Comic Book Fans Bored to Death

HBO is like crack to me. I swear it doesn't matter what show they air I will watch it religiously, regardless of it being good or not (so far their track record has been pretty close to perfect though). One of the shows I got hooked on last year that had a brief "test" run last year was Bored to Death, adapting the works of writer Jonathan Ames to the small screen. In it, Jason Schwartzman plays Ames as a struggling writer who finds more excitement in becoming a private eye. The first season was a success and the second season finds need for you dear comic book fan.

In a press release (after the jump) the show's casting company is looking for comic book fans to play extras in a comic book convention scene.
