CBS holding 15 Big Brother 9 casting calls over the next three weeks

With Big Brother 9 set to debut in the early part of 2008, CBS is launching a series of 15 open casting calls for cast members.

The casting notices specifically mention the ninth season, and thus the possiblity that the show could feature celebrities seems to be less likely now–unless the house will be stocked with both real people and whatever D-list celebrities would subject themselves to the expereince.

In a casting notice specifically for Sunday’s open call in New York, producers say they want “attractive males and females ages 21 to 60, must be fun and outgoing and energetic. ‘characters’ a must, and NY accents are a plus !” Capitalization and proper sentence punctuation is apparently unnecessary.

Open calls start Saturday in Columbia, SC, and Los Angeles, and will be held in Manhattan, Chicago, Brooklyn, Kansas City, Charlotte, Hillsobor, Ore., Atlanta, Columbus, Ohio, Scottsdale, Boston, Broomfield, Colo., and Tampa. They all take place between this Saturday and Dec. 8.
