Real World Hollywood cast details revealed

Additional details about the cast of The Real World Hollywood have been revealed. During an improv performance earlier this month, the cast was identified by their apparent stage names–Brittini, Will Gill, Kimberly, Dave Sky, Bri Leigh, Nick B, and Sarah–but now we know their full names, hometowns, ages, and pictures.

The cast members are Kimberly Alexander, 25; Nick Brown, 23; William Gilbert, 25; Greg Halstead, 20; Joey Kovar, 24; David Malinosky, 22; Sarah Ralston, 21; Brittini Sherrod, 22; and Brianna Taylor, 20; according to Vevmo, which has a photo of each cast member and a link more information, including additional pictures and MySpace page links. Mysterious sources “close to production” and “close to the cast” have apparently confirmed its authenticity, and the fact that it matches those who performed indicates that it is likely accurate.

Most of the cast members already have professional head shots or modeling shots, which makes sense since the cast members are all supposed to have entertainment-related career goals.

The list does have nine people for a series with seven people, and that constitutes a mild spoiler (stop reading if your life depends upon being surprised with the outcome): Two cast members, Greg and Joey, left the show, and were replaced with Nick and Brittini, both of whom performed at the December improv show.
