Do You Play Rugby?

AC Casting is looking for male rugby players for a new ad campaign. No acting experience needed! Must be comfortable in the front/second row of a scrum. Very nice fee if chosen.

Who we’re after: Guys should be aged 20s-40s. We’re looking for characterful, interesting guys who look like they play a lot of rugby – crooked noses, weather beaten faces are all great.

They should be confident guys, up for a laugh who aren’t camera shy.

They should have a Southern Irish accent, we’re particularly looking for some guys who have a Munster accent.

We’re also looking for a woman aged 55+ so if anyone’s mam/aunt/friend would like to apply with them, let us know.

The casting will be held in Dublin city centre next Wednesday August 30 in the evening so that people can come from work. There will be a possible recall on Friday, September 1 and you would need to be available for the shoot which will be one day on either September 5, 6 or 7.

How to apply: Email and put ‘Rugby’ in the subject line.

Make sure you include:

1. A few pics of yourself. Preferably a full length shot and one where we can see your face clearly.
2. Let us know what rugby position you play.
3. A bit about you – if you have any acting/performance experience let us know, though this is not necessary.
4. Where your accent is from.
5. A contact mobile number.

As is always the case, time is tight and spaces are limited so do get in touch asap.

      The various Cork accents would be a subset of Munster accents, in turn a subset of Southern Irish, I’d imagine

            It’s true, yiz boo boos. Though most vestiges of Cork have disappeared from my accent over the years (twasn’t that strong in the first place, though I guess most people think their own accent isn’t strong) and now it’s only blatantly obvious when I’ve had a few scoops.

            My Dublin accent is at its best when I’m in a taxi. I’m like a young Ronnie Drew.

            Que? A Munster accent would be one of the Munster accents. It would also be one of the Irish accents.

            I’m saying there’s no umbrella Munster accent. Just a collection of accents within Munster. Splitting hairs for no reason.

      Something for worming cattle? Wait no that’s Gaelic football. Rugby adverts are always beer or chelsea tractors.

      I have always been rather partial to the Cork boys in my limited experience the Irish male
