MTV has made an industry this year of recycling its vintage content, from Beavis & Butthead to Liquid Television.

Now the network appears to be updating or at least remixing its Real World franchise with a tip of the hat to the Occupy generation.

Casting calls in Los Angeles and New York this week are looking for …

… cast members to tell their unique stories on our show. If you are over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, and the description below sounds like you, we want to hear from you!

Are you a part of the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement?

'The Simple Life' meets Occupy?

'The Simple Life' meets Occupy?

The Craigslist ads come from Van Nuys-based Bunim/Murray Productions, which the New York Observer notes is casting for the 27th cycle of the Real World.

You know camping out next to L.A. City Hall for the next week and subsisting on Cup Noodles isn't really real until you do so for the cameras.

Will occupiers go for this corporate co-opting of an anti-corporate movement?

While we're recycling things, what we really want to see is Occupy Paris Hilton, a Simple Life-like show in which the celebrity heiress is thrown in the mix on the City Hall lawn to see how long she can survive without her Louboutins.

Hollywood agents, you know where to reach me.
