Showoffs, whiners, and misunderstood artists longing for exposure should clear their Saturday calendar: From noon-8 p.m. Dec. 10, MTV execs are holding a casting call for the The Real World: London at the Omni-Shoreham Hotel in D.C. MTV begins filming the London show in January 1995, but the network is still seeking hyper-hip 18-to-24-year-olds who have a compelling reason to be in London next year, and, much more important, long to flaunt their insecurities and hold tiresome, pseudo-profound conversations in front of television cameras. According to U.S. Casting Director Laura Folger, D.C. auditioners must complete an application, submit a photo, and sit for a brief interview with an MTV staffer. The network will hold a preliminary callback on Sunday to videotape promising candidates, but aspiring Pucks shouldn’t get their hopes up: Folger is seeking only “three or four” real Americans for the show, and she’s already seen thousands of applicants in Omaha, New York, Boston, Atlanta, North Carolina, and Memphis.
