Timberlake rings Boston for new MTV show

Justin Timberlake is making a return to MTV in the fall and this time it’s not in a music video.

The network, FremantleMedia (creators of "American Idol") and executive producer Timberlake are holding a casting call from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16 at the Boston Hard Rock Café, 22 Clinton Street.

The crew is casting for a new game show based on a Dutch idea that juxtaposes "The Bourne Identity" with "The Amazing Race."

Called "The Phone," the show kicks off with two strategically hidden cell phones ringing in opposites sides of a city. MTV producers are searching for "outgoing and adventurous contestants" with a "dynamic personality and are ready to win."

UPDATE: A source says there's an e-mail going out from casting folks to local theatre groups asking for participants with a Boston accent. Thanks for the wicked pissah tip.

In an email to some local theatre groups, the casting folks noted that they want families with Boston accents.
