Yes, this is a political blog, but right now, I don’t care. This is just too cool.
Guys, if you have the afternoon off on Monday, March 26, and if you’ve ever wanted to be in a movie, you might want to head down to Colorado Springs. The crew of the new Johnny Depp movie, the re-make of the Lone Ranger, is holding open auditions for film extras. Seriously.
Thing is, they’re looking for really tall people, really short people, people with special abilities, and people who are really ugly. Which probably means you’re out.
But if you fit any of those categories, all you need to bring is a 3×5 photo of yourself, from the waist up. There are lotsa details, courtesy of the Colorado Springs Independent, but here’s the relevant info for Monday:
