Last week, an L.A. production company sought obese toddlers. This week, The Sorcerer's Apprentice seeks a one-armed child willing to forgo his prosthetic for a shot at fame, $144, and meeting Nicholas Cage. Welcome to our awkward casting couch.
This Craigslist New York ad purports to be the product of Grant Wilfley Casting, which is indeed a real casting agency. The Sorcerer's Apprentice is indeed a real movie that appears to be in post-production, but maybe they're reshooting some of those critical one-armed kid scenes?
What a peculiar day it will be in the Grant Wilfley Casting office when they go through dozens of photos of child amputees posing for the camera with their prosthetics off. Such is the glamorous life of a casting agent.
Here's The Sorcerer's Apprentice's trailer. Feel free to imagine the one-armed child of your choice stealing these scenes.
