  1. Rachel Faris

    Hi! My name is Rachel. I am someone who is looking to become an actress. I would love be on just about anything. I think that I would be great at this because whenever I find something, I devote myself to it and give it my all. I really hope you all look at this. Here’s my info.

    Gender- Female
    Age- 14
    Height- 5’3″
    Weight- 120 (athletic build)
    Skin Color- White but not super tan
    Hair Color- Brunette
    Eye Color- My eyes change between a light blue, a light green and a light greyish color

    Thank you so much for your time.

  2. Brian Rhodes

    I am a 6 foot black male that has curly (not nappy) hair. I weigh around 152 lbs and people tell me I have a great smile :). also I am 18. I came across these casting pages reminiscing on my life and schoolwork and just had the feelings everyone gets at one or more points in their life. “I want to be famous”… ” I want to be known” … “I want to be a millionaire” but this time instead of going back to studying I decided I might as well try something. “Just fill out a simple application and hope me life changes” is what I told myself. The fact that our life has a degree plan as soon as we exit our mothers womb sickens me a little. of course the 1% got out of it… but we are all raised the same. go to school (which I am currently in college), Obtain a degree in something you like but do not love(computer programming was my option) then live your life as an average and for the most.. repetitive person. I DO NOT want to be average which is the main reason why computer science is my major. second reason is because I just plain like programming (I plan to make apps and such). I can go on and on but I’m going to get straight to the point I see this as a wonderful and fun opportunity to build a career upon. I will admit I do not have ANY experience acting but Danny Porush did not have any experience in stocks before he met Jordan Belfort. With that being said… If given the opportunity It will be a done deal for me to devout all of my effort (would not want to go back to being average Joe).

I am inspired by comedians such as Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Leslie Neilsen, Dan Aykroyd, etc. I can sing, act,and dance a gig if needed. I hope you consider letting me be apart of your movie because I promise you won’t regret it!:)

  11. Gabrielle Buerger

    Hi I am Gabrielle Buerger, I am fourteen years old, and this movie for me would be an opportunity of a life time. My family and I have watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation every single Christmas. It is the movie that pretty much officiates the holiday for us, we laugh every time, no matter how many times we have seen it. Only now to be apart of it, would change my life so much. I would absolutely give everything to be in this movie, what I love to do most is be with my friends making them laugh and laughing with them. I also love to have fun and feel like I am apart of a family aside from my own. I know that this opportunity would give me exactly that. I am not as experience as most people, I have only made up or reacted plays with my friends as little kids. As I grow up I do plan to emerge myself in local productions, but I just wanted you to be aware of my experience level. The movie sounds like it will be another amazing, comical hit, so I do wish you the best of luck with this amazing production. Thank you for your time! Like others I put some of my personal information at the bottom.

  12. Vitaly Mayes

    Hello! I’m Vitaly, and my m.o. at CMU was a serial killer! So, I’d fit right in with a cast of deceivers and other shadowy, shady characters that “The Lying Game” will have. But I can play any 20′s role (I’m 20). I excel at acting the character (I’m a Meisner devote), evoking the best in my counterpart, facial expressions, reading people, and being coachable on the set. Did a great job convincing the audience I was the only morally upstanding character (husband) in “Blue Room.”

    I’m a survivor; I lived in a Russian orphanage until I was 4, and due to my own stupidity, I had to survive with a bunch of not-so-nice guys this summer–figure that out. And I’m coming out on top and plan to re-start my BFA career this winter. So I dig the survival and the personality of building up defenses in order to tolerate the pain.

    I’ve studied with the best in DC–Deb Goettsman & Tanya Beckman at the Theayer Lab. I’ve played parts from revolutionary times–the judge in “The Crucible.” Played a revolutionary in their epic production of “Les Mis” in 2013, which garnered lots of local media attention. It was the first full-run production allowed to be performed in DC by an amateur group. Wide set of roles– from Shakespeare (e.g., Midsummer) to American comedy (e.g., “Grease,” “Legally Blonde”), to serious drama (lead role as concentration camp survivor).

    Enjoy sports, esp. b-ball and baseball. At 6′ 140 and muscular in the upper body, I’m not a bad athlete and look pretty good from the waist up.

    Can’t wait to hear from you!

    I worked for a year at a middle school in the sports program. I learned a lot about early adolescent psychology, how they relate to each other and to older kids and adults. I’ve been with my family on lots of “family vacations;” from DC to: Grand Canyon, Texas dude ranches, Alaska, Canada, Florida for baseball spring training (and to girl-watch on Clearwater beach, of course), and innumerable trips to the beach in South Carolina, where our car was always more overloaded than the RV in “RV.” So I know about “are we having fun yet?” (but usually, we did have some good fun). Oh, did I mention I made a trip from Russia to the U.S. when I was 4?

    Despite my Russian heritage, I don’t know the language, but I speak pretty good Russian-accented English.

    I think I’d fit in well for “Vacation,” and I’d appreciate a shot. Thanks!

  14. Stephen Faris

    My name is Stephen Faris. Please don’t think I suck. I am a 16 year old rising junior and acting has been a sort of dream since I was a little kid. I think that working with Ed in this movie would be an awesome opportunity for me and I should be considered for a role in this film because I am literally open to anything. I am 6’2″, 170 lbs but not fat, long (but not mega long) brown hair, brown eyes, and a pretty normal looking kid. I’ve had acting experience in the past, ive taken lessons, been in plays, and even wrote a play when I was like 9 or 10 and looking back it probably sucked but hey. whatever. So anyways, please consider me for any role in the movie, no matter how small. Thanks!

  15. Alexander Clipper

    My name is Alexander Clipper. I am 15 years old and a rising Junior. I play football at a skill position because I’m very fast, agile, physically fit and have lots of energy. Plus I’m an Eagle Scout which I feel speaks for itself, I am a very hard worker; I’ve been doing manual labor jobs for 2 years, so I’m not afraid to work. I’ve been in a few plays like “Annie” and Beauty and the Beast.” Hope to hear from you.

    Ed Helms,

    You are by far my favorite actor!! You are so talented it is UNBELIEVABLE!! To learn from you would be an honor by far.

    Ok, enough about that 🙂

    I do not have a lot of acting experience and there are a lot of candidates who has the background that I lack. The difference with me is that I can GUARANTEE that I have that spark others don’t have.

    I don’t look at acting as a dream come true, I look at it as it is going to happen. I will fight and I know it will be hard to as so much as get an audition. I am determined, driven and I am always eager to learn and improve myself to be a better person. I am a very social and openminded person that works well with others. (A good leader is a good follower)

I really hope for an opportunity to audition.

I can play a variety of roles as my ethnicity is sometimes called into question (Hispanic, Middle-eastern, and for some odd reason I have been asked if I am Swedish). I have never done any acting in front of a camera but do have some experience working on stage in respect to Improvisation.

    I’m quite hilarious and if there is a part for me in this movie, I would be honored to be a part of this epic franchise one way or the other.

  31. Kiera Higgins

    Physical Qualities include: Height : 4’11 Weight : 90 :Hair color: brown with dark brown roots coming in but will soon be dyed black Hair Length:medium to long Hair texture: naturally curly and crazy Eye color: dark brown Ethnicity: White/Panamanian Age: 21 Hello, I’m Kiera Higgins ! My passion has always been to act but was always too short to be leads in plays. However, there is always TV and film, and I can play any actor you would like me to be displayed due to my ability to look like my age or even older with makeup and enhancing my face or look like a teenager in high school or even in middle school. I’m very spontaneous and a have an infectious smile. I’ve been in drama since 7th grade and currently in my 3rd year of college at Christopher Newport University and currently taking Acting 101 even though I’ve been performing most of my school years. I worked at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as many characters because I’m really swell at adapting to any character at hand. My major is not acting due to my other passion of wanting to save lives, so I’m actually studying into the fields of Biology and medicinal science, but a minor in acting. Lastly, my truest aspiration is to inspire, i make sure I accomplish that in my community and surroundings, but I would like to inspire to a greater extent and I’ll be able to obtain that by finally beginning an acting career. Additionally, I’m extremely over-dramatic and live my life as scenes. I want my life story to be told, so my life is very interesting due to my life being my own personal stage and I would love to enhance this dream by performing for a worldwide audience. I know how to project my voice, as well as touch peoples’ emotions, use space well, and I know that every move you make has to have a purpose. I probably know more as well depending what you need, but the best I can do is learn and won’t let y’all down.

    Just like everyone else I am a struggling actresses who is trying to catch a break. I’ve always loved directing and acting and that is what encouraged me to be apart of my news channel at my old high school for two years. I was an anchor for one year and I became an amateur filmmaker my senior year which was a success! My first year I won 2nd place for my movie as well as 3rd place for my music video. My senior year, my movie won 2nd place and my music video won 1st place and the Best in Show award. With those successes, I was featured in the San Gabriel newspaper!

    I am witty and quirky and an all around hilarious girl. I am loud and spontaneous and can get a group laughing in seconds. I am aggressive, attentive, emotional, and serious when I need to be. I am a fast learner and have experience with directors and being in front of a camera and I am well aware of the long hours and the multiple takes each shot will need.

    Acting seems like the best route for me because at this point in my life this is what I am destined to pursue. Feel free to email me at: or find me on facebook: Stephanie Melara

  37. Madison Curl

    Hi, my name is Madison! I’m 12 years old (in 7th grade) and I have always been striving to do something to make people notice me. I never wanted to be someone in the crowd, I wanted everyone to know my name. I wanted to be a model, be on magazines, be a singer, a pop star, I wanted to be in movies and TV shows, I wanted to be someone’s role model, their idol. But Ever since 3rd grade, when I performed in front of an audience, I knew from that moment on ‘this is what I want to do’ I feel like it’s the only thing I can do and I wouldn’t dream of doing anything else. I’m very intelligent and clever, sometimes sarcastic, outgoing, loud, and random. I’m also very athletic and healthy.

    I’m Caucasian. Height is 4′ 11. Weight : 93 lbs. I have wavy brown hair and brown eyes.


  38. Howie Lee

    Because the legendary Chevy Chase knows who I am. He knows my humor and we have some things in common. Throw in the fact I resemble Chevy and am almost the exact same height, I’d at least be a shoo in to be his stand in. And Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still valiantly holding onto death.

I was involved in a few plays throughout school, but have always maintained a major interest in acting. I’ve participated in multiple photo shoots my father, who is a professional photographer, has taken of me. I am very comfortable and enjoy being in front of the camera, as well as conforming to different roles. I have loved everything I’ve seen Ed Helms in and also enjoy assuming the part of comedic characters. I would be so grateful for a chance to prove myself in the world of comedy! Thanks for your consideration!

  44. Ryan Ouzts

    My name is Ryan Ouzts & I am a 19 (soon to be 20 on January 22nd) years old girl. Yes FEMALE. I would absolutely LOVE to play a speaking role in this movie because I definitely have the same type of humor as Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum & I basically have the whole 21 jump street dialogue imbedded in my brain. I should be considered for this role because I have so much to offer. I work for a news station in San Diego as a sports report currently, so I am extremely comfortable in front of the camera & having to deal with deadlines, pressure, forgetting what to say sometimes but then remembering when I least expect it. I’m an amazing human being & I want to make my mom proud my becoming an actress. I feel as though I am more of a funny person, yet serious acting has always been my strong point. I am able to make myself cry on command & I am also able to keep a straight face through anything. All in all this would be my start in the business. I have been in acting classes since I was in 7th grade all the way through high school, and also danced my whole childhood up until high school. I have so many talents & I promise if I was considered NO ONE would regret it!

  45. Jake LeSueur

    Hey what’s up my names Jake LeSueur I’m from Arizona. I’m 15, 5’11 shaggy brown hair, glasses, and a sort of chubby, thick build. I’ve never really had many acting experiences but I get told a lot that I’m one of the funniest kids around. I think I would play a perfect role of maybe a kid, son, cousin, or brother in this film that is kind of funny, dumb, a troublemaker, or any thing of that sort. I’m a big fan of the National Lampoon series so I’m pretty familiar with how this all goes. But hey you got a lot of stuff to read so if you can shoot me am email and I promise I’ll be a great guy for the job!

  46. Danielle Lopez

    Comedy is a very difficult medium. It is intellectual and requires taking chances as an actor. I am young and fearless! I welcome taking chances with my craft of acting as well as understanding it is an art and a craft. I would love the opportunity to be given a small amount of time to make a grand impression!
    Ed, you and I could be father and daughter!

I love to take up any opportunity that I can for the experience! I currently am working as a waitress at a cafe and have worked always worked with people and have been considered a people person. I probably don’t have near as much credibility as most people who are interested in this but I put my 110% effort in everything that I can do. Thank you for the consideration!

  49. Kelley

    My name is Kelley and I’m a 23 year old female with long curly blonde hair and blue eyes living in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have family in both San Diego and Los Angeles counties and would easily be able to travel to California for shooting if necessary. I have always wanted to become an actress and now that I have completed college I want to pursue my dream. Last spring I submitted my information to be an extra/minor character for the DC filming of the Netflix series House of Cards. I was contacted by a casting agent but was extremely disappointed to learn they wanted me on a day when I had a final exam and could not be on set. Watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie is a holiday tradition in my family and the other movies are all hysterical, especially the original where Clark takes his family to Wally World, only to find the park is closed. I would love to be given the chance to work on this new installment of the original comedies, especially since the hilarious Ed Helms is now playing Rusty. I was a big fan of the series The Office and think I have the right personality for a comedy like Vacation. Please let me know if you are interested!!

  50. Emily

    I’m a Drama Queen….wasting away at a desk job in DC.

    I’ve been told since I was 4 (when I got my ears pierced and shrieked until my mother perched me in front of the mirror and I noticed my blinged out ear lobes, turned my head from side to side and smiled) that I am a major drama queen.

    I figure I should put my overreacting to good use and try my hand at acting.

    Who knows? I may shock you………

    Extra talents – Singing; languages (Spanish and Mandarin, both fluent, and currently studying Hindi and Hebrew)
    Hi, my name is Iliana Jaime and working on this project would be a dream come true (literally)! Becoming a professional actress has been my passion and goal in life for as long as I can remember. I have been involved in theatre since I was five, and have been in multiple productions in the DMV area. I have experience in musical theatre, plays, miming, and improvisation. Improv comedy is my hobby – I love being spontaneous and can fluidly create any scene, monologue, or short story on the spot. I feel most comfortable on a stage and feel that I am a natural performer; I feed off of other actors extremely well and can build off of them. I am enthusiastic, exuberant, spontaneous, and love making people laugh through my performances. Ed Helms has always been a huge inspiration to me ever since I started watching The Office, and working alongside him would be such an amazing opportunity to not only advance my acting career, but as an unforgettable learning experience. I think I would be a great addition to the cast and I hope you consider me!

The countless hours of work and lines to remember and the stress would not be a problem. Stress and anger and fear cannot be what determines if you make or break. I know the talent it takes to be an actor. I know the time and effort that has to be put into it. I’m willing to do all of this.

And last I as determained and willing to do whatever it take to pursue my dream. Again thanks and please consider this moment to think about.:D

I was offered a few contracts from agents but at the time my mother wanted me to wait until I graduated before fully pursuing my acting dream. I have recently been working as an extra in tv shows and would love to be a part in any way.

  58. Sara Morgan

    I graduated from Barbizon modeling and acting school. I love to model and being in front of the camera is the most exciting, thrilling, adrenalin rush one can get. I love that feeling more then anything ( you also may call me a ham if need be). My personality is fun and outgoing, but in the drop of a hat I can be serious and focused. I do have to say, as a Lampoons Vacation fanatic, this would truly be the most fun i could imagine. Not just me, but my family has watched these films for a long time. They have become jokes throughout our family, and singing deep river when they are going over the Great Mississip. its hilarious to even admit when my family moved from Iowa to Az, driving along that river and singing that song made the whole trip worth it. Thank you.

    I love to act and have not had too much experience. I act at home(much to my parents dismay) and also have gotten lead roles in classroom plays. I turn 13 in January and am now a homeschooler. I have always dreamed of being in movies, but sadly think that it will not ever happen. I have blue eyes, dirty blond hair, and white skin. I love to sing, read, act, write, do sports, and much more. I get good grades in school but hate it.

    Regardless of what life throws at me, I continue to work on training and explore opportunities that are out there. I’d love to make that jump from theater/promotions/short films to what will potentially be the best comedy film of the year. I’m unique and comedic, so I really want to bring a different look and style to this project.

    I have never done acting before but this would be a huge opportunity for me. It has always been my dream to be apart of a comedy film. My whole life I’ve been able to make people laugh sometimes without even realizing it. I feel that I woul make my family proud if give this opportunity and show the world what I’m made of.

  72. Alex Baldwin

    Dear Casting Director –

    Being able to work in this movie “Vacation” alongside great actors and actresses such as Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Christina Applegate, and Ed Helms will help me to make a name for myself and it will give me the opportunity to learn from experienced actors who have a vast amount of knowledge and experience!

    I am such a big fan of the “Vacation” movies but my favorite of all time has to be “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”. I’m sure I’ve watched it at least a dozen times and whenever I’m scrolling through the channels and I see that it’s on TV, I stop and watch. My favorite part is the scene with the Christmas tree, however, there are SO many hilarious scenes it’ hard to pick just one! Let’s face it – I am in love with movies…

    The reason I think I should be considered as a supporting role for “Vacation” is that I have wanted to pursue acting since the second grade and continue to take classes, participate in plays and continue to audition for both theater and movies. Being an actor is my lifelong dream!!!

    I’m 12 years old, 5′ 4″, with brown hair and brown eyes. I am especially good at memorizing scripts and following directions. I make my own costumes and do my own make-up. I have a positive attitude and am punctual and dependable. I am a great listener! I do improvisation, monologues, singing, dancing and comedy or drama. I also write my own short movie scripts. I believe my training in live theater and acting coursework will make me a valuable addition to this feature film.

    Thank you for your consideration!

I have much experience on stage but little experience on camera and am looking for opportunities to peruse and show my talents that I posses particularly in that field. I recently heard that there is an opportunity for actors to be apart of the movie “Vacation” and I think I would be a great consideration, thanks.

    I’ve never done any acting on stage nor in front of a camera, but that’s not to say I’m a bad actor. I frequently keep the truth from my parents through elaborate, pre-composed scripts and a convincing demeanor. Some may call this “lying”, but I call it “acting”. I’ll have to be honest, I am not the best actor ever, but if it’s enough to convince my oh-so observant parents, then it couldn’t be that bad. I do plan on taking formal acting lessons to improve on this skill sometime in the near future. In the meantime, however, I’ll continue misleading my parents. Overall, I’m a charismatic individual who loves to entertain friends, family, whoever, and I would be a great addition to the cast.
