The Real World Season 19 Open Casting
MTV’s HIT SERIES “THE REAL WORLD”
LOOKING FOR NEWEST ROOMMATES
Bunim/Murray to Look for New Stars in Austin, TX area.
201 East 6th Street
Austin, Texas 78701
On October 1, 2006 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Casting Directors from Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of the perennial hit MTV show “The Real World” will be holding an open casting call at Buffalo Billiards 201 East 6th St., Austin, Texas 78701. Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo ID. Must be 18-24 years old.
Seven lucky people will get the opportunity of a lifetime when MTV hands over the keys to a new fantasy pad this year for the show’s 19th season. The Real World, MTV’s longest running show, is a documentary series about seven strangers who spend five months living and working together.
So what does it take to get on the show? “We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” says Jonathan Murray, an Executive Producer of “The Real World.” Past seasons have been populated with cast members from all walks of life, who have shared their daily experiences openly with millions of viewers. Fans of the shows will remember alumni such as the irreverent Teck; Pedro, the HIV/AIDS educator; and Melissa, the hilarious firecracker from the “The Real World: New Orleans” cast.
The challenge will be met as the Bunim/Murray casting department screens tens of thousands of applicants during open casting calls across the country. All of the applicants have one thing in common: they want millions of television viewers to know their name… and who they are.
Everyone between the ages of 18 – 24 is encouraged to bring a recent photo and identification to the open casting call at Buffalo Billiards from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
