Todd Phillips And Joel Silver Begin Nationwide Talent Search For PROJECT X!

Beaks here...

Ever wanted to be in a raunchy, high-concept studio comedy? Well, if you're over the age of eighteen, look eighteen, and have some semblance of talent, producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver might have a place for you in what is currently titled PROJECT X (which presumably has nothing to do with the 1987 Broderick-and-chimps yarn). Plot details are non-existent at the moment; all we know is that Phillips, Silver and director Nima Nourizadeh want to fill out the the cast of this $12 million production with unfamiliar faces. You could be the next DJ Qualls. If this sounds interesting, head on over to and read up on what you need to do to place your lovely mug in consideration. Here are the basic taping requirements...
1.When taping yourself, frame the picture just above your head to the bottom of the chest so we can see the face clearly. 2. Next you will ‘SLATE’. Please write your name boldly on a piece of paper and hold it in front of you -- make sure the letters are big enough for us to see the spelling of your name and how to contact you. Shoot a few seconds of video back enough so you can see yourself head to toe. Next, zoom in and tell us your name, age, and height. Please say these clearly, looking into the camera. 3. NEXT, TAPE YOURSELF DOING ONE OF THE FIVE THINGS LISTED BELOW. KEEP YOUR SELECTION UNDER THREE MINUTES: • Tell us your most embarrassing story. • Tell us your craziest party story. • Tell us about the riskiest or most daring thing you've ever done. • If you wanted to impress someone at a club, show us how you would dance. • Show us the one thing that you do that makes your friends laugh. 3.You are now ready to digitize and compress your video for uploading to ActorCast. Please download and follow the instructions for uploading your video and go to when you are ready to submit.
According to Mikey Fleming, Phillips and co. will not be sending out finished scripts, which leads me to believe this might not be your typical college raunchfest. Or maybe it is, and these guys are just doing a masterful job of drumming up publicity. Phillips is on a roll right now, so I'm intrigued either way.

    by Continentalop

    Are you guys going to do a obit for Dede Allen? She definitely deserves one.

    by xcornealiousx

    I was really looking forward to another Project X with T Phillips at the helm. I mean, this is the world of the reboot/remake!

    do you really need to see a Dede Allen R.I.P.!! headline on AICN, followed by a shallow story from Harry where he talks about the editor of Bonnie and CLyde like he knew her except for the part where he says "though I didn't know her," followed by a bunch of R.I.P. posts from sycomphants that have never heard of her before she died? Read it somewhere else dude, this isn't the place for it.<P> In other news, to switch to all exclamation point format. <P>

    For a supposed movie site, I find it strange that no one has mentioned the passing of one of the most important figures from the New Hollywood movement.

    Anytime Todd Philips makes a movie from now on...

    by MaxTheSilent

    ...Collider is contractually obliged to run an additional 250 articles referencing THE HANGOVER. Anyone who has been to that site in the last year knows what I'm talking about.

    your most embarrassing truths and stupidest behaviours will become part of a giant reality TV movie hoax. <p> kids, if you want to be an actor- don't do this sort of shit. It will bury any hope you ever have.

  • April 20, 2010, 5:16 a.m. CST

    this makes me so angry

    by mynamesdan

    talk about taking advantage of the young and hopeful <p> this is the oldest trick in the book

    seriously- this is not cool.

  • April 20, 2010, 7:30 a.m. CST

    AICN should pull this 'story'

    by ATARI

    Young people, don't fall for this. Once you upload something, it is out there for all to see. Doesn't matter if it's shit like this, or facebook, embarrassing stuff will follow you around for life. Think before you upload, and then don't.

  • April 20, 2010, 7:46 a.m. CST

    pulling the story would just bury the motive

    by mynamesdan

    AICN, i love you, but please don't tell me you're falling for this shit. Expose this for the mean-spirited scam that it is.

  • April 20, 2010, 7:49 a.m. CST

    Beaks, I'm sorry. Please, just do the right thing.

    by mynamesdan

    Amend this story with at least a caveat. People will fall for this. <p> Pranking people is fun to observe but you can't feel good for the stupid people who are going to fall for this and then have their stupidity converted into profit for Todd Philips.

  • April 20, 2010, 8:09 a.m. CST
