The casting directors of the upcoming Broadway revival of Annie are apparently not only auditioning potential girls for the title and supporting roles in the classic musical on June 12th in NYC, but will also be taking a page out of the Glee handbook and are accepting audition submissions from on-line!
Well, that will certainly open the floodgates for pretty much EVERYONE to audition, don't you think?! Yeesh!
We wouldn't to be the poor intern sitting through all of those videos! LOLz!
In fact, we're surprised they didn't turn the whole process into a reality show!
What do U think?? Do U want to audition for Annie?
The time has come for all you Glee fans to show what you are made of!
Starting today, the official hunt for the next Gleek begins as the show is opening the worldwide web to an opening casting call. Producers of the show have set a MySpace page, in which young hopefuls, ages 16-26, can submit a five minute audition video to be considered for a role in season two of the Fox hit show.
American Idol meets Glee. (Bet it took a real genius over at Fox to come up with this!)

Looks like Billy Corgan is ready to re-start The Smashing Pumpkins with an entirely new line-up, and is holding open auditions to find a new bassist and keyboard player!!
Ginger Pooley, the band's bassist, quit last week to focus on her family, and since Corgan was successful in finding a new drummer last year through an audition process, he's ready to try it again!!
"Although I am heartbroken that Ginger is leaving the group, I really respect her decision to put her family first. I appreciate everything that she has contributed to The Smashing Pumpkins, and I'm proud of her for being such a great musician and friend. We were lucky enough to find drummer Mike Byrne through an open audition process, so why not open the doors again to anyone who might be interested for the bass or keyboard position. As you can see from our past and present, age, race, or a person's background is not an issue. Everyone is truly welcome to audition.”
If you think you have what it takes to be in The Smashing Pumpkins, you can send background information, photos, and performance web links to PumpkinsBass@gmail.com or PumpkinsKeys@gmail.com!!
Only three months after the arrival of their son, Future Zahir, he shared:
"I was scared as sh*t. I was one step away from being married, and I feel like I failed publicly in relationships. Then you want to go back to doing music, to what you know. And if the people didn't accept you again, the one thing you feel like you can fall back on, it walked away from you. You feel like it's over."
And the response to his album, Honest, didn't help his situation either.
