This isn't the first time that they have had acting challenges on this show. They've won guest starring spots on sitcoms, CSI, Veronica Mars. It's not THAT big of a deal. It's cross promotion. And everyone knows the industry isn't fair. Just being on the show period could give them an advantage in the industry.


There really could be the chance that one of them really does have acting chops–you never know…


I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't want to have his movie on my acting resume. Unless I was really desperate for a come up.

Oh stop crying MARIE and BLAGBIRD. They said "a role", not star as the lead. She could be in just one scene for all we know. In any case, its not like the "true actors" do any better in terms of emoting and true acting work. Plus Tylers material is not too great to begin with. So all in all, relax – youll be fine.


I mean, really? I agree 100% with Marie. Why in the world would he go to ANTM when he had tons of actors submitting video via YouTube to be apart of his movies and a young woman buying out billboard space to get a speaking role in one of his films???

And Alicia Keys as a mentor for the models??? Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Lindsay Wixon, Freja Beha, Coco Rocha weren't available??? SMH…


Exactly what the next TP film needs, a wooden mannequin/model attempting to create a character over the course of two hours. Let the models model and the actors act, thank you.
