AVGN Movie – Casting Call

James / May 26th, 2011

We are looking for any actors/actresses to be in the AVGN movie. It seems I can’t describe the character roles we’re looking to fill at this moment. So right now, this is going to have to be a vague generic casting call. At some point, in the future, I will have to describe the characters needed in detail. I will say at least we are looking for adults, experienced in acting.

The movie will be filming in the USA, but others willing to travel are welcome to apply also. Please submit a headshot/resume and a demo reel/links to your work (if available) to [email protected]

    Seems all comments are deleted and your post is changed. It’s a shame you can’t specify your casting, since people will bitch and whine about that….

    Now that’s a shame. You try moving forward for the movie and your fans, and that’s what you get in return.

    Congratulations again James, to bring your movie to life !

    Wow, this really doesnt seem right James. You shouldnt have taken down the other post just because some idiots who dont know a damn thing about movies called you racist.

    I hope all you “fans” are happy with yourselves. Cant read, dont know shit about movies, and now you possibly made him change some roles. Way to go guys.

    Please, don’t try to defend James that much. I think he can handle the situation himself.

    Darn, why does it have to be experienced actors only? What if you’ve never acted before, but want to for the first time? Haha McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) had never been in anything before Superbad.

    Bah, I feel like a douche cause it was my jokes that started that shit. To bad you had to change the audition description. I really hope the movie goes well for you. And when you become a big star, don’t forget to run this page with all the magnificent reviews and scteches! 😀

    US and adults? that’s ageism and nationalism….. kidding. Oh how I wish I could get all the way there from NB Canada. I know in the original post you said males approx age 40. Sure, I’m 29, but I have a hairline that has allowed me to play older characters on stage. Plus, since I have 2 kids, age has caught up quickly.

    Wow. What a travesty. You shouldn’t have let the idiot trolls ruin this for you. What a fuckin’ world we live in. Nope, can’t specify roles! It’s racist! This country has really gone into the shitter in the past 2 years…

  • May 26, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    I wish I could go for a casting session, probably wouldn’t get it, but it would be fun.

  • avgnfan3

    May 26, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    oh man, I just checked the post right now and missed whatever the original post was, then I read these comments about the original being taken down because of racism???? can someone let me know what the problem was ???

  • svengoolie

    May 26, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    @avgnfan3 The problem was a clueless moron talking shit because James specified what races they’re looking for in the casting call.

  • May 26, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    I will tell you what I said, judge all you like:

    I said that personally, I feel that race-specific casting is unnecessary unless there is an artistic reason for it. I know many people disagree with me, but it got blown WAY out of proportion in the last thread, and people started accusing me of calling James a racist. Obviously I need to share some of the blame for responding to people who accused me of saying that. Lesson learned: if you’re misrepresented on the Internet, don’t respond. I will not make that mistake again.

  • svengoolie

    May 26, 2011 at 2:25 pm

    If James put out a casting call and said “Only whites need apply,” because that’s what the characters are, that’s entirely his right. Only, he didn’t say that, did he? You complained on and on about non-whites getting a chance when the only whites he asked for are age 40-60! That makes the vast majority of people that come to this site ineligible. Oh fucking well. Where do the 20 year old white guys go to complain about ageism?

    Regardless of the politically correct bullshit that’s been jackhammered into your head, different races do change things. For example, The Nutty Professor with Eddie Murphy isn’t just a remake, it’s an entirely different movie than the Jerry Lewis original. It’s that way for a reason. Try to get that through your head. This is ART, and who the fuck are you to say who he needs to cast?

  • May 26, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    I’m not going to re-explain my argument because I don’t want to start another flame war, but I did address all of those concerns several times.

    Secondly, I refuse to acknowledge this change of post as “my fault.” James has gotten way more flack from way more fans about way stupider issues than race and has not changed a damn thing. So if James wanted to change something, it’s because he wanted to change something, not because he thought some loser on the Internet was calling him a racist. And if I am the reason this got changed, well I really have to ask: Why the hell does my opinion matter so much to James?

  • BlueAuraEX

    May 26, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Honestly, seeing how James is quite the film-maker, he’s got every right to choose what ethnicitys he wants. Like, Lord of the Rings for a great example. Same thing happened there as well with the casting for The Hobbit. It was just flat-out ridiculous. Anyways, James if I was experienced enough, I’d join this film in a heartbeat. Sadly, I can’t….but! I shall anxiously await how the film turns out, and will watch it (hopefully) on it’s release day. Can’t wait to see it!!

  • AnAddictedGamer

    C’mon James, you didn’t have to change your post just because a few people started accusing you of being racist. Just ignore the tards.

  • May 26, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Man, all you people are fucking nuts. James can’t do shit without someone crying like the bitch they are. All you complainers, false accusers, and whinny brats need to drink from the big cup of shut the fuck up. James, I still say you to fix your site and remove the comments section on your web page so that you and the rest of us don’t have to read all the crap that gets shat from the big fat asses of the idiots who claim to be fans of your work. There are way too many people making far too many idiotic complaints. I knew exactly what you were doing with your original thread, and also for what reason, and all I can say is what you did was NOT wrong. These people saying you’re racist, or saying you shouldn’t make race or gender specific casting calls obviously do NOT know anything and probably should have their brains removed for being so friggin’ stupid. Too bad murder is a crime cause all you whinny bitches should be shot and buried for making such dumb ass remarks, especially you idiots making Nazi remarks.

    May 26, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    and i supposed posting such a long complaint about how people are idiots doesn’t count as “the crap that gets shat from the big fat asses of the idiots”?

    give the guy a break. He changed the description to diffuse a lot of the negative criticism of the previous selective casting (which was rather limited in my opinion, but whatever, it’s been said…) So how come we’re still complaining?

    Oh right, everyone’s too busy flaming and hating.

    James, good luck with the movie, and don’t let the hate get to you!

  • May 26, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    People calling James racist for asking for a person from a specific ethnicity probably never saw any casting call before… James just did it like any producer do when they search for actors. I don’t know at all what the characters are gonna be in the movie, but since it’s video game oriented, let’s imagine he wants to put Link in the movie. He can’t cast a black actor or an asian for the role since the character is supposed to be somebody talll and blonde with a pale skin and blue eyes. He could cast somebody with dark hair and dye his hair blonde, but it’d be hard to take a black person and make the character credible. In a cast call, some characters can be played by anybody no matter the ethnicity, but you can’t cast an Indian boy to play the son of two white people, it’s only logical… Some characters are written to be from a specific type, some aren’t.

    When the movie Willow was in pre-production, it was probably specified in the casting call that they were looking for small people… There’s nothing bad about looking for a certain type of person, it makes the auditions easier.

    I hope me saying this doesn’t dig up old shit here but I hope those people are happy with themselves -_- I just hope James will stick to his own mind and not let that shit ruin his own vision of his own movie. Keep doing it your way James, your real fans are behind you and are looking forward to seeing the movie.

    Really cool you’re asking fans for the roles, James. I can only imagine how excited they would be if they got the role. Being able to meet you would just be awesome. Unfortunately, I am unable to audition. Best of luck to the whole Cinemassacre crew and all of the people who are playing roles the the play. Can’t wait to see the movie!

    Lately people have become crazier, now everybody is calling names for whatever reason.

    I agree with most of the guys here. If the author wrote the script/play/book with a certain type of people then who are we to tell him that he/she is wrong?

    man, let’s get over all this shit and let’s support James who has provide us with hours and hours of entertainment.

    May 28, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I think the whole race thing that happened (which I am assuming is the reason for the casting call change) should be on an episode of “Over Analyzers”. Just saying, might make a good episode.

  • ford3517

    May 28, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    To add to the above, I think it should be in the AVGN movie! I think it would be awesome for the Over Analyzers group to maybe go after AVGN for political correctness or something. In fact I think it would be a good Idea to incorporate YKWBS. Think about it, Over Analyzers could go after AVGN and YKWBS could have a spot on the news reporting it. Then you could have Board James and AVGN do some epic thing like IDK maybe have to go to a video game contest. IDK just spouting Ideas off the top of my head. Maybe AVGN could accidentally travel though dimensions through one of the shitty games to meet himself as other characters including James himself. Perhaps it could Be James that has to set everything right. Look I think I am on to a bunch of good Ideas. What I am talking about, to me at least, would be worthy of big screen and if done right (like I know James has the talent to do) this could be one of the best comedies of all time. Maybe y dreams for AVGN are bigger than what James has. At any rate I can’t wait to see it!!!

    Tyler Graham – for what it’s worth, while I don’t agree with you, I do think what you said was taken out of context and, in some cases, actually pretty much ignored in favour of using you as a scapegoat for political correctness. You probably should have read the situation better and not responded to the accusations, but I can sympathise with you. That said, it’s James’s right to cast who he wants if he thinks that’s who he requires for specific roles, and unfortunately due to the previous thread he may very well have changed those perceptions for the wrong reason. It’s the same thing with Midsummer Murders – everyone was up in arms when the director said he couldn’t see himself hiring black actors regularly, ignoring the fact that it’s set in a rural village in England – places that black people simply do not live, at least not enough to justify shoehorning them into the show just to meet an arbitrary quota. It simply has to be accepted that some roles are ineligible for black or asian actors, just as is the case for white actors, or in fact for ALL actors. Nobody is suitable for every single role. Like I said though, your comment got taken out of context a bit and you have your heart in the right place, so I have no issue with you.

    Also, seph411, about the “I’m a disabled black jew, so hire me or I’ll see you in court” comment you responded to – yes, yes he was joking. It saddens me that someone would have to explain that to you.
