Yeah, so I received this e-mail last night. From the website, it’s clear they’re aiming for a Brooklyn-based version of Jersey Shore, unimaginatively targeting New York Italian-American stereotypes. Their website lays it on heavy with the tanning, abs and “Fuhgeddaboudit” bullshit. Not to mention the example name they use on their casting call application is Tony Napoli (I wonder what Tony Napoli thinks of that).
Here’s the text of the casting call, for those who can’t view the image above:
