‘Survivor’ Cast Call Today At Casino

Hundreds of people are expected to try to outwit, outplay and outlast their competitors today when they turn out for an open casting call at the Northern Quest Casino and Resort for the reality CBS show “Survivor.” 100 people will strut their stuff for Survivor producers Friday night. Producers say they want people who are strong-willed, outgoing, adventurous, physically and mentally adept, are able to adapt to new environments and who have interesting lifestyles, backgrounds and personalities. Starting at 11 a.m. Friday crews will distribute raffle tickets to everyone in line at Northern Quest/Tove Tupper, KREM. More here. (AP file photo: “Survivor Vanuatu” competitors begin season)

‘Thunderballs’ Issues Mullet Call

The Spike TV sitcom pilot, “Thunderballs,” will start filming in Spokane next week and the casting call speaks volumes about the show. For one thing, they are seeking someone to play the “Olympia Beer Bikini Girl.” The show is about a group of 30-something guys on a bowling team and, like every show on Spike, it is aimed at the male market. Or should we say, the dude market. Here are a few of the fictional bowling teams being cast locally through Big Fish NW Talent: The Mullets (plus a Mullet Mom and Mullet Baby). The Super Vixens. Ballbarians/Jim Kershner, Spotlight. More here. (Wikipedia photo of a mullet)

Question: Do you now or have you ever worn a mullet? C'mon, fess up.
