Hey, I just wanted to thank you for posting the “Nancy Mosser is looking for one-legged people” thing the other day. I lost my leg in the Iraq War and had worked as an extra with Nancy Mosser for the Kevin Smith movie that was filming in Monroeville Mall, but I hadn’t told them about my leg. So I did a screen test with them yesterday. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I get it!
That’s Tim up there being silly in a photo he tells me his wife took.
In addition, reader Leslie informs me that her father-in-law who lost both of his legs, also applied for the part.
Father-In-Law sent in his application to be the legless, bearded, thin, grizzly guy in the Viggo/Charlize movie being filmed in the Burgh! I knew he’d take his prosthetics off for a shot of being up close and personal with Charlize.
Nothing like being five feet from Charlize Theron to make a guy launch his prosthetics into a closet all, “Fake legs? What fake legs?”
Should either of these two, or even the one-legged homeless guy on Smithfield, get the part, please remind Nancy Mosser of my $650,000 finder’s fee.
