Jim gets stitched up thinking he's auditioning for Avatar, ends up at the circus - part two

One thing we've learned about Thane Kirby since he started at The Rock is that he always seems to know people in high places.

So we weren't too surprised when he managed to find Jim, a budding actor, an audition to be an extra in the upcoming Avatar film, directed by James Cameron... except the whole thing was a stitch up.

Turns out Thane got him some trials with the upcoming Cirque du Soleil show, Toruk - The First Flight, which is the prequel to the famous Avatar film.

It's not the movie role Jim expected, but the actual show looks pretty sick. Have a look at the trailer below (oh and it's coming to NZ in September if you're keen):
