Send In The Clowns! THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Wants Clowns, Mimes & Magicians

Send In The Clowns! THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Wants Clowns, Mimes & Magicians

The latest casting call for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is seeking anyone, male or female, with past experience as a clown, mime or magician. Do you have have what it takes?

Before you look at the casting call, I want you all to jog your memory. If you remember in July, director Marc Webb told The Hollywood Reporter that it would be difficult to create an original adversary for Spidey, but if he did...
    “I do think it would be tricky to totally invent a major villain, but if I did that it would be The Mime. My big contribution would be a villain called The Mime. That’s a joke, by the way. A joke.

Now as he said above, it's "a joke," but perhaps this casting call for clowns, magicians, and especially French mimes is to put an inside joke into the film. Just a thought.

Or, let's go really outside the box, and assume Marc Webb wants to explore the plot from the Marvel comic book, Peter Parker: Spider-Man #38, which was, "Spidey faces his fiercest, and quietest, foes: murderous Mimes!" (Image on the right)

Shoot Date - 4/1/2013 THRU 4/15/2013

    Special / Male or Female / All Ethnicities
    Ages: 18 - 50
    Grant Wilfley Casting is seeking: Men & Women with REAL/ PROFESSIONAL Clown, Mime, Magician experience & ability. Regular Clowns & French Mimes are great! You must have your own costume, accessories, make-up, etc. We are looking for people who can show up ready to go. If you do NOT fit this breakdown please do not submit, it is a waste of everyone's time!

If you have any interest, just remember to "email a recent picture and contact info to [email protected] Write the role for which you are submitting in the subject line of your email.

Or could simply be they need clowns and whatnot for a parade scene.

Totally called it, guys. This movie's gonna be a good one. I expect it'll be the best Spidey film to date. I'm hoping Green Goblin will appear at the end as well, but we'll have to wait and see.

Check the article I wrote:

Maybe it's a heist at the start of the film for comedic purposes

Dude, that gif.... lol.

Mysterio! PLEASE !
Sanderman - 3/23/2013, 3:18 PM
people will connect this to something big, like Mysterio but then it usually ends with something small. I could see this being used for maybe a background at a carnival, birthday party, etc.
TheIconicMan - 3/23/2013, 3:30 PM
I hate this movie so much!
aduder - 3/23/2013, 3:32 PM
Bit ageist..what if you're 51? I shall be writing to the local authorities on this matter.

Hey murderous mimes would be cool and maybe this hints at mysterio? Maybe the guy in the black suit Webb tweeted was mysterio? Idk but I like the killing mimes idea
JDUKE25 - 3/23/2013, 4:57 PM
@Jollem for sure that pic. I really want to see Mysterio on the big screen. Idk about in this one, but sometime for sure

Clown 9....just saying.

I'm thinking this dude might be Quentin Beck in the movie.

Did someone say magic?!

When I saw this headline, Mysterio popped into my head immediately because of this:

I wonder if someone is gonna say that TASM2 is being like another franchise also because clowns are gonna be in it........
Cerebro - 3/23/2013, 9:45 PM
where's Tim Curry when you need him.
Robert - 3/24/2013, 1:37 AM
That's easy. Our politicians would be perfect for those parts. They're all clowns. They're mimes, because they speak, yet say nothing. They're magicians, because they're full of illusions.
DrDoom - 3/24/2013, 7:20 AM
Webb.... if you use Mysterio.... I will find you.

Don't you dare touch Mysterio. Sure, I know I'll have to put up with two more Spider-Man movies from you....

Red Triangle gang?
SpectacularJoSh - 3/24/2013, 8:02 AM
They need clowns? 18-50? I wonder if Christopher Nolan is available.
TheIconicMan - 3/24/2013, 8:38 AM
@Superior Absolutely. But please, return it intact.
TheIconicMan - 3/24/2013, 8:40 AM

Nolanites throwing rock at you in 3, 2, 1..
