Casting Call: The Real Hipsters of Silver Lake

New, 91 comments

Oh boy. Perhaps trying to capitalize on Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat's in the works Williamsburg-to-Silver Lake comedy, some reality show producers are looking for rich, poorly-dressed Silver Lakers to show off their lives on television. Here's the Craigslist pitch: "A new Reality Show is casting Silver Lake's rich, wealthy, hipster GUYS and GIRLS 21-30 whose personal style is homeless chic: Guys with beards, ratty hair and raggedy yet stylish clothing – and Girls dressed in fashionable, vintage hippie-type garb accessorized with large sunglasses and oversized tote bags. You must be incredibly involved in the Silver Lake social scene, enjoy a sensational nightlife Silver Lake style and be very outspoken with a vivacious personality. You must also hang with a racially diverse, intriguing group of friends who all live in Silver Lake." The show sounds like it'll be The Hills: Slightly Farther East, but we're still crossing our fingers for a Jersey Shore: Way Farther West. [Image via Matters of Style]
