The rumor that Sting is coming to WWE has been rampant for more than a year now and we may finally be on the verge of seeing "The Icon" debut very soon. A WNS reader submitted a casting message he received advertising for a WWE "Orchestra" and body double for Sting.
"I'm an actor and just got this casting notice in an email check it out he's coming...
Project Name: WWE "Orchestra"
Project Type: Promo

Body double for STING Photo Double Male / 38 to 50 / Caucasian, Ethnically Ambiguous, Hispanic, Mixed, Multi-Ethnic 6'2, 250lb of pure muscle. Prefer a guy with wrestling experience, very fit. HEAVILY muscular. Slightly longer dark hair. Will have a full face of make up on (see attached photo). paying a higher rate as we need a GREAT double for this
Orchestra musicians with own instruments Principal Male or Female / 18 to 70 / All Ethnicities Looking for an orchestra of 14 musicians, all with own instruments - ideally a full orchestra who play together regularly. They will be "fake" playing in the promo, music will be dubbed in. All will be wearing the face paint that Sting is known for (see attached pic). Must be OK with heavy face makeup. Any leads on full orchestras who would love to make some money, would be awesome!! Open to all ages (over 18) and for the most part, people will be unrecognizable."
We have also, via Reddit /SquaredCircle been able to verify this claim with another actor who posted a screenshot of the casting call email received from WWE.
