Thousands of wanna-bes are planning to risk long lines, heat exhaustion and thunderstorms – not to mention broken ankles from their 6-inch heels – for a bit part in the “Sex and the City” movie sequel.
“Think you’ve got the look? Show off your sense of style in the newest Sex and the City movie!” gushes one of the ads for next Tuesday’s open audition for extras in Chelsea.
The call from New York casting company Grant Wilfley is expected to attract record crowds.
Hopefuls do not have to be members of the Screen Actor’s Guild but are asked to show up looking “Sex and the City fabulous.”
Producers say they need to cast a variety of non-speaking “fashionistas” and “chic New Yorkers” for the movie, which is reported to start shooting soon.
The ads call specifically for: “models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, urban clubgoers, gays and lesbians, international types (Middle Eastern, Arabic, Asian, European, British) and professional soccer players.”
Competition will be tough: There is a lot of interest in appearing – no matter how fleetingly – in the sequel to Sarah Jessica Parker’s 2008 box office smash.
If you think you have the look but can’t make the casting call at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W. 18th St., e-mail a headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org
That might be the safest option. Back in March, the casting call for “America’s Next Top Model” was far from pretty.
A bevy of beauties launched a mini-riot on the sidewalk after waiting on line for hours without food or restrooms.
If the same thing happens at the “Sex and the City” auditions, beware: Those stilettoes could prove lethal.
