LOOK-A-LIKES FOR BLACK THOUGHT (TARIQ TROTTER) of THE ROOTS for a MUSIC VIDEO. This is not a body double. They will be filmed in a surreal police line-up with Tariq. We really need people who resemble Tariq facially as well as build. He is about 5'9, 175-180 lbs. All submissions should be similar height and weight - No one over 6' please. If you are unfamiliar with the band - please look at pictures of Tariq on his myspace page http://www.myspace.com/blackthought.

THIS SHOOTS- 1 DAY- JULY 11/12

Only submit if you are available for shoot days!!! Please only email up to date pics!!!!
We are going to cast mostly from pictures but we may need to meet you prior to the shoot -- possibly this weekend, or Monday July 10.

I am the son of lightning you cannot move I at all

*has friends strapped down to the couch and their eyelibs taped open. 1:00 P.M.*

"Dead serious, man. I'M, as in me, in the new Roots music video."

*1:00 A.M.*

Friend #1: "Dude, we've been waiting here for half a day. We haven't eaten or drank anything in hours! In fact, there's no couch to be strapped in. We fuckin' ate it!"

"Man, fuck MTV Jams! Let's try VH1 Soul tomorrow or some shit!"

*goes to show friends to the door, when the new Roots video comes on.*

"Oh, Shit!!! There I am!! Right there next to Black Thought!! Guys!! Guys??!?"

Yep...I'm barely 5'7" and when I met him he had on Timberlands and I still felt much taller than him. He HAS buffed up a lot over the years!!!

You don't impress me!!
