Dangerman Casting Answered

Discovery and Objective Productions UK are seeking a HOST with a strong science background (B.A. minimum) for DANGERMAN, a documentary-style reality series that replicates extraordinary stunts performed by daredevils, stuntmen and showmen and explains the scientific principles that make the most amazing feats possible.

So what do you say? Anyone in the mood for some DANGER!?!

I prefer 'The Prisoner' and Rover

I have just emailed them.


I said to my wife - "Do you mind if I present a science show in America?"

She said, "Mmmm, fine."

I'll explain it to her properly when she wakes up...

Does kite flying count as a dangerous sport?

If you do get it...convince them to film something in Orlando. And get me a VIP Pass =]

Good luck!

Single-line fighter kites kill quite a few people every year - you can ask Eric about the dangers of powerkites.

Let us know if they need any character references! :-D

Er... do you mind if I don't ;-)

Yessssss! It was my idea, so you have to thank me on-air if you're accepted! :-D

No, wait - you have to convince the studio to fly me out so I can come and watch the first filiming!

Reading your various comments regarding costume, I quite like the idea of a white leather labcoat with kevlar shoulderpads...

no capes. its a tripping hazard, a fire hazard, a strangling hazard and they get scuffed up a lot.

fine then, how about a fire retardant cowl, half-vest, gauntlets, codpiece, and bracers with a pair of Wellington boots to complete the ensemble. all the rest must be kevlar, nomex, denim, or thick cotton with upholsterer's fire retardant added... absolutely NO SPANDEX.

I just caught a masked man in my back yard, attempting to do a long jump over a children's swimming pool filled with acid and stocked with man-eating sharks... I luckily snapped a picture before the grisly aftermath.


LOL - except for the underpants-over-the-suit thing, I'd wear that.

If I ever get a reply

I'm a bit young but have all the other stuff down, including inventing my own stunts and sports, the new one of the week is forklift office chair mash up, with a little help from the builders...

Is your ego sufficiently strong to survive the vitriol we will heap upon you if it sucks as badly as Smashlab?

Well, to reduce it to your terms, it would be marketability, ie, the host of one crappy short lived show, or the host of a string of successful shows.

You know I could probably keep it interesting, if they have a boring idea I'll be given half an hour before hand to modify at my will, then not tell anyone what I did, result will be more interesting, people would have jobs like pushing a button in exactly 196 seconds and you boy, light this fuse when I pass you! Oh if I had money...

Perhaps Kiteman could be Dangerman!

yeah right. no offense, but hed probably be too smart to try some of the stunts

Hmm... Ideal HOST is male, late 30s to early 40s, any ethnicity, with a strong science background, adrenalin junkie/action man, renegade with a crazed enthusiasm for taking on seemingly impossible challenges, must have interest or passion for dangerous sports and related areas, "no matter how crazy the task appears he has the courage to place his faith in science."

Doesn't sound like the profile for "grandpa" Kiteman - bummer. Maybe they need a wild-haired-scientist-in-a-labcoat sidekick?

Cape provided?

Ah alas, I am over the hill agewise. As long as I don't have to eat worms or maggots, I would be up for the challenge.....but I would have to lose about 90 lbs....and 10 years.

Danger kite, danger kite, doesn't talk no shite, danger kite, danger kite, has no time for a sound bite, danger kite, danger kite, flies so high he's outta sight, Its daaaanger kite!
