Want to be Rob Ford?

An open casting call for 'Rob Ford The Musical' being held Monday in Toronto...

Rob Ford impersonators, this is your time to shine.

An open casting call for the upcoming ``Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation'' will be held at Toronto's Second City Training Center next Monday.

Producers say it's a ``colour blind casting'' and that a resemblance to the embattled Toronto mayor isn't required.

Hopefuls must perform a one-minute comedy monologue and one pop, rock or comedy song. A headshot and resume are also required.

The stage show by Toronto-based Brett McCaig is described as ``an unabashed, take-no-prisoners comedy'' about Ford's personal and
political journey.

It's set to open at Toronto's Historic Factory Theatre on September 16.

    Yes, Yes, Yes...I want to be Rob Ford, always did, always will. Wish I could marry him, but I have no pussy for him to eat. Being a pussy might work though. Being the same colour as his druggie friends should help as well. Maybe I'll move to Toronto if I get the role...live in his garage on Edenbridge, do his landscaping or work at the convenience store up the hill on Scarlett Road...

      @Sonny We're meeting at the Pride parades. Rob won't be back until the day after they end but there will be lots for him to eat at the Dyke March. I'm saving Rob a pussy bag.
