A robot has taken the first step towards becoming a working actor by applying for a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) card.The robot, whose acting style could be considered stiff, is named IRB 2400. It made its screen debut recently by costarring in an America’s Got Talent dance routine with a group called Freelusion. The video has been viewed almost 100,000 times on YouTube.In the routine, the robot shows off his acting chops by swirling its clanky machine arms around the stage and pointing a laser beam at the performers. —Daily Mail Online
