Home Celebrity Casting Call for Tom and Katie Short Comedy Satire Film

I’m surprised it took this long. Jest.com, which is sort of like Funny or Die, has sent out a casting call for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise lookalikes. They’re planning a short film parody of the Cruise-Holmes divorce story, tentatively titled “Suri.” The listed casting director is Dan Siegel. Jest is owned by College Humor was started by Ricky van Veen and Josh Abramson in 1999, and sold to Barry Diller’s IAC a few years ago. There’s no word yet on the script or the director. And so far, Suri herself has not been cast. Neither have any of the other potential characters but you can only imagine who else these funny folks will throw into the mix– maybe even Rupert Murdoch, as he Tweets his anti-Scientology messages! By the way, the movie is non-union. Each actor will get a rate of $110. The shoot is set for Friday. Expect to see it go viral on Jest.com by next week.
