Open Casting Calls For Universal Pictures Feature Film Seeking Young Man 15-17

*** This film has been completed ***

Christopher Mintz-Plasse was just your average everyday high school kid when he landed the role of McLovin’ in the teen comedy Superbad. Now he’s a full-fledged star with hits like Role Models and his upcoming flick Year One (alongside Michael Cera and Jack Black).

Fledgling future actors have the chance to live the dream just like Mintz-Plasse.

Universal Pictures is currently having a talent search for a young male McLovin-type to play “Edward,” a high school senior in an upcoming comedy starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. The movie films in Los Angeles and New York in early 2009 and no prior acting is required to play the 17-year-old teen.

WHO: Casting the role of Edward, an awkward, funny, precocious 17-year-old high school senior. Must be available for work in NYC and L.A. from Feb ’09 until mid-June ’09. No prior experience or preparation is necessary.
