Call out for 12-year-old boy for major feature film

Contributed

Vicky Boone Casting is conducting a statewide search for funny and imaginative boys, age 11-13, for a lead role in an upcoming father-son story.
The film, currently referred to as "The Untitled Jody Hill Project," is co-written and directed by television writer-director Jody Hill and stars Josh Brolin and Danny McBride. The boy will play Josh Brolin's son in the movie, which begins shooting in Asheville, North Carolina from late October through late December of this year.
The quirky character, Jaden, is a male Caucasian, who considers himself pretty cool. However, there is also a definite awkward 12-year-old-boy quality to him. All shapes and sizes are welcome, but boys should be under 5-feet 7-inches. Additionally, out-of-shape kids are a plus.
Although not necessary, guitar playing is also a plus and casting directors are open to kids without previous acting experience.
Interested parties are urged to email photos with their age to casting director Vicky Boone at vbcfeatures@gmail.com, using the character name "Jaden" in the subject line.
If cast, compensation will be on the scale of professional actors.
Kids who seem to be a good match will be invited to an audition in Austin. For more information, contact vbcfeatures@gmail.com.
Boone has done the regional casting for such films as Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," starring Brad Pitt; Jason Reitman's "Men, Women and Children," starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Garner; and Richard Linklater's upcoming "Everybody Wants Some," starring Zoey Deutch and Tyler Hoechlin.
