The Lord of the Rings TV Series Casting For ‘Funky-Looking’ Faces

href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerNew Line

Do you have an overbite? Are you extremely and almost dangerously hairy? Are you very very short? Or super-duper tall? Are you missing teeth? Do you have “long skinny limbs”? Have you been burdened with “acne scars, ears that stick out,” or a “bulbous or interesting nose?” Do you have a false eye that you can remove on command?

If any or all of these sound like you definitely check out this Facebook ad from BGT talent agency, who are currently casting for Amazon’s upcoming TV series adaptation of The Lord of the Rings and are looking for, in their words “funky-looking” people to fill out the cast. They literally asked for people with false eyes that can be removed on command.

The Facebook post includes a whole list of types they want:

  • Short people under 4 foot 12 (we know that 4 foot 12 is 5 foot)
  • Tall people over 6 foot 5
  • Character faces, wrinkles and lots of them please
  • Androgynous men and women
  • Hairy hairy people of all ages and ethnicities
  • Tall, Long Lithe dancers
  • Circus performers who can juggle, stilt walk!
  • Stocky mean-looking bikers
  • Eurasian people of all ages.
  • Hispanic – Latino, Mexican, South American
  • Red heads all ages, shapes and sizes.
  • HAIR HAIR HAIR – if you natural red hair, white hair, or lots and lots of freckles.
  • Middle-earth don’t manscape, apparently.

    Interested parties are welcome to email evelina@bgt.nz — but you need to be “a New Zealand resident or hold a valid New Zealand work visa.” Sorry to all the stocky, mean-looking bikers who can also juggle and stilt walk out there in the good old United States of America. Perhaps someday they’ll reboot Sons of Anarchy just for you.

    James Cameron Starts Two-Week Quarantine For ‘Avatar 2’ Filming

    href=”//screencrush.com/author/claireepting/” rel=”author” title=”Claire Epting”>Claire Epting20th Century Fox

    As Avatar 2 ramps up to start filming again, James Cameron is going into a 14-day government supervised quarantine to reduce the chances of spreading the coronavirus on set.The self-isolation will take place on location in New Zealand, where production will resume on the long-anticipated Avatar sequels. Producer Jon Landau shared a photo to his Instagram, depicting himself and Cameron arriving in Wellington as they gear up for the next two weeks:

    Technically, New Zealand borders are still closed. But an exception was made for Cameron, Landau, and other crew members due to the fact that their work is considered to have “significant economic value.” Well, they aren’t kidding. The first Avatar movie grossed $2.79 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing movie in history up until that point. Plus, movie production started to creep back in New Zealand starting in May, so a mid-June shooting date isn’t preposterous.

    Despite the delays, Cameron is still set on a December 2021 release date. It might just be possible. Last December, Cameron told Variety that motion capture for sequels 2 and 3 had been completed, along with most of the live action footage. This last stretch in New Zealand is the finishing puzzle piece to getting that first sequel out by 2021. Ultimately, it will come down to whether those few lost months will offset the rest of post-production. As of now, we still have a new Avatar movie coming by December of next year. Merry Christmas to us.

    Tech N9ne – Wifi (WeeFee) (The Storm Deluxe Edition Album)

    [Intro:]
    Yeah *laughter*
    Go right up

    [Verse 1]
    Connect, ain’t nobody but Tech
    I been dope since I put raps on BASF cassette
    Since then my pen been at war like Montagues and Capulets
    A menacing strap you get, been winning in rap who’s next
    To get permanent power polluted, paper protruded
    Punani praise on its pubics and they’re prepared to pursue it
    Get us then we drills em
    Having plenty thrills um wellington New Zealand banging her with a chest like Wendy Williams
    Everybody know with the kinda money I bring to the table I can put em off
    Take em all around the world, get the dough and get the girl touching other people and I brought the hood along
    Teams where I wings fly people I never seen cry
    If you wanna see the mean side just go stream what I seen on steam, put your hand in my bean pie
    Salam [?]
    I’m something fierce, I bring player haters to tears with my schemes
    Come reach me, I got the species locked and no one can beat me
    The feces, what I released on this beat he’s gonna wanna seek me because I’m the WeeFee

    [Hook]
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    I can put you on
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    With my push alone
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
    WeeFee

    [Verse 2]
    People need me, I’m the WeeFee
    I get them on movies and TV
    Connecting Scooby and Stevie
    Straight from Missouri to Fiji
    Trying to intrigue me ain’t easy
    Unless you bringing them bad beasies in three-bies
    We be having them louder than 194 dB
    Organ, grinding, so they pour us in their mouth, and they’re loving it like Thorazine
    When they freaking out I’m Jim Morrison
    But I go without hair Billy Corgan
    Releasing a lot more of them endorphins
    WeeFee wins the war again the gores been like a horror film
    Cause we kill, everything so be still
    When we move in, not a cheap thrill
    When the beat feels like E pills
    Steadily repping B till, my B-L-double O-D spills
    Then again Tech Nina keep mills
    So I know I’mma get me a refill
    Tech is highly respected
    Been with a few major labels and left it
    I rated my records intrepid
    Since they didn’t rep it then F it
    Now I’m elected to get the check and invest it
    I’m such a vet you can bet I can get you connected
    Cause I’m the WeeFee

    [Hook]
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    I can put you on
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    With my push alone
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
    WeeFee

    [Verse 3]
    If you with me but hating me
    Disconnect from me, get away from me
    Get a bit of fake thinkin’ they’re big as your paper be
    When they try to shake a G they normally have to take a fee that’s lower than what they pay for he that works in Eminem’s bakery
    You doubt a N9ne, you out of sight you out of mind
    Nigga shout a crime from me they sniffing them powder lines
    I’m the righteous
    But I’m killing ’em like I’m Cypress
    Play me like I’m not the nicest
    No WeeFee leave you lifeless
    Taking a knife to fight with ISIS, I like it
    When they spite they get vices
    When they hit that pipe think they’re psychic
    Wanna figure my mic and try to slice it
    But they do fizzle when they hear SuWu whistles
    Disrespect me true this will happen and they lose signal
    This was long awaited
    Strange is how all the fakes were created
    They think they made it, forgot about me and skated
    They music, everybody played it cause I was right there to save it
    They downgraded they hate it cause their signal is faded
    Cause I’m the WeeFee, nigga

    [Hook]
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    I can put you on
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    With my push alone
    WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
    Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
    WeeFee
