It's True. Moby and Wayne Coyne, of the Flaming Lips, are shooting naked people and many more in Downtown Los Angeles on August 10th. On August 5th, Moby posted to his site the need for some unusual extras to show up for an August 6th casting. He sure doesn't give people a lot of time to contact their "S&M gimp rhythmic gymnast" friends.
Here's what Moby requested:
a drunk king: guy with beard age 35-50
s&m gimp rhythmic gymnast: a rhythmic gymnast dressed in a leather s and m gimp costume complete with mask with a zipper mouth. someone who is good at the ribbon and stick thing. preferably a male if such a thing exists. if not a women or girl with a flat chest.
8 rollerskating ghosts: any gender. roller skaters not rollerbladers, ideally people who can roller dance and do a choreographed routine, perhaps a roller dance crew if such a thing exists. ideally people who also would be ok with taking off their costume and get naked but not obligatory rollerskating dance ability takes preference.
12 goth choir members: in their 20‘s mixed sex and ethnicity. don't have to be able to sing but need to lip synch and be able to move with a little it of rhythm as the choir will move their hands in unison. they should be goth. ideally they are comfortable with nudity.
2 obese bearded bikers in red speedos: pretty self explanatory there. need to be able to ride a motorcycle, ideally they have their own.
20 random party goers who are comfortable with nudity: all ages. freaky fun, people who are cool with dancing and getting naked. existing costumes and skills a plus like hula hoopers, crunk dancers various random talents, jugglers etc, trick rope twirlers, stuff of that weird talent show speciality nature a plus. comfortable with nudity is the main requirement here.
a punk rock brass brand: maybe this pre- exist in la? like a steam punk anarchistic brass band?
Maybe you still have time to head over to the casting if you're in LA.
Moby's upcoming album Innocents is due for release October 2013.
