Rory's First Kiss = A Hunka, Hunka Bat-Love

In a few days, I will be leaving the Windy City for the beaches of Hilton Head, SC - - something I have been looking forward to for months now. And then today, Dean Richards of WGN-TV posted this on their morning show's blog...

On the show today, I talked about a casting call that's being held for 'Rory's First Kiss.' That's been reported as the code name for the new Batman movie that's being shot here, "The Dark Knight" starring Christian Bale.

If you're interested it's this Saturday, July 14,from 10:00am-3:30pm at the Chicago Academy for the Arts...1010 W. Chicago Avenue.

They're looking for men and women of all ethnicities, 18 years of age and older, to work as paid extras as 'victims or perpetrators within a city besieged with crime and corruption.' That would be Gotham City.

They ask that you bring a recent color photograph and a pen.

Good Luck! - Dean

Just my luck that this audition is scheduled for one of the rare occasions when I travel out of the city.

I mean, if I can't make the audition, then I can't be an extra in THE DARK KNIGHT.

And if I'm not an extra in THE DARK KNIGHT, then Christian Bale will never see me, fall madly and passionately in love with me, throw me into his trailer and whip me around like an erotic Bat-a-rang!!!

I'm sure that Heath Ledger is behind this - - making sure the auditions occur when I'm out of town so he can have Christian all to himself.

Ya'll, if you love me, go to the audition for extras, get in the crowd scene and slip Mr. Bale my number.

Or at least write my contact info on the side of his trailer under the words...

I don't understand why you don't just go down for vacation, drive immediately back up for auditions, drive immediately back down for the rest of your vacation, and then drive immediately back up again to begin filming! Duh! It's so easy! :)
Sorry, timing sucks, don't it?

Lance's Friend - Don't tempt me with that idea of your's!! I just might do it!!

Master Aaron said...

They need someone to portray "corruption?" I am SO at that call. And don't worry, I'll be sure to mention you to boy bale, just as soon as I get a round toit.

Stephen Rader said...

Master Aaron - I don't want sloppy seconds, here!! And don't you dare turn Bale from a pitcher to a catcher!!!

Please, I'm begging you. Don't make The Batman into a butt boy before I get to him!! :)

Oh, too bad. Hope you make up for it by having a great time at Hilton Head. By the way, I got some pretty good seafood at Marleys, by the gate of Sea Pines.

Stephen Rader said...

CS - Thanks for the seafood suggestion! I will definitely check it out. I can't wait for our day trip into Savannah for me to eat at one (or both) of Paula Deen's restaurants!! WOOHOO!!!

Sorry my ya dearly, but if I get to Christian Bale first, your name won't even be mentioned! :)

Stephen Rader said...

khbronson - That is EXACTLY why we are friends!!! It's every girl for herself when it comes to baggin' The Bale!!
