Rob Ford the Musical holds open casting call for star, Report

If you have the pipes and the right look you might be the perfect choice to star as Mayor Rob Ford on stage.

Open auditions are being held Monday at the Second City Training Centre for, Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation.

The director is not only looking for someone to play the eponymous hero but fill most of the rolls of the cast.

Finally, a feel-good crack-pipe musical the whole family can enjoy!

The production company responsible for the upcoming musical says that actors coming through to the audition are not required to physically resemble the embattled Toronto mayor, so actors of all races and ethnicities are invited to try out, but after seeing Ford’s uncanny resemblance to Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers series, maybe it’d be worth a try to see if fellow canuck Mike Myers were interested in the role. Rob Ford is the dream role for any comedic actor, right?

After the provincial Liberal sweep of Toronto last Thursday, along with Rob Ford’s declining poll numbers, it’s possible that Mayor Ford might be not be the mayor for so much longer. If that’s the case, maybe our boy Robby might be available for the role. The play is set to premiere before the election, but that hasn’t stopped Rob from doing something crazy in the past. We know he’s got the dance moves and as long as the crack smoke hasn’t damaged his vocal cords too much, we’re confident that there’s nobody more qualified for the job.

Rob Ford The Musical is slated to premiere at Toronto’s Factory Theatre this September, so get excited.
