Senior Editor, CNBC.com
It seems Occupy Wall Street may soon be coming to reality television.
MTV has apparently put out a casting call looking for young Occupiers to be a part of its Real World franchise.
Here's the ad that appeared on Craig's List:
MTV's Real World is seeking cast members to tell their unique stories on our show. If you are over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, and the description below sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
Are you a part of the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement?
If so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject heading should be YOUR NAME and WALL STREET.
Please attach 3 RECENT PHOTOS and a brief BIO, including your full NAME, DATE OF BIRTH (for ID purposes only) as well as your CONTACT INFORMATION including PHONE #.
Entertainment Weekly talked to Sasha Alpert, a casting director for the show.
“This all came out of the current zeitgeist,” Alpert told EW. “We are always looking for people who are involved in whatever is going on in the world around them. We are always looking for passionate people.”
