If you love Gandalf, the Hobbit, and the whole Middle Earth culture created by author J.R.R. Tolkien, and you're "funky-looking," the producers of a new TV show are ready to make you a star.

A New Zealand talent agency is on the lookout for actors to take part in a new Lord of the Rings TV show to be filmed in New Zealand. The only requirement is you need to have some odd or distinctive physical features. And the flexibility to spend some time Down Under, mate. You'll need to have "working rights for New Zealand, be living in Auckland New Zealand, or be a New Zealand resident," according to a Facebook ad.

BGT is a top talent agency in New Zealand and they're quite specific about some of the physical oddities they're looking for:

  • Overbite
  • Facial burns
  • Long limbs
  • Deep cheekbones
  • Lines on your face
  • Acne scars
  • Ears that stick out
  • Bulbous or interesting noses
  • Small eyes or big eyes
  • Deformities
  • Skinny faces
  • Missing limbs

Sounds like an average crowd at the State Fair. And not just in the sideshow.

If you know someone who fits any of these descriptions, have them send a photo and phone number to extras@BGT.nz. And, hey, if you're "funky-looking" but confined to to our area, maybe we could put together a local version of the show--or at least have a cool bar night.
