Oh, The Michael Zanuck Agency! Apparently, they also work on Sundays!
I just received a voicemail from one of their people:
My name is [redacted] at MZA, the Michael Zanuck Agency, and Michael saw your picture on one of the acting websites online and asked me to contact you to discuss representation. If you are looking for representation, please email us a headshot and resume at bigchance@[redacted].com and we will call you after receiving it to set up an appointment time.
Okay. Here's why there's red flags:
1) It's MZA, the Michael Zanuck Agency.
2) They found me online and yet want me to email them a headshot an resume? Why? You know what I look like, and what my credits are. You could've either have bookmarked the location, or saved my picture to your own computer.
3) Your email. "BigChance?" Seriously? Come on! And it's not even at mzaagency.com - it's at a free email server.
4) You're calling me now. And you know what I look like. Why not schedule some time to meet me while you're leaving a voicemail? Isn't the way you're going about things rather inefficient for a business?
5) Calling on a Sunday? Agencies aren't open on Sundays.
6) Don't you know who I am? I already pretty much TRASHED YOU HERE when another actor asked me about you guys. In fact, when you google "Michael Zanuck Scam," my article is third on the list. Tsk Tsk.
But you do get bonus points for pronouncing my name correctly. Way to go!
