It was only a matter of time before someone was smart enough to snag ‘Jersey Shore’s’ Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino for an acting role.
Sorrentino and his abs will be taking on the role of a famous hip hop star Angel Adonis, who is the main judge on a TV talent show in a web series called ‘New Stage’. The Situation recently talked about his new acting job on the show and said; “We’re gonna do a spoof on judge TV talent. I’ll be like that Simon Cow – I don’t even know his name. Nobody has ever done something like this. This is a situation in–with [sic] a situation.”
The series was shot earlier this month with Sorrentino on the Michigan State University campus and the premiere will be airing on September 27.
We have seen many reality stars make the move into music, but not too many that have moved into acting, so it will be interesting to see what The Situation does with the material. This role could really be perfect for Mike since the character sounds like a guy with a lot of charisma, just like Sorrentino, and when you match a strong personality to a role like that, magic can really happen on screen like we’ve seen with ‘Big Brother’ season 1 winner Eddie McGee.
