    Talking American Gladiators Open Casting Calls

    NBC SEARCHES FOR CONTENDERS AND GLADIATORS FOR THE RETURN OF THE POPULAR SERIES AMERICAN GLADIATORS

    CASTING CALLS TO TAKE PLACE IN LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK, CHICAGO, MIAMI AND DALLAS STARTING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8

    NBC is bringing back the classic competition series American Gladiators and will be auditioning both contenders and gladiators for the upcoming season beginning Saturday, Sept. 8 in Los Angeles before moving onto four additional cities around the U.S including New York, Chicago, Miami and Dallas.

    The shows contenders are "weekend warriors" who have excelled and take pride in their level of fitness and want to test their physical ability in the Gladiator Arena. The "gladiators" are a charismatic and eclectic group of warriors who are ready to take down our everyday challengers with hard knocks and explosive attitudes.

    As in the traditional "American Gladiators" franchise, the everyday athletes compete against the professionals in physically challenging contests -- with the advantage seeming to be tipped in favor of the professionals as points are tallied. Classic events such as the joust, The Wall, Hang Tough and the Eliminator will be played in front of an arena filled with thousands of rabid spectators.

    Open castings will be held at the following locations:

    LOS ANGELES, CA Saturday, September 8
    9:00am to 5:00pm
    Gold's Gym
    360 Hampton Drive
    Venice, CA

    BROOKLYN, NY Saturday, September 15
    10:00am to 3:00pm
    PAERDEGAT ATHLETIC CLUB
    Sports Field
    1510 Paerdegat Ave. N
    Brooklyn, NY 11236

    CHICAGO, IL Sunday, September 16
    9:00am to 5:00pm
    Windy City Fieldhouse
    2367 W. Logan Blvd.
    Chicago, IL 60647

    MIAMI, FL Saturday, September 22
    10:00am to 3:00pm
    The Ice Palace Film Studios
    STAGE 1
    1400 North Miami Ave
    Miami, Florida 33136

    DALLAS, TX Saturday, September 22
    10:00am to 6:00pm
    ARLINGTON COURTS
    2500 E. Mayfield Rd.
    Arlington, TX 76014

    All contestants must come dressed in workout attire and appropriate footwear to be considered. They will be tested on physical ability in areas such as strength, speed, balance and agility. We recommend bringing a workout towel and water with you to the audition. All contestants must be at least 18 years of age and a legal US resident.

    Viewers unable to attend the casting call but still want to be considered can log onto www.nbc.com/casting , and click "American Gladiators" to apply.

    lol sweet (in a way)... those old american gladiators were amusing. When can we expect this to be on TV?

    Yeah, bloody oath, I'd wanna try out to be a gladiator in the future, also. A bit like getting to be a pro athlete without all the hard work and schedule lol (well, relatively speaking -- I remember Bob said it wasn't easy!). You wouldn't need to get that much bigger ... here at least, I don't think I saw a single contestant that was 100kg. The biggest one I ever saw was about 95. The other attributes mentioned in the story (speed, balance and agility) would be just as important. And fitness.

    I don't know about those tests. Cause back in the day I saw many, many stiff booty suburban contestants without a lick of athleticism on that show. Maybe things will change.

    Nitro was the shiz. He was the smallest Gladiator, but he made up for it with attitude.

    I saw nitro get his ass handed to him many a night. All attitude, little athleticism to back it up.

    Yeah, it was nothing but average kinda blokes here, either. Just guys who'll make the gladiators look good ... never-ending underdog contestants do get a bit stale after a while.

    Bring back ancient Rome.

    lol ... sounds like a good plan. I remember this British gladiator ''Rhino'' from when UK gladiators did a show or shows with the Aussie ones.
