Might want to realize what a “spoof news site” is, first.


8 Christine January 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm

I just went back and read the homepage of that site ,they do a good job “blending in” :)


9 Panda January 6, 2012 at 2:10 am

They really do. It’s why I usually check the “about” pages for news sites before I buy into anything they say, haha :D


10 Renee J. January 5, 2012 at 10:47 am

I wish I could audition but I have classes and I really want to audition. Extra income din yun tapos may bonus pa na Hollywood actors/actresses on the side. Hahaha!

I don’t know what they are talking about, the casting call is posted on many other websites, here’s the casting person who sent me the info:

If it is a hoax, I didn’t know about it….


19 Christine January 5, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Alright, I just contacted that website and explained that f the casting call is not legit, I was not aware. I was sent the information from Jha Briones who also sent the information to several other websites. We are contacted frequently by casting agencies who ask us to post information about an casting call so I had no reason to think that this case would be any different.

If the casting call is not correct, it is not because our site was creating a hoax, but rather because we were given inaccurate information.

I love how people just say things without contacting the source, someone could have emailed me before accusing us of creating a hoax, ugh!

Here’s another legit news agency with the same info we have :
