Calling all Persians for new ‘Jersey Shore’ series
“Jersey Shore” producers just announced an open casting call for The Persian Version—yes, literally—of the popular reality series and are seeking Persian Americans who (and I quote) “rule the Hollywood nightlife and own Beverly Hills.”
What this means is not all Persian-Americans need apply: inquire within only if you are wealthy, ostentatious, “outrageous,” “outspoken” and “proud.”
According to the press release posted on Gawker, Casting Director Doron Ofir (who was born in New York to Israeli parents, according to Wikipedia), “Its time to show the world that being Persian-American is a celebration of the American dream.”
Yes, indeed. Just ask Sam Nazarian, who according to the gossip site RadarOnline.com got more than he bargained for after guest-starring on reality show The Hills.
