! That would just be too cool.
