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!

Thanks again,

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.

    Why does Tim look like the Mac kid? Not fair! Eh, I guess he did lose his legs in Iraq… it’s pretty hard to top that. Good luck! It would be so cool to see a local on the big screen.

    I wonder if Mayor Luke is going to show up on the set like Eddie Murphy pretending to be a guy with no legs. Hey, Charlize! Once you had a man with no legs, you’ll never go back”.

    My fear is that the crazy bitch from Irwin is going to show up and start throwing raw meat and beating them with their own fake legs. How incredibly unfortunate would that be?
    I just hope she is still in jail at that time…but, hey…maybe there is a role in this film for her sister?
