Steelers and Redskins Fans Wanted

The new Emeril Green show airing on Planet Green is looking for Redskins fans to appear on the show to cook tailgating food with Chef Emeril Lagasse. If you are interested, send an email to foodshowcasting@gmail.com and be sure to include the following: name, address, occupation, age, and a little bit of info on what your current tailgating meal includes. I was told that the show is looking for Redskins fans because the show is taped "in the DC area so we need someone who is local." Regardless, if you’re a Steelers fan or a fan of another NFL team, you have my approval to send them an e-mail.

Meanwhile, Mosser Casting is seeking Steelers fans as extras for the short film Tommy and Me on Saturday, August 9 at Heinz Field. There is no pay, but they will have BYO tailgate afterwards. However, you can’t just show up; you need to contact Ray Werner, the creator of the film, in advance. Ray needs your name, and you need information of where to go, how to dress (lots of black and gold), where to park (free) and exact time (early afternoon). Contact Ray at raywerner@mac.com or visit tommyandme.com. Since I mentioned above that Steelers fans should contact Planet Green, I guess it’s only fair that Redskins fans in Pittsburgh could contact Ray.

In case you were wondering here is the premise of Tommy and Me:

The story shows the compassion of the people, merchants in the Strip for an elderly homeless guy named Tommy, who is befriended by a young guy who works at Mike's Stuff (Mike Feinberg's). In the story, Tommy, who has a great white beard, is nicknamed Steelers Santa and becomes an icon of the Steelers Nation. The story unfolds from there.

The film is dedicated to Operation Safety Net who help care for the homeless in Pittsburgh.
