Hollywood Is Horrified

Hollywood Is Horrified

By Alan Gray

It takes guts to cast a dead body guy as a show's star.

Ed Meyer and his latest project, the cameo laden comedic feature film Horrorween have surprised Hollywood with an unbelievable amount of enthusiasm from the acting community.

With just shy of 18,000 submitted headshots and resumes as of today, not to mention hundreds of A and B list star agents asking for roles for clients, Horrorween has garnered incredible interest among the acting community, usually only reserved for studio films.

Meyer's pick for a star has stirred a lot of emotions and created quite a "Hollywoodien" buzz in the film community. Mr. Chuck Lamb's, aka- the Dead Body Guy, morbidly comic talent will be showcased over and over again in this horror spoof.

The trailer for Horrorween is to be filmed Saturday, March 4th, at the Hollywood Center Studios Stage 12. On March 5th, between 11am and 3pm, an open-casket (open casting) call will take place at The Hollywood Museum, at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland in Hollywood. An open casting call is rarely seen in Hollywood these days, but even further, an open-casket call is a first. For details visit Horrorween's website at: www.horrorween.com

Stars who have committed to star in this film are:
Bill Daily (Newhart, I Dream of Jeannie)
Mike Muscat (Terminator 2)
Irwin Keyes (Wrestlemaniac)
Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead)
Ivy Iacono (MTV, Jimmy Kimmel Live)
Erik Estrada (Chips)

....with more stars coming on board daily.

Stars in negotiation, include: William Shatner, Cindy Margolis, Candice Michelle, and many more.

Ed Meyer, a graduate of Harvard University, has been behind the scenes in Hollywood and New York, assisting Independent Film, Television and Commercial producers and directors for almost 30 years.
