Circus side-show acts being cast for ‘Water for Elephants’

‘Water for Elephants’ director Francis Lawrence updated his official Twitter tonight to let fans know that he’s been busy casting the supporting actors. He tweeted:

“Had a great day casting coochie girls, contortionists, firebreathers, clowns and sword swallowers.”

In case you are wondering, in vintage circus days “coochie girls” were the sexy part of the circus. They would shake their breasts for a quarter and give the men a peek-a-boo show! They were also known to partake in a little hanky-panky behind the curtain… for a price.

I wonder what they did to audition? 😉
