Frat bros whose keg stand experience is so woefully underappreciated in today’s job market have a new potential application for their skills in the world of acting, provided they can get over it being kind of queer. As UPROXX reports, a casting notice recently went up on the Facebook page for CBS’ forthcoming legal drama Reckless, the series we previously learned would feature a sexy Yankee attorney sexily clashing with a sexy Southern attorney over a sex scandal, with the pair eventually crossing the ol’ Mason-Dixon line. That's a euphemism for the waist, just above the body's sex parts. They will have sex.
Since then we’ve also learned that the sexy Southern attorney, played by Twilight’s Cam Gigandet, will be named Roy (Ling Genitals, ideally), and that he is described as “a liberal Renaissance man” who “surfs, loves skateboarding and hip-hop but also fishes, hunts and collects guns,” presumably in addition to graffiti-bombing overpasses, krumping, and owning an iPod, but also wrasslin’ bears, writing speculative fiction about Teddy Roosevelt, and being incredibly racist.
Anyway, if you thought the show’s way with characterization stopped there, check out the exacting verisimilitude it's seeking for a scene in which someone will be called upon to do a keg stand—hopefully as Gigandet’s renaissance man looks on and says, “Sick, brah!” while also filing his taxes.
