In today’s other casting news, Paavo Järvi has shared a Twitter request:

Dear Mr. Paavo Jarvi,

Greetings, my name is Jared with a Japanese production company. I wanted to contact you because we are looking for a Vladimir Putin look-alike to appear in a TV commercial here in Japan. (No acting required)

Had they seen the cover of Paavo’s latest release?
