Someone forwarded me the following note from a casting service searching Southern California for rugged-looking booth bunny dudes:

COMIC CON (Promo Models)
Live Project

Casting Director: XXX XXXXX
Wardrobe Fitting Date: July 11th
Shoot/Call Date: July 22nd --July 26th
Pay Rate: $XX/hr plus incentives.
Location: San Diego Convention Center



Must be available July 22nd-26th -- Approximately 7 hrs per day. Both Morning and Evening Shifts are available, so please indicate your preference.


Good looking but rugged types are preferred. Must have an athletic build think Hugh Jackman. Must have the ability to stand for long periods of time. Must be a dependable team player. **Be available for all shifts (including a fitting prior to the event-date TBD) Flexible schedule a plus! Promotional experience a plus! Have an outgoing personality with exceptional people skills. Duties will include engaging with the public, relaying talking points, posing for pictures and distributing promo merch. Ambassadors will be provided a costume and may be in character.
Hey, I can stand up for long periods of time, have the body of former Green Bay Packer Gilbert Brown and I was thinking about Hugh Jackman not 20 minutes ago... wait, I think that means I have to look like Hugh Jackman. Never mind. Anyway, that's not a world into which many of us are privy, so I thought it might be worth posting here. (I'm assuming this is a public posting but if I'm violating something, that's my fault and I'll be happy to take it down immediately.)
