Even if you're not plugged in enough to reach the A-list talent you'd love to attach to your passion project, Craigslist's virtual casting office always offers hope to those who aren't afraid to dream big: after all, you never know when a well-connected agent, manager, or producer will accidentally stumble across your ad while searching for someone to grant their own seemingly crazy wishes. And if you have tens of thousands of dollars to help motivate your potential middlemen to lend a hand, all the better:
*** $25,000.00 commission *** I am doing a 90 minute motivational DVD I need someone to bring one of the names below to participate for a day to read a 3 page speech in front of the camera, pay to the actor is $30,000.00 and your commission is $25,000.00 cash.

A quick background check seems to reveal that the poster's pitch might be slightly less shady than it sounds; at least there's a website and some sample work to reference. [Ed.note—It's a trap!] And, truth be told, there are enough names on that wishlist who probably wouldn't turn up their nose at the prospect of an easy paycheck—we're looking at you, Jeremy Pivon and Robert DiNero—that they might be able to generate enough competition to haggle the talent down from that original offer.
