Saw this on Casting Networks this morning:

"The role does not pay, however all who participate will receive a voucher for a 2-hour Casting Director Commercial Audition Prep Class with seasoned Casting Director Sara Conte."

Now when you look her up, you will see that all she's ever done is Extras Casting.

Synopsis
Distract a guy as he tries to answer questions quickly. Stall him by disrobing and make him look like a fool. How much can a girl distract a guy. Nudity will be involved.

GIRL / Non-Union / Principal / Female / All Ethnicities / 18-30
While the guy is trying to answer questions you will have to distract him by disrobing. The goal is to see how long it takes him to answer very simple questions(i.e. whats the capitol of California). A womans body is more powerful than you think. Be the ultimate guy distraction and turn a man into a babbling fool. Please be advised that you need to be ok with Full Nudity, suggested and implied.
Wardrobe: Dress Nice Casual attire. Sexy lingerie (lace,sheer,garter belts etc.) will help even more with the distraction!
Rate: $200.00
Nudity/Sexual Situations: Disrobing to full nudity to distract the man from answering questions. Use your body to prove men can bend at the knees. No physical contact. Just full frontal, side and rear nudity. PLEASE ONLY SUBMIT IF THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH.
