Christie, 54, is from Newark, New Jersey and is a vocal Mets and Cowboys fan -- and Philly sports basher. During an appearance on the WFAN morning show in January, Christie bashed Eagles fans calling them "generally angry, awful people."

Christie also has previously ripped Phillies fans on SNYcalling them "angry" and "bitter" and that Citizens Bank Park wasn't safe. 

His audition will come less than a week after his beach stunt.
