How would you like a role on Mad Men?
Since today marks the release of the first season DVD set for Mad Men, I thought I'd pass this little bit of news on to fans of the show: they're holding a contest and the winner gets a walk-on role on the show!
Now, this isn't one of those easy "send an e-mail" or "mail in a coupon" type of contest. You're gonna have to work a little bit for this one. You have to go to the link above and print out a monologue from the show and film yourself doing it. Then you upload the video to AMC's web site. The winner gets a walk-on in a future episode and a free trip to Los Angeles.
The scenes you get to choose from include Don's monologue about happiness from the pilot, Roger's "ass" confession to Joan from episode 12; Pete's direct marketing rant from episode 4; one of Betty's talks to her therapist from episode 2; Peggy's scene about life being unfair in episode 12; and Joan's workplace instructions to Peggy in the pilot.
Not sure if you have to dress up as the character in question, but it couldn't hurt. Don't forget the slicked back hair, girdle, and/or cigarette, whichever is appropriate.
