It’s time to get real. Or at least audition to be real.

If it’s always been your ambition to be one of the hot -- and hot under the collar -- roommates on MTV’s Real World (28 seasons and counting), you got good weather for it.

The producers of the show are holding an open casting call on Saturday (April 27) at McFadden’s on North 3rd in Northern Liberties. The operative hours are 10 AM to 5 PM, but you may want to arrive on the earlier side because when The Real World opens its doors in Philly, it gets zooish. The line usually wraps around the corner a few times.

There are some ground rules. You must have turned 21 by the end of this calendar year. There are cosmetic considerations as well: You must “appear” to be between the ages of 20 and 24. Bring a recent picture of yourself (you won’t get it back) and a valid form of picture ID. And lively up yourself. Real World ain’t lookin’ for no bland roomies.

And where is the show being shot? You’ll find out when you get there (if you’re lucky enough to make the cut)..
