My Chemical Romance Casting-Call Seeks "Little Girl" and "Ladyboy"

UPDATE August 26, 2010
Chris, admin of DrinkingSouls, has found that the source that sent out the casting call was ActorsAccess.Com, a casting site that promotes job opportunities for aspiring actors.

----

A screen-shot posted on DrinkingSouls.Com of what is supposedly a casting advertisement sent out to actors may give insight to the visual direction of My Chemical Romance's upcoming album.

The ad calls for a "Little Girl" with "attitude and vulnerability." The description cites Natalie Portman in "The Professional" (pictured left, Portman played the role of Mathilda, a child assassin) as a reference for the character.

"Ladyboy," a person who must be "identifiable as male" but "feminine" and who must be able to rollerskate is also mentioned. The wardrobe for that character includes tights, a layered tank-top/half-shirt combination and a helmet.

The two characters are set to appear on internal album art, promotional materials (both physical and digital) and merch. As a sidenote, the ad mentions the possibility of a video appearance.

The casting call, which was sent August 19, asked for submissions "ASAP Today," and the possible shoot dates range from August 30 to September 3.

I am in the process of finding more information about from where the casting-call came. Everything seems legitimate, but until I know the original source, I'm going to have to call it rumor. I have contacted DrinkingSouls for possible further information and will keep you posted here if I find anything new.

I'm super late, but I just realized.
The call mentions shoot dates ranging from August 30 to September 3.
mychemicalromance.com was updated to show the freaky receiver on September 3.
Connection?

The Professional was a good movie, but i hope MCR doesn't use the sexual refferences like THAT movie did o_o, I love both plot lines though.
