Uwe Boll auctions off roles in Far Cry

Dr Boll's next video game adaptation will be Far Cry, but apparently there aren't enough actors who want to be in it - because a role is up for grabs on eBay...

Uwe Boll

Entirely fairly, since I’m the girl who flew across the Atlantic to be in Uwe Boll’s Postal, I’ve been inundated with messages from friends alerting me to this story today. Seems an item’s popped up on eBay: a role in Far Cry.

The eBay listing is in German, so I plugged it into Babelfish (as you do) and got this:

Right. So, basically, they want someone to go out to Vancouver and be an extra, but they don’t want to pay for extras. I’m not entirely sure this is above board (don’t they have unions for this sort of thing?).
