From an official Girls casting notice posted to Backstage.com, we now know what “hipster” typecasting looks like:
Seeking—Hipster Types: male and female, 18-30s, all ethnicities, all types, specifically seeking people with tattoos, piercings, colored hair, and unique looks. Young Adult (ages 18-29), Thirties (ages 30-39). Caucasian/White, African-American/Black, Latin/Hispanic/South American, Asian, Native American (!!! — Ed. Note), European, Middle Eastern, Indian/South Asian, Other.
Truth be told, I really hate going after low-hanging fruit like such as this— but “Europeans”?!? I just about shot Zywiec out of my nose reading that corker. Perhaps “Girls” will spot a few when they film in “Little Poland” tomorrow? That’s right, Greenpointers. Tomorrow. May 18th, 2012.
The areas impacted are:
- Manhattan Avenue between Java and Green Street and
- India Street between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.
The tow trucks show up at 2:00 p.m. Why not leave a curricula vitae and a headshot on your dashboard, Garden Spotters?
