THR readers today likely took notice of a full-page, back cover ad trumpeting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to possibly maybe rub shoulders with Hollywood's foremost detonative dreamweaver, Michael Bay—plus the entire cast and crew of Transformers 2!—at The Happy Ending Bar and Restaurant in Hollywood. As if that wasn't reason enough to swing by, the entire event is a fundraiser benefiting the Spondylitis Association of America. It all comes to you courtesy of the Bay-loving folks at TransformNate.com. Who are they? What's Spondylitis? Aren't happy endings for Thai massage parlors? All good questions. Let's start with the first: TransformNate.com is...well, let's Nate explain!
I created this web page with one objective in mind: to be cast in a roll in the upcoming movie 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'.
I am aware of the difficult process of film making and what steps are taken to fill roles in such an epic film, so let me say this; I am not looking for a lead part but simply a credited role, big or small. I am also not looking for any hand-outs, but more so an opportunity to work and succeed.
So Nate is not all that different from anyone else walking around the streets of Los Angeles: He's a guy with a dream. Nate therefore has harnessed the power of the internets to broadcast his hopes of taking part in Giant Fucking Robot movie history—a tactic which could very well win him the recently vacated role of Man Eating Hamburger. And if, along the way, Nate might be able to help some spondylitic children, well, then—hey. Why not pay it forward? We'll see Nate, Michael, Optimus, and the rest of you at Happy's Thursday night!
