casting

from an audition notice.

This is what I always get called in for:
Example: Janeane Garofalo. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR STRONG IMPROV-BASED ACTRESSES WHO CAN BRING MORE TO THE CHARACTER THAN WHAT IS WRITTEN ON THE PAGE! PEOPLE WHO CAN BRING THESE INANIMATE OBJECTS TO LIFE!

Read:
Our script sucks and we know it! Get people who will make it sound better than it really is!

I prefer this to the alternative, which is:
WHAT WE WROTE IS GOLD, SOLID GOLD, and if it sounds pathetic and completely lame, it's just your fault for not channeling the pure genius of our words.
