Holy smokes, do they pay in free bedding sets and melamine dishware?? Nick Jr. is looking RIGHT NOW for a new voice of Diego, to record "ASAP!" Does your kid fit the bill? If you're anywhere near the demo for this blog, probably not. But if you can get yourself a giggly 8-10 year-old boy, you'll be one step closer to voiceover greatness.
Here's what Nick Jr told Bronx Craigslist they're looking for:
SEEKING THE VOICE OF "DIEGO":Which means the last Diego, now 12, will struggle simultaneously with professional rejection and hormones, and will be knocking over bodegas in the barrio by 14. Stay tuned. factcheck update: Actually, he's already 14 and starring in some Disney Channel series.
DIEGO: BOY/HISPANIC (FLUENT IN SPANISH & ENGLISH).
8 - 10 YRS (NO OLDER!) (REAL KIDS ONLY - NO ADULTS PLEASE)
