Another Reality Show Participant Makes a Straight to DVD Movie

I get a bit sassy sometimes when reality shows refer to their participants as "cast members". I am a struggling actress (the secret is out!) so I have issue with these reality whores ending up in movies and television. Because of "Laguna Beach" and its even faker spin-off "The Hills," the reality star to actor ratio is going to get much higher. Why, you ask? Well, I have a sneaking feeling that these "cast members" are actually "cast." Do you think it is a coincidence that LC is dating the Prince of Malibu?

On a reality casting note the Hollywood Reporter is saying that "Brian Drolet (MTV "The Hills") is set to appear in "Burial at Sea," an indie teen horror movie being directed by Joe Knee. Drolet will play a pro skateboarder who unknowingly hires the cursed captain of a possessed yacht for an expedition to shoot the ultimate skateboard video. Drolet is repped by Metropolitan and Cole Payne Management."

Possessed yacht? This has straight to video written all over it. This guy seemed like such a tool on "The Hills." At least he looks good with his shirt off.

An interesting link for those dudes out there who like big ole reality TV boobies. Robin from the current "Duel" challenge series takes it all off for the cameras. [IDontLikeYouInThatWay]

I'm not an actor myself, but it really grates my cheese too when they refer to the hacks as "cast members" .. the only exception I can think of is Jacinda from The Real World, who gave a great performance in "The Last Kiss"
