Olivia Wilde on Working for a Casting Director:

Olivia Wilde can’t speak highly enough of her time working in casting director Mali Finn’s office, calling it “invaluable.” “Many casting directors won’t hire aspiring actors,” she warns, “because you might be burning some chick’s headshot under the table so she doesn’t get the part.” But in between watching mothers remind their child actors about dead dogs (or directors teaching child actors about the mortality of parents), Wilde was learning from the crashing and burning of even the best-trained actors.

“So many actors walk into an audition without making a fucking choice, and it would sink them,” she says. “Don’t walk in there groveling and desperately wanting to be some amorphous thing you think they want. Don’t go in there with a defeatist attitude.”

Wilde also suggests biting the bullet and finding out why you didn’t get the part. “People have nervous tics they don’t know about, and I would advise asking around,” she says. “Ask the casting director, ‘Is there something I’m doing?’ I would see people unconsciously rocking back and forth. I roll my lips. I bite my lips and roll them.”

But even all of her behind-the- scenes training couldn’t save Wilde’s audition for “Rock of Ages.” “I sang ‘I Want to Know What love Is’ at the top of my goddamn lungs with Tom Cruise in a sound booth,” she says, still laughing about the moment. “And I was so completely off, so out of tune, my voice sounded like a drowning gerbil.” She pauses, then laughs again. “But I made a fucking choice.”

Former “House” actress Olivia Wilde and “New Girl” star Jake Johnson appear together in the upcoming film “Drinking Buddies” alongside “Pitch Perfect” star Anna Kendrick and “Office Space” actor Ron Livingston.

The movie tells the story of Chicago craft brewery co-workers Kate (Wilde) and Luke (Johnson) who are friends that occasionally flirt and would likely be perfect for each other, if they weren’t in other relationships.

Wilde and Johnson recently talked to George Pennacchio of KABC Television, OTRC.com’s parent company, about drinking beer during filming, Wilde serving as an executive producer and a warning they have for moviegoers who might see the film when it opens on Aug. 23.

RYOT News Advisory Board member Olivia Wilde, along with co-founders David Darg and Bryn Mooser, recently traveled to Potou, Senegal, a fishing village in the north of the country. The aim of the trip was to see  in real-time the work of community health workers in that highly remote area and how it’s not only saving lives, but also changing the fabric of local communities.

Olivia and Ryot traveled with the 1 Million Community Health Workers campaign (@1Mhealthworkers), which is aiming to train and deploy one million local health care workers to serve their communities by 2015. One of the most impressive elements of the program is how the health workers are harnessing the connectivity of the Ericsson network to use smartphones. Through a series of apps and data collection the program is bringing modern health care solutions to some of the most remote parts of Africa.

Watch RYOT’s video below to see how 1MCHW is not only improving and spreading health care across the continent, but also helping to change the role of women in African society.
