2nd Update: OK, it turns out there really is a casting call out there for the Lee DeWyze music video.  The weirdo who tweeted the information was definitely trolling for girls. He’s got nothing to do with the casting, so don’t contact him! The original information came from a casting website or agent. (thanks kberlypat!).  I’ve posted the new info below

UPDATE: Now that I’ve had a minute to really look at the twitter of the guy who sent out this call, I’m beginning to think it’s fake. He may be somebody trolling the internet for chicks. He has a really really unhealthy obsession with Kelly Rowland.

Check it out here.

A casting call has gone out for a Lee DeWyze music video. It looks like it will be shot around October 29.

It doesn’t say, but I would assume it’s for Lee’s single, “Sweet Serendipity”.

    I wonder if they have booked the trendy street car/trolley turn diner yet?

  • hazuki

    Joss Stone, anyone?

    I wonder if they have booked the trendy street car/trolley turn diner yet?

    haha I was thinking the same thing! It’s not like the song has alot of romantic undertones. Hard to believe this girl would be a love interest.

  • Imkhemari

    Joss Stone is too tall ….

    Bet its a hitch-hiking scenario – Lee gets picked up by the girl!

  • lili_anne7

    I thought he was more into blondes with all his talk about Joss stone and pixie Lott.

    Pathetic.

    NVM. I See she just dyed her hair..hrm..interesting.

  • Weebs787

    In what capacity is making a music video with a girl in it pathetic? Is he supposed to sit on a stool staring at the camera the whole time?

  • http://mjsbigblog.com/luvadamlamberts-american-idol-tour-2009-washington-dc-re-cap.htm luvadamlambert

    Sounds exactly like I expected it.

  • poster

    I wonder who’s directing/producing the video? Should be interesting. So much happening for Lee in the next few weeks…wonder if he ever gets to sit back, relax and enjoy it all???

  • lili_anne7

    At least the video looks like it won’t be in the desert.

  • Buffynut

    I’d say doing a music video so soon is a good sign that RCA is fully invested in making Lee’s single and album successful. Good for him!

  • smeggingnuts

    I bet its a montage where Lee and the girl keep bumping into each other. Like they are in the grocery store and both reach for the same tomato, its raining and the both dash under the only cover available ect ect

    Oh and at the end they will be at a fair each standing inline for the ferris wheel alone and they end up haveing to sit with each other and finally get a chance to talk

    Hehe

  • aprilfoolish

    The bumping into each other would be a cute idea.

  • glamertitis

    I’d like to know what is pathetic about this casting call as well… is Lee allowed to try to do anything without the usual negative smackdown by some? At least he is trying to be current and make a video… what is wrong with that?

  • cristististi

    I need Lee and piano. This needs to happen somehow. ;)

  • smeggingnuts

    Nothing wrong with it I was just making guesses based on the lyrics of the song

  • Willis

    The makings of a good music video. Get it, Lee!

  • Ratna12

    So much happening for Lee in the next few weeks…wonder if he ever gets to sit back, relax and enjoy it all???

    The hard work is just beginning. Now he has to go all over the radio stations, do mini concerts all over the country selling the single and eventually the album.

  • Weebs787

    He has a really really unhealthy obsession with Kelly Rowland.

    I wondered why every tweet of his was tagged with Kelly Rowland. And some of his follow up tweets about Lee having “pretty fans” is pretty sketch and creepy. *shudders* Creeeeeppppyyyy

    Oh, yeah, he has nothing on his plate, compared to what will be needed in the year ahead. Including sucking up to radio stations everywhere doing their concerts.

    At least the video looks like it won’t be in the desert.

    Not a Kris fan, but I loved that video! Very visual.

    Wow that is super creepy, and he’s asking for contact information. I hope more people get warned about this guy.

    ETA: I just read his last tweet where he’s saying that he got a lot of phone numbers and emails. This guy is sick and I feel bad for the girls that already sent him their contact info.

  • smeggingnuts

    OMG that is SUPER CREEPY……wow

  • mozart4898

    Really odd thing about it is if it’s some guy trying to find girls, he’s REALLY not too smart. The casting call says they’re located in Los Angeles but all you gotta do is reverse phone lookup the phone number given and what comes up? That it’s a NYC cell phone number. Yeah, there are multiple offices of any number of companies/agencies or whatever, but a casting call for Los Angeles with a phone number listed that refers back to a NYC cell phone, not a landline even?

    Smart one there, buddy.

  • Weebs787

    I also googled his “Company”. The only Team Management Corp on the first 5 pages is based out of Texas and is a Finance company. Totally fake.

    Unless you count the link to his Myspace and his LinkedIn. Can’t you write whatever on that as well?

  • Ratna12

    I think Lee or his management should quickly clear this up so the women know if this is legit or not.
    How scary.

  • too-cool-for-school

    That’s ridiculous and creepy. Wouldn’t there be rules against that? Or is it too much of a personal responsibility issue? AKA being extra cautious of giving out info or pictures to random men on Twitter.

    Either way, what a lowlife.

    Definitely they should. I mean, Lee seems to be pretty with it when it comes to Twitter, and I’d be pretty surprised if someone hasn’t already tweeted to him to ask him if this is legit or what. While I don’t know if he’d instantly respond to everyone saying if it isn’t (or in fact is, which it seems unlikely), I wouldn’t be surprised if he himself would say something, at least to make sure that people aren’t giving info out to people that shouldn’t be getting it. In fact, if I had Twitter I myself would tweet to him to ask if this was legit…but I’m sure by now he’s probably gotten such a tweet, if not many.

    Depending on what the guy did with any info he got, or exact specific laws about what he asked for and how it was handled, I don’t know if laws would actually apply to what he did. Fraud of some type – using the name of another or falsely representing yourself in some way to obtain personal information? Seems possible. If so, he did it using the Internet/telephone, meaning it’s national (even world wide), therefore a federal issue and not a state one – so if laws were broken, odds are they’d be federal ones. Could really get his ass in a lot of hot water. (Hence my “smart one there, buddy.”)

    Sick as it sounds for me to suggest this, this sort of fake could actually be something to create more buzz leading up to when he actually would finally have a video. (ETA – And I’m not suggesting this was part of a marketing ploy.)

  • nabs

    Well i know this is a fake and all but im hoping they start filming the video soooon!

    omg yes please, RCA.

    Here’s the actual casting call:

    A real casting call would never include a phone number or a request for personal information. Casting submissions are done through a 3rd party casting website or through a casting agent. This guy took the real information and bastardized the submission request.
    And the casting director and pay rate was included in the casting call, I just deleted them for the sake of discretion :)

  • tigervixxxen

    Thank you for clearing that up. Good to know the casting call is real but a shame that that guy manipulated it for his own personal gain.

  • kberlypat

    No problem…I like to pass on info when I can!

  • mozart4898

    Wow…so the actual casting call itself was real but the guy took it and added his own info and passed it along so they’d contact him instead? Damned sleazy – and I’d imagine that in some way or another that’s illegal. I had a lot of trouble imagining that a casting call would have a phone number in it – I mean, hundreds of people (if not more) respond to those sorts of things sometimes don’t they? If there was a phone contact, it’d have to be handled by an agency of some kind and not an individual.

    But I’ll admit that even with the phone number and all it didn’t look that bizarre (to me at least) – only in the context of his Twitter account and then after looking up the phone number/company info. And with how much is done by social networking nowadays, something on Twitter/Myspace/Facebook is really often legit.

  • nabs

    oh wow, thanks kberlypat
    So happy to hear that a casting call did go out!! Music video soon..this makes me happy :)

  • rivermaya

    Just excited that a Lee music video is in the works. Can’t wait.

  • twinkle80

    release of his new single, a NYC private show, start of promotional kickoff, & a video? such a great day to be a lee fan! i also can’t wait to see this video. i’m thinking something maybe chill, fun & cute. oh, and i’m an alexis bledel fan (from her gilmore girl days) so that could work. maybe we can have the real one in the vid? lol! it’s unfortunate that this guy had to scam people but at least word is getting around about his misdeed. hope they apprehend him soon.

  • Kradison

    i’m thinking something maybe chill, fun & cute.

    This may be something along the lines of Jason Castro’s “Let’s just fall in love again” video. Really fun, cute, and easy going. :)

  • Weebs787

    the things people do nowadays to get attention. Sheesh.

    Anywho, Lee video YAY! Hopefully we get some of those precious Lee moments he’s prone to. :)

  • http://mjsbigblog.com/luvadamlamberts-american-idol-tour-2009-washington-dc-re-cap.htm luvadamlambert

    what a CREEPER

  • artemis

    If they are filming this Thursday, I guess the video will be out pretty soon, in time to help boost the single. I know that Kris fans were really frustrated that the video for “The Truth” was delayed until it was really too late to do much good.

  • Weebs787

    Light On was shot October 21-22 and debuted on November 3rd. So like 2 weekish maybe?

  • twinkle80

    This may be something along the lines of Jason Castro’s “Let’s just fall in love again” video. Really fun, cute, and easy going.

    yes, i was thinking the same thing too, kradison. that was a fun, cutesy, feel-good video from jason. i was thinking that or jason reeves’ “Helium Hearts”. those kinds of vids just put a smile on my face :)
