Dear Mr. Brennan, Mr. Falchuk and Mr. Murphy (or anyone who knows them or is related to someone who knows them who can introduce me to them),
I was going to write about auditioning for Glee before I even heard about the open call for auditions for next season. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear that you will actually be holding auditions. I have a great idea that I wanted to run by you (not that your ideas are not great, please don’t get me wrong). Here is my idea: How about hiring me for a role on Glee, or at least an audition? (You didn’t see that one coming, did you?)
Ok, I know what you are thinking: why me? Well, let me tell you. (First, let me think about it for a bit.) I guess being a fan of the show doesn’t cut it. (I even drudged up an old headshot of mine for your review - doesn’t everyone who lives in L.A. have one on file? It’s not thaaaaat old, by the way.) So, here are the top ten reasons I came up with why I should be on Glee.
1) I met many members of the cast on a few occasions and we got along. (That’s a plus, right?)
And I know the drill, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you.” So I won’t be calling you (because that would just be stalking at this point), but I will wait for your call or email or text message or IM or Facebook request or Twitter direct message…
By the way, I even have my audition mashup ready to go: Bette Midler’s “The Rose” and Depeche Mode’s “Blasphemous Rumors.”
