Glee now casting for new roles, reality series

Fox’s drama Glee has begun its search for new cast members, which will be filmed for a new reality series.

To apply online, you have to be 16 to 26 “and not subject to a current recording contract or other services contract that would prohibit you from rendering exclusive and/or first position services,” according to the audition materials.

You also still actually have a functional MySpace login, which may be the most restrictive part of the application, because who’s used MySpace in the last few years except people who enjoy seizures with their profiles? (Of course, they have the same parent company.)

Anyway, pros or amateurs may apply, and have to record a one-minute personal statement and a performance of a pre-selected song, some of which are listed here and include “Gold Digger” by Kanye West, “Can’t Fight This Feeling” by Reo Speedwagon, “Don’t Rain on my Parade” by Barbra Streisand, and “Keep Holding On” by Avril Lavigne.

Applications are due April 26, and production will begin this summer, around July 1.
