All the single ladies! All the single ladies!

The VH1 show “Single Ladies” needs lots of people to fill in the background of numerous scenes. There’s an open casting call from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Gwinnett Place Mall in the center court.

All positions are paid.

If you’re interested, show up with two forms of I.D. You need to be 18 or older.

Here are some guidelines from casting director Bill Marinella, a 17-year industry veteran, who is working on this project:

- Very chic and trendy “30-somethings” with an upscale, polished look. (Feel to bring those  Chanel bags, Dolce & Gabbana shoes, Prada sunglasses…you get the idea).

- Cool/ funky hairstyles

- Please come relaxed and dress your best to impress our wardrobe department.

- Don’t wear red, white or busy prints or patterns. Choose navy grey, black, olive, tan, maroon, beige or  charcoal instead.

- Dresses, spaghetti straps, and stylish jeans, tops with jewel tones and color.

- Please come in style. Simple jewelry is best, but have your hair and makeup camera ready.

- There’s lenty of free parking. Please bring a pen and headshots if you have them.

- Please know your wardrobe sizes (height, waist, inseam, shoe, etc.).

“Single Ladies” is a comedy drama about Val (Stacey Dash), Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), and April (Charity Shea),  three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. Val is an ambitious aspiring fashion mogul who wants to find a true partner. Keisha is a former video dancer just looking for a rich man to keep her in style. April  has supposedly found the perfect man and the perfect marriage. “Single Ladies” is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.

Casting folks will also have their eyes peeled for folks who might be suitable for background roles on other shows. That’s an open casting call for “all looks” from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We can’t say which shows, exactly, but can tell you that one is a legal drama and the other is about football. We can also tell you that Marinella has done casting for “Drop Dead Diva” and “Necessary Roughness.” You figure it out!

Funny, two of the stars of the show are 40+ and they are looking for “30-somethings” as extras. Aren’t there enough shows about, D&G-carrying, wannabe, single 20 and 30-somethings?

@Funny- I thought the same thing. We’re in Atlanta were the average age for single women is from the mid thirties to mid forties. I know ladies in their forties who never married. AND it was NOT their choice to remain single this long. You may need to reaccess your rules, Stacy and Lisa.

Now that’s a good premise/title. Why call a show “Housewives” when no1 on there is married. Well almost no1. :)

@Funny, there is a thing in Acting called “Age Range”—it’s the range you LOOK LIKE…if you’re 40 and look 16—you can apply for a 16-year old role…this is why 1/2 the cast of Glee is in their mid 20’s playing high school students

say what?
