Syfy Casting a “Real-Life Version of The Big Bang Theory”

Big Fish Casting is apparently spamming the internet right now in search of applicants for Syfy’s next big reality show: a “real-life version of ‘The Big Bang Theory’!”

Yes, that does sound like a terrible idea.

They’re looking for people in their 20s to early 30s who work or live together and… well… in the geek culture. Of course, the very fact that they’re directly making comparisons to The Big Bang Theory, a show most of us in the Nerd community find kind of tone-deaf and offensive set off the biggest red flag in my mind. The casting notice (which I’ve included below) also talks about conventions and cosplay, which immediately makes me thing of Heroes of Cosplay.

And it’s rather clear what we think about that particular program.

Anyway, if you feel like subjecting yourself to the whims of reality show editors, and dragging a disrupting film crew to your next convention (ruining everyone’s day), here’s the information:


Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
