Real World begins casting for its 19th season Saturday

The Real World is looking for seven fresh new faces to get drunk, hook up, and wreak havoc on the 19th season of the show. (Look for my extensive interview with the show’s casting director early next week, as interviewing the show’s casting director is all the rage these days.)
