4198 wklink The script for Fargo has characters consistently refer to Steve Buscemi's character as "funny looking." When preparing for the role, Steve asked what type of makeup or prosthetics they had in mind. "Umm... no, we're good, Steve."
1336 jpropaganda Hi! I'm an actor. Fat guy with beard. I get called in for everything from "Hipster 2", "guy with beard", "overweight jogger", "fat bar patron", etc. It takes all shapes and sizes. Though I'm still pretty bummed I wasn't cast in that Geico commercial with the peasants in medieval times.
2614 steeldeal80 Reminds me of the story about Home Alone, where the character was an ugly girl (Buzz’s girlfriend shown in a picture frame) and so they needed to cast one. The producers decided it would be too cruel to have a girl do it, so they had the art director’s son dressed up like a girl. Made for a hilarious photo.

1284 VidE27 Reminded me of this: Helen Morehouse: What were you thinking?  Casting Director: Well, you said you wanted gritty. In other word... ugly.  Helen Morehouse: I wanted Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island" ugly, not Cornelius on "The Planet if Apes" ugly. TV ugly, not... ugly ugly.  Moe: I've been called ugly, pug ugly, fugly, pug fugly, but never ugly ugly
1020 maxxlion As a former “fat guy” actor, I’ll go into some detail. 1. For commercials, yes, I audition for the fat guy or gross guy spots. The sweet spot for a fat guy hovers around 220-320lbs. Lowerend for commercials upperend for film/tv. 2. Casting just wants you to be right for the role. If you come in, hyper specific, like 300lbs and greasy, casting is going to be really excited that you’re right for the role. 3. Usually the fat guy is the butt of the jokes, but if you’re professional, show up on time, know your lines, people love working with you, no matter what size or look. 4. Yes, I lived the life of a 250lb man. It was easy. Eat anything, never work out, be lazy. It affected me tho, so I dropped down to 180. WHICH, has made booking jobs more challenging! I’m now in a different category with amazing actors or actors who have credits for 30 years. Not to mention, everyone is like, where’s the fat guy? 5. I actually gained 20lbs for a role, because i wasnt fat enough. Hollywood wants the stereotypical gross fat guy. You gotta deliver, because someone else will!

879 joosier I used to work for a restaurant with a catering business on the side. We got the contract for a TV commercial shoot and we had to show up every morning at 5am at a hotel to get the location for that day's shoot. After day four of doing that AND working our regular shifts we were looking a little haggard. My co-worker and I were waiting in the lobby and one of the producers came down the stairs, stopped and looked at us and asked us if we were actors. We replied no, we were just the catering. "Pity", she replied, " I do the casting for America's Most Wanted and we could use people who look like you." and just sauntered away.
