MTV's 'Real World' to host a casting call here

Bunim-Murray Productions will be in Philly on Saturday, April 2 for a casting call for the 26th season of The Real World.

It will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fado Irish Pub, 15th and Locust Streets.

Casting people are looking for the usual: "Characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds" as well as "anyone with a great personality and a willingness to share their life with the world. Most of all, we are looking for surprising and unusual life stories that have yet to be told on television."

Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo ID. You must be over the age of 18 to apply, and appear to be between the ages of 18 and 24.

For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email. Go to for details.

The Real World taped its 15th season in Old City from April to September 2004.
