Final Note

The Real World: Zuccotti Park?

Kai Ryssdal Oct 20, 2011

This final note today, which is either the beginning of the end of Occupy Wall Street, or its rise to a place in the cultural firmament. MTV is said to be auditioning Occupy protesters for roles in an upcoming season of its reality series “The Real World.”

Both Entertainment Weekly and the blog Talking Points Memo spotted a Craigslist ad seeking likely candidates for the show.

We called the casting company and MTV. They would neither confirm nor deny, saying only they’re always looking for passionate people.
