Orange County Choppers casting/hiring for on- and off-camera job

A new show following Orange County Choppers and Paul Teutul, Sr., is casting for someone who will actually be hired to work for the company off-camera, but will also appear on the new series.

That’s an interesting approach to casting–or at least, it’s interesting to see a show looking to hire someone to both work and be on television. On some workplace shows, it’s often obvious that the producers have brought in some kind of ringer to create drama.

The casting notice, from Pilgrilm Studios (producers of American Chopper and shows such as Top Shot and Ghost Hunters) says the job is New York-based and will begin at the end of May. It also says:

…”the team needs some fresh blood — someone who will work alongside Paul Senior, running the shop and helping to build the best custom motorcycles in the world.

This is a full-time job working with O.C.C. on and off camera.

It doesn’t matter what your specialties are in the motorcycle world. As long as you KNOW the world of choppers, are outgoing, fun and think you can withstand Senior’s onslaught when he’s angry, then we want to hear from you!”
