David Cook mentioned in a recent radio interview that he’ll be shooting the video for his new single “Light On” this week.
In fact, it’s shooting this Thurday and Friday, with Wayne Isham (Motley Crue, Metallica, Britney Spears, Gavin DeGraw) directing.
From the LJ David Cook Community via DCO:
“There are casting calls listed in some of the trade magazines here in Hollywood today for David’s video. When Isham directs, his projects make the trades! … I have to find more about the casting calls, but the shoots are overnight for a couple of days this week…”
The video is described as “American Graffiti meets Dazed and Confused.”
A poster at LJ is auditioning for a part as an extra, and has the casting deets: Requirements for the male lead, “All American guy. Not looking for a male model. Need someone with acting ability and a great attitude…young charming looks please.” And for the female lead, “All American pretty girl next door. Must having acting ability and a great attitude. Not looking for model.”
Some of the other roles:
- Young fit All American football hero types.
- Character actress with an all American Mom look.
- Punks, skaters, hiphop types, nerds, cowboys. All looks shapes and sizes.
I’m thinking there will be a story line interlaced with David performing the song “Light On”–pretty standard video fare.
What do you think? Does the video sound intriguing? What role will David play in the story line?
