Marky vs LA: Casting
Mark Vassallo and Mike Piscitelli hold an insanely hot afternoon casting in Venice.
Mark Vassallo is living the dream — Croatia one minute, LA the next — but luckily in this new Oyster series we can vicariously live through him. Currently based in Venice Beach, Mark will be shooting for us while he's over there. Him and fellow Oyster contributor Mike Piscitelli held a casting at Mike's place, located smack bang between Abbot Kinney (hipster mecca) and Lincoln (drive-by wild side), which functions as our LA HQ. It was a face-meltingly hot day — 93°F (!!!) — so what else is there to do except hang out with sweaty hot babes in the backyard? Fun fact: Matthew Grey Gubler rode one of these very bikes when we featured him in Oyster #96!
