Calling all scrawny, pasty white guys: Angelina Jolie wants you in her movie.
Remember when you were like ‘shut up mum, stop oppressing me. I don’t want your stupid dinner.’ and she was like ‘you look like you’ve been in a concentration camp’ – well, send her a smarmy text, your wise decisions are landing you a one-way ticket to fame!
But only if you are a 17-50 year-old very skinny Caucasian male who could portray a prisoner of war in a detention camp in WWII.
Oh and you also need to be willing to get your hair cut, and not have any tattoos.
Any of you still with us? Good.
Because you females out there still have a chance. The casting call also asks for Louise Zamperini “30s-40s; Italian; MUST SPEAK FLUENT ITALIAN; Louis Zamperini’s beloved mother; she constantly prays for him to get his life on track and stop causing so much trouble. She loves him dearly.”
Better get in there quick and you may be close enough to touch Angelina Jolie; but we advise against it, that would be creepy.
Jolie is coming together with Universal Pictures to make this movie, named Unbroken. The film is based on bestselling book “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” by Laura Hillenbrand.
The story centres on Louis Zamperini, a former prisoner of war and Olympic long distance runner. Ten-time Oscar nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins will join the team as director of photography along with Jon Hutman as production designer.

Bring your jazz hands (but check ‘em at the door – it’s a prisoner of war camp, not Gaga’s Alejandro).
