Who says there’s no great heartbreaking roles out there?

Looking to diversify your role base? Like making children cry?

Apparently, if you’re an actor having trouble finding work you’re just not looking hard enough. There’s some money parts waiting for you if you comb through Craigslist. From the Washington DC edition:

My deceased aunt gave my two kids a Cocker Spaniel a few months back. The dog has been a terror and become overwhelming for me. I am a single father raising two young children. I cannot face telling the kids that the dog must go. I have found a good home for the dog, and just need someone to transport the dog, and play the villain.

Premise: You will be the dog walker hired by daddy (me) to walk Skittles. I will introduce you to the kids,spaniel and you will tell them you are going to help Skittles get her exercise when Daddy is too busy to walk her. At that point you will walk Skittles to your car and take her to her new family 20 minutes from my place. Then return holding just a leash. The story will be that Skittles broke free of the leash and took off. At this point prepare for crying, things being thrown at you, and possibly cursing. My kids are young and dramatic, their girls.

Pay will be $500. The job will take roughly 2 hours at best.

This job is ideal for an actor looking to diversify their role base, or someone who genuinely likes to make children cry. Acting experience is a plus, but not necessary. Please inform me of any prior experience in this kind of situation.

Ok, now hands up all of you who would consider this job, if even for a second.


  1. Wow. Parenting Fail.

    Is it wrong for me to hope that the girls are idly googling “Skittles” and “dog” and come across this?

    Then again, Momma could totally use $500…

  2. Someone needs to rescue these girls, let alone the dog. Sigh. Once again the job of being an Actor is denigrated by the ignorant. I know, I know, look at the source of the comment, but really. Is it too much to ask for a little respect for the profession? Come on people.

  3. i’m in.

    wonderful solution for both parties as far as i’m concerned…he did find a new home for the dog after all.

    i take no one here had a dad with a gun and a back forty….?
