The Pick-Up Artist, that peculiar VH1 reality show about a behatted k.d. lang impersonator named Mystery who helps nerdy men sleep with busty and lusty ladies, is coming back for a second season. And they want you, you big lame-o virgin dork. The casting agency (Impossible Casting, heh) recently sent out a call for men, 21-30, who are "shy/socially awkward when it comes to interacting with beautiful women" and who have "no clue what women want." (So, basically men who are sober, yes?) This is basically the same call that goes out for Beauty & the Geek, I'm guessing, except the intended end result is the boning of hot women rather than the befriending of them. Oh, and it's also totally cool if you're just an actor pretending to be one of these poor saps: "NOTE: ALSO INCLUDE PERFORMANCE VIDEOS OR ACTOR SLATES IF AVAILABLE. DO NOT SEND DEMO TAPES," says the casting email (loudly). So there you go, straight men who are awkward around women you'd like to sex (or are actors hoping to hitch their stars to Mystery's onyx-plated wagon), here's your chance. Full email after the jump.
