Gearbox casting for real-life Lilith actress

Calling all Borderlands cosplayers! Well, all red-headed and impossibly proportioned female cosplayers, to be specific. Gearbox Software has issued a casting call for a Lilith look-alike to join the studio for some live-action filming for its upcoming Borderlands sequel, with the possibility of getting some extra promotional work if you can fit the part and – more importantly – fit into skin-tight leather outfits...

According to the studio's press release, it is seeking females between the ages of 18 and 30 who can take three weeks off in December to help it shoot scenes for Borderlands 2 in Dallas, Texas. No acting or modeling experience is necessary, however Gearbox is looking for someone who closely resembles the red-headed phasewalker from the original in both appearance and actions. To help potential candidates get a better feel for what it is after, the studio has posted sample Lilith poses and a Guardian Angel demo video.

The cut-off for applying online is December 3, however you can also strut your stuff in an open casting call on December 7 at the Janimation headquarters in Dallas. The successful Lilith actress will receive $1000 US a day for her efforts, the opportunity to feature in upcoming promotions, and the undying love and adoration of Borderlands fans for time eternal.

Think you've got the Lilith look and monk-like patience to deal with drooling fanboys? Check out the full job details on Gearbox's application page.

    ugh... sullying my Goddess Lilith with unruly cosplayers? Have you seen the common western cosplayer?!? None of them would do it justice unless they're the 'professional' type and im sure you readers know all the pro's by their real names. Just get an actress that can pull it off... Allison Scagliotti of Warehouse 13 would be a perfect fit imo. Hair, skin, body, emotes, one-liners, she's got it all. And NO don't get Allison Hannigan. But Karen Gillian (Dr. Who) or maybe even Mila Jovovich (Resident Evil) could work but my mind's set on allison SCAGliotti... see? she even has last name reminiscent of the Borderlands Franchise, do yourself a favor guys and google her now or watch her on Warehouse 13

    I think I will try, but I'll have to put a rush on the cosplay, which I'm not happy about. Would have been nice if you announced this sooner Gearbox!

    Does this mean Lilith is going to be in Boarderlands 2? If not, then I hope Gearbox at least offers up an explanation as to why they won't be around. ps - there might already be an explanation but I wouldn't know since I haven't beaten the first.

    If I recall correctly, the cover story on the game that Game Informer ran a while back stated that the four main characters from the first game will return as NPCs that players will encounter. I think the article detailed some of a set of missions involving Roland.

    I might be able to pull it off with an unethical amount of hair dye and a few cantaloupes.

    It shouldn't be that hard. Just come up with a name for an an indie band that no one could have possibly ever heard of. Then head down to Starbucks and change the chalk board out front to read that your fictional band is playing there that night. The place will be filled to the rafters with skinny girls with tattoos and died hair.

    Don't know why everyone (or seemingly everyone) dislikes you here, all your posts are pretty freakin' hilarious if you ask me. Maybe its because TW called you out as a pc elitist trolling his posts, but look at where he's at now. :P
  • db1331 - December 1, 2011 10:12 a.m.

    LOL. Exactly. The sad thing is that TW is as much a PC gamer as I am an Xbox fanboy. That's probably why PC Gamer has gone to shit in recent years.

    His posts are alright. But he does have a bit of PC elitism that I don't really care for. But some of his posts, like this one, are funny.

    You can't please everyone all of the time.

    I think they might have a harder time finding a BRICK actor. Are all the characters getting real life makeovers? Do we get to see a real life clap trap? And the most important question: may I take a baseball bat to it afterwards?
