Why We’re Moving To Pittsburgh

From WTAE in Pittsburgh:

PITTSBURGH — An open casting call for extras in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises is set for June, according to SWD Casting.

The filmmakers are looking for extras to play as “victims and perpetrators… within a city besieged by crime and corruption.”

We can play victims and perpetrators! One of us would also gladly play Bruce Wayne’s love interest! If, say, that were also available as an extra part.

My my, you’re one tasty victim and/or perpetrator. What brings you to this city besieged by crime and corruption?


The truth, of course, is that we’re not leaving Ohio. There’s so much to love about Ohio. Have you heard about our prestigious big time college football program in Columbus, Ohio? Oh, you have? Oh right.

Hey, you know who’s awesome? This guy. (He doesn’t have much to do with Ohio, but we love him regardless.)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

  1. Does this mean that they’re filming the next Batman movie in Pittsburgh? Are any of the Pittsburgh readers concerned that film producers think that Pittsburgh more closely resembles Gotham City than any fake city they could create in Hollywood? Regardless, Christian Bale’s presence there is definitely a huge draw…

  2. Voreblog, if you’re moving to Pittsburgh to attempt to play Bruce Wayne’s love interest, I will regrettably have to follow you there and fight you to the death in an attempt to steal the part from you. I’m just sayin….hopefully this doesn’t put a dark cloud over our friendship…

  3. They are filming the next Batman in Pittsburgh. And the reaction from Pittsburgh has been, by all accounts, joyous. “‘A city besieged by crime and corruption’? Oooh, oooh! [Pittsburgh raises its hand] Call on us, call on us!”

    Maybe there will be a scene when Batman slays the evil Gotham villain, Hines Ward.

    Katie 2, dark clouds are gathering. Tread carefully.

  4. Hold everything….a post that mentions Pittsburgh (for Scott) and links a video that combines my two favorite songs in life (Leon Russell’s “Song for You” and Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me”)? Vores, the Brewster/Kaminskis tip the hat.

  5. i love bon iver.. seeing him at Ryman soon, but all i could think of here was how Fallon was plotting for his next imitation: Fallon imitating Bon Iver singing Bonnie Rait. 🙂

  6. Well what do you think of then since you are moving here? Do you guys think it’s negative or positive for Pittsburgh? I think it’s important that people talk about why people think they need to leave when pittsburgh is such a great place to live and has always been counted in the top 10 of livable cities..
