Credible information reaching GhanaCelebrities.Com indicates that some A-list actors in Ghana have flopped at the ongoing auditions for the ‘The Spirited Actor’ – The Search For Africa’s Next Hollywood Star project at the National Theatre in Accra.
The names of the A-list actors will not be revealed now until the excerpts of the auditions start airing on Viasat1, the official TV station for the project.
According to our source at the audition, the flopped actors/actresses quickly had to approach the local representatives of the project to give them a second chance.
When refused, they then begged their auditions recordings not to be shown when the excerpts start showing on TV soon. Most of the flopped-so-called-established-actors are known faces in the movie industry. Some have featured in various series aired some years back, whiles some are also in series currently showing on TV.
Others too have a chuck of movies to their credit. Our source reiterated that, the flopped actors wished earth had broken loose and swallowed them instantly as they couldn’t find their way out of the venue.
Auditions were held in presence of every registered candidate, so it was a sight to behold as the new talents watched their ‘role models’ flop.
As the known faces flopped, new super talents were discovered. Only 30 out of the over thousand candidates managed to score a star on the judge’s cards. The 30 will be trimmed down to final 10.
The selected 10 will be made to go through some tasks and exercises, after which they will be on TV for 2 weeks, where the public can help in deciding the final 5.
‘The Spirited Actor’ – The Search For Africa’s Next Hollywood Star is a new reality show in Africa [Ghana and Nigeria] to recruit acting talents for the fame and glitz in Hollywood.
Hollywood actor Rockmond Dunbar is part of the audition judges. Auditions will be held in Nigeria to pick another 5 talents to join the 5 from Ghana to be flown to New York for the commencement of the reality show.
For now, you can go ahead and guess which of the actors/actresses flopped.
