Actor Jordan Raskopoulos, who had a supporting role in Underground: The Julian Assange Story, is asking an online forum to vote for him in the Most Popular Actor category in order to deliver a mocking speech at the Logie Awards.
Raskopoulos (pictured, left), who also appeared in The Axis of Awesome and The Ronnie Johns Half Hour isn’t campaigning for a win, but he told SomethingAwful.com forum readers, “It is an award I neither deserve nor respect.”
He is even asking readers to help draft an acceptance speech.
Amongst his suggestions are, “I’m glad we’ve come far enough in this country that we can judge a man by his acting abilities and not simply by his name being on the ‘sex offender registry.’”
And he promises….
“If the opportunity arises I will also
Lick Richard Wilkins
Claim Bert Newton is a reptile with a human facemask
Stroke Costa’s beard.”
Raskopolous is yet to be short-listed as a nominee in the category -that takes place in March- but as one of 103 actors in contention, voters have until February 10 to make his ‘dream’ come true.
More seriously, Raskopolous also notes the online voting form is not geo-blocked, again raising the possibility of international fans (or even those who have no idea what a Logie is) can steer the outcome of popular votes.
