Winner Of Mission Hollywood To Star In New Moon

Til Schweiger with "Mission Hollywood" contenders A new German reality show “Mission Hollywood” hosted by German superstar Til Schweiger -“Inglourious Basterds” actor – promises its winner a role in “Twilight” vampire tale “New Moon.” The show is running 12 contestants through a series of trials including competing against each other in kissing scenes, action stunts and dance perfs from pics such as “Dirty Dancing,” “Misery,” “9½ Weeks” and the James Bond franchise, the thesps will work with pro coaches to convince Schweiger, the audience and guest jurors of their acting ability. The eight-part series, which began shooting in Berlin and Hollywood in March, bows June 8, 2009.
“Mission Hollywood” is no joke. The show, which premieres June 8 in primetime on leading German network RTL, features Til Schweiger, Germany’s biggest star, and the prize — a role in one of the “Twilight” sequels — is enough to entice even the most skeptical would-be thespian. RTL and production house Tresor TV also have secured an impressive lineup of jury judges to assess the talent. Permanent jury members Schweiger and famed acting coach Bernhard Hiller will be joined every week by a third juror, among them Carmen Electra, producer Erwin Stoff (“The Day the Earth Stood Still“) and German A-list actors Thomas Kretschmann and Moritz Bleibtreu.
Via Reuters MTV has doubts about the show:
“Mission Hollywood” is a German show that will air on a network called RTL. And the young beauties have already been selected. And it likely won’t even air here in the States.
“With the much-anticipated “New Moon” already under way for a November release, it seems highly doubtful that director Chris Weitz would be able to get the “Mission Hollywood” winner into his film. Instead, the obligation may fall to newly appointed “Eclipse” filmmaker David Slade, who should begin rolling cameras in late 2009/ early 2010.”
In addition to the top prize of appearing in Chris Weitz’s sequel to “Twilight” which, at $21.4 million, is the most successful film at the German B.O. so far this year.
