The IEFC fax reads: "We're hosting an Open Casting Call for a new Television Pilot filming in Palm Springs at the end of March to April. Looking for all types, 18 to 100, Men and Women, all shapes and sizes, to be paid background extras. Friday March 17th, 1pm to 7pm. Saturday March 18th, 10am to 3pm. Comfort Suites, 69151 E. Palm Canyon. Bring with you a small 3x5 photo (face shot) and a pen."
So I climb the stairs to UKWP (the Untitled Kevin Williamson Pilot project).
Then we fill out our forms and wait. It feels like a long time, but some random snippets of conversation make the boredom almost bearable...
Nice little old lady: "Morty, you're not a 40 Regular. You've always been a 44 Long."
Nice little old man: "What can I say, Sylvia? I shrunk."
Thirtysomething greaseboy, hiding behind a pair of FosterGrants: "My boss is gonna fire me if I take more than an hour for lunch."
A jokester, upon exiting: "Be prepared to take off your clothes."
Most of us: "Hahahahaha."
Nice little old lady: "Morty, do you think he was serious?"
I'm pretty sure this will turn out to be my Big Break.
