Casting Call: John Oliver Needs Flying Penises for VDay Show, Tina Fey Film Seeks Seductive Priest


John Oliver must be planning something very romantic for his HBO show this Sunday night. Given that it’s Valentine’s Day, Oliver has a put out a call for “Flying Men” — white and around five foot five inchesĀ  “These
men will be wearing large penis costumes and flying around set,” the casting call reads. “No previous flying experience is required.”

Meanwhile, the Paramount movie “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” starring Tina Fey is going shoot some kind of non union promotional film next week. They need a “seductive ice cream eating priest.” The actor “must own own his own priest costume.” Three to five hours work pays $200 not including ice cream and dry cleaning of the priest outfit.
