The casting couch meets American Idol in Memphis on Tuesday, August 8th, as auditions are being held for parts in the movie Queen of Media, based on the life of top nationally syndicated radio personality Wendy Williams. The movie is based on her bestseller autobiography, Wendys Got the Heat.
This wont be a standard casting call, however. The casting process, which will take place in 9 cities over the next ten days, will be filmed for television, and, as part of the judging panel, celebrities that will appear in the film will weigh in on the auditioning actors. Up to ten actors will be chosen from each city, and a finale audition will be held in New York City on August 19th, in front of Wendy Williams, for the opportunity to be in her movie.
The auditions will be held at the downtown Memphis Marriott.
