This got buried beneath the stack of legal docs currently devouring my desk, but I'd just hate it if you missed out on Your Big Break: Spike TV, the network for dudes and Star Wars movie marathons and Entourage reruns, is looking for a couple of broheims to host a talk show. Only, it's not yer average talk show, no sir: "The new late-night entry will differ from the typical late-night chatter of movie stars and politicos and will seek out ordinary people doing extraordinary things." You mean, like Real People? Or That's Incredible?

Anyway. Here's what they want, per the Dallas Film Commission's Web site:

Seeking two males (any ethnicity) age 25 - 35. Someone with a likable, regular-guy appeal with inherent comedic talent who is not too slick or host-y.

We want that laid back guy with whom every dude wants to be friends. He drinks beer, loves sports, video games and is unassuming and approachable.

In other words, are you Paul Rudd? If so, get thee to the Hyena's Comedy Club on Mockingbird before 5 today or between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. tomorrow. Look, better you than some high-larious Chris-Chris from Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta or Chicago.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
