Have movie star dreams?
Looking for Stars, a new talent contest that will air on Starz, follows 200 aspiring actors (out of the 5 zillion out there) trying to make it big. The winner lands a role in the upcoming Nic Cage/Julianne Moore film Next.
The 14-episode contest, which the channel has dubbed a “micro-series” because each show is only 10 minutes long, debuts on June 19.
The film Next also stars Jessica Biel and is directed by Lee Tamahori. If you don't remember, Lee was the cross-dressing fella arrested for prostitution in February. I bet that set is a barrel of laughs.
Meanwhile, I think a better prize would be if actresses competed to marry Nic Cage instead of appearing in one of his films. He's been with his current squeeze -- Alice Kim -- quite awhile now. (Two years?) It's about time he started the search for wifey number four.
