Chicago's O'Connor Casting Company will venture to Minnesota where lefse and lutefisk reign supreme for an open casting call searching for Norwegian-Americans interested in becoming reality television stars.
On Saturday, Dec. 21, Mall of America will host the call for those interested in applying for Season 5 of Norway's Emmy award-winning show "Alt for Norge," or "The Great Norway Adventure."
The series follows 12 Norwegian-Americans who fly to Norway and immerse themselves in culture through a series of challenges. The winner receives $50,000 cash and meets his or her alleged Norwegian relatives.
Over one-third of last season's callback finalists hailed from Minnesota and some of them made it on the show.
The open call will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Mall of America's Executive Center on level 4. You must have some degree of Norwegian ancestry to apply.
