You know you want to act. EVERYBODY does. Here’s your chance.

Look, who hasn’t at one point in time watched Tom Cruise well up his big alligator tears or Julia Roberts twist her ginormous mouth into a knot of unspoken tension and said to themselves, “I could do that.”

Here’s your chance. The awesome dudes over at “Something to Be Desired,” a web sitcom filmed in the Burgh and currently in its fourth season, is holding auditions.

I feel like I owe these guys and gals because I have been promising them for weeks that I would watch the series a bit and comment on it on the blog, because I think it is a perfect fit for an item in the Burgh Blog. I don’t know yet whether I like it or not, because in case you haven’t picked up on it … I haven’t found time to watch it yet. I did read this article in the Trib about it.

Therefore, until such a time that I can post on the awesomeness or unawesomeness of the show, why don’t you get your hot talented self out there and audition. If it is an awesome show, you’ll want to be part of it. If it is a wholly unawesome show … maybe your awesomeness will fix that.

    Things I Didn’t Expect to Happen Today, #124:
    I hopped onto my favoritist blog evers, and found not pigeons, not Troy Polomalu, not even Luke Ravenstahl, but my boyfriend’s roommate front-n-center. Playing hangman. …With a man who is unable to spell “vagina”.

    They do a great job of showcasing the city. I keep mentioning the new episodes on my blog in hopes that more people will watch. This is Pittsburgh in a good way, as opposed to how it’s represented by certain wannabe faux-English actrresses…..

    Thanks for the shout-out. Just for the record, the punchline to that scene is him saying, “Dude, that is not how you spell fajita.”

    You should ask Sienna Miller to be in one of your movies, more people would probably see that than the ones she makes now.
