John Legend Seeks “Out Of Shape” Actors To Play Trump Supporters In New Video

John Legend is on the hunt for a few white and ‘out of shape’ actors who are willing to play Donald Trump supporters in his upcoming music video shoot.

The R&B legend listed the eight roles on the Casting Networks website in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

According to the listing, Legend is looking for the actors to play protesters who will be a part of a set that will resemble a rally.

And to the musician, those folks need to be white men and women between 30-65 years old and ‘preferably out of shape’.

The listing for actors to play Trump supporters also included a photo of the preferred body type for reference. The photo showed two overweight men with Trump-wearing Trump supporting shirts

Legend is also seeking eight black men and women between the ages 18-35 to play Black Lives Matter protesters.

Another casting calls for 10 young and blonde white males ages 18-35, believed to play alt-right protesters, with ‘very short hair or short on sides, long on top’, according to TMZ.

‘We want to show that there is no segregation in love. But just two human beings of any race or color,’ the casting sheet said.

Legend, who is preparing for this shoot that’s set for Friday, has been a strong critic of the president since he was elected last November.

In May he told TMZ that Trump is ‘manifestly unqualified’ to be president and that he ‘can’t say anything nice’ about him.

Legend, who backed Clinton during the election, was asked about his opinions on the new president and he didn’t mince words.

‘I think he’s a terrible president. He’s manifestly unqualified, not curious, not good at legislating or doing anything that his job requires.’

Most recently, Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen slammed Trump on Twitter after he launched an angry defense of his performance in the wake of the Charlottesville riots and doubled down on a claim there was bigotry on both sides during the violent incident.

One of Trump’s most vocal celebrity critics, Teigen, blasted the president for his comments. The mother-of-one tweeted: ‘Trump is like, actually racist. He isn’t ‘saying the wrong thing’. He is actually racist and means this. Holy s*** lol what a f***ing idiot’.

Shortly after her tweet, her husband made clear his disdain for Trump.

‘One of the most transparent lies Trump told today is that he likes to wait for the facts before he makes a statement. Hahahahahaahaha’, Legend wrote.
