Zombie Mud Runs: Your Ticket to A-List Stardom?posted on 10/29/14
Can it be true? Is the cat out of the bag on this one? Are major producers really going to Zombie Mud Runs scouting for high velocity survivors who can get down and dirty and escape undead danger by the skin of their teeth? According to a recent article in The Island Times, anonymous sources say it’s true! The article refers to certain “industry types” spotted “hanging out” at Zombie Mud Runs all across the continental US, checking out who’s who in the winner’s circle of the Zombie Mud Runs.
Too Good to be True?
Naysayers say “No way, there’s no chance Hollywood movers and shakers are looking for actors at Messy fun runs, get Real!” but it should be noted that zombie mud runs and fun runs have grown significantly in the past few years. The sheer number of extras needed to pull off a proper zombie horde is almost endless. Since mud runs settings fit the look of many zombie dramas, these could easily serve as clandestine casting calls for zombie and horror related media!
Get The Mud Out of Your Eyes
Some race officials themselves are denying these easy street to stardom claims. Race Organizer for the Zombies Alive! Fun Mud Run, Beth McGhetty, said “The point of the race is to have fun, don’t let these ridiculous rumors ruin what’s supposed to be just something people to have a laugh, it makes it a competition, we’re just here to have fun!” Is that right Beth? Then who’s this parked at the last Zombies Alive! Fun Mud Run?
How Can I Be Noticed?
Our insider sources tell us the best way to be noticed by Tinseltown Bigwigs who are on the prowl for “Fresh meat” for the big shows is by showing what you’re capable of. You’ve got to display your acting range, so scream and cry when you’re scared! Laugh loud when something’s funny so they can hear your beautiful voice from inside their limousine. Before the mud run, get your hair done, your nails did, your nose hairs plucked–treat it like a job interview! Everyone else will be there just to exercise and have a “good time” but now you know the real score, you’ll stand out like a sore thumb to those Hollywood types and land that leading role for sure!
