Blizzard wants YOU for first live-action Hearthstone commercial
Ever fancied becoming one of your favourite Hearthstone card characters, in real life? Well, here's your big chance.
An apparent casting call for a Hearthstone commercial has been leaked on Reddit, with auditions taking place this week. The call asks for male actors to audition for three roles—Tinkertown Technician, Madder Bomber, and Riverpaw Gnoll.The commercial, shooting in April, will be the first for Hearthstone to feature real actors—previous cinematics and trailers have been purely animation. We asked Blizzard to confirm the ad's veracity, but did not receive a comment by publication time.
The Tinkertown Technician and Madder Bomber cards were added to the game in December as part of the Goblins vs Gnomes set, prompting some to speculate that the commercial will focus on that expansion. The Riverpaw Gnoll is not a collectible card in the game, instead appearing as part of the tutorial battles.
Both the Technician and the Bomber roles call for what that calls a "little person," with the Bomber requiring no one over five feet tall and the Technician role being for an actor no taller than 3'8".
Fans of both goblins and gnomes have already begun arguing over which role better suits Peter Dinklage.
