What TV station? Are we sure this is not a ploy to kidnap/kill Sox fans to hurt attendance? Can we trust a) someone from the Tribune and b) someone who types in all caps?

Usually in acting they aren't looking for someone who is EXACTLY twentyone, they are looking for someone who looks like they could be twenty-one. I'm only nineteen and I've gotten roles for age 25.

I know, I am 21 and I get offered roles for 40+yrs old.

I don't trust anything coming from the Trib
This has all the markings of a ploy to make Sox fans look bad. Kinda like what Fox does with American Idol contestants.

I'm assuming this is legit because this thread went from being roadhoused and closed yesterday to stuck in the Clubhouse. I'm sure the mods had conversation with alennie to make sure this is on the up and up. Or I could be 10000000 percent wrong like I usually am........

I am mostly afraid that is legit and the trib will be searching for William Ligue lookalikes to represent sox fans, while they get chad and trixie straight outta OSU to represent cub fans

Hey, give the foreign kid a break.

Besides, kittle42 has his hands full as is. (I assume this "is" is okay at the end of a sentence.)

Your posts are amusing and humorous. I will say that we in no way, shape, or form wish to make anyone look bad (yes, even those of you in Evergreen Park). It will be humorous, but not mean.

We are going to be making a decision soon. Lots of great entries. Keep 'em coming.

Is that "negatory" about you or all of WSI?

I didn't get picked, but then I did not fall in the right age category, so I did not apply (my agent called many times, but they ignored her).

Sorry about the bump--just wanted to give you guys the heads-up that the commercials were shot today.

I'm in the one with the 2 guys kvetching in the basement, sporting my 83 jersey.

They should be running in about 10 days.
