Go team Cosplay: GameFly holding open casting for next commercial

GameFly is holding an open casting call for its next commercial, inviting cosplayers to submit videos expressing why they love GameFly and why the character they're dressed up is their favorite. Admittedly, this could go horribly wrong, but considering GameFly's customer base is the gamer community, the company might actually handle the situation with some respect.

The live casting calls will be held in LA, NY and Chicago (details after the break) during September, or people can submit their :45 second entry in a specific section of the GameFly site after Aug. 26. Voting for the favorite entry will begin in October and the winner will appear in GameFly's next commercial (no word if they'll actually appear as the character they dressed up as). We'll be sure to remind again of this contest as the casting calls approach, but this early notice should give ample time to make a good costume and practice packing as much geekitude into the time allotted.

Live Casting Calls will be held at:

  • September 9, Los Angeles – Hollywood and Highland Center, 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028 / 12-6 p.m. PST
  • September 16, Chicago – ESPN Zone, 43 East Ohio St., Chicago, IL 60611 / 12-6 p.m. CST
  • September 23, New York – Hawaiian Tropic Zone, 729 7th Ave (at 49th St.), NY, NY 10019 / 12-6 p.m. EST
