"I hope we find some of the most incredible super-fans that the world has ever seen," filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, who will direct the anniversary special, said during a Wednesday conference call. "Maybe there's people who want to tell stories about how it changed their life...but we hope we get great people who have great stories to tell."
How can an expert on all things Springfield get a leg up during the auditions? Spurlock suggests dressing up like a favorite Simpsons character, or transforming yourself into some sort of "billboard" for the long-running animated series.
