Casting Male and Female Children

Casting child actors for a flashback scene to the mid-90s. We need a small group of boys and a girl who will be shooting hoops on a street corner simulating a scene in rural New York State. This is for a high quality family-friendly 40-minute movie. Children will be needed for about four hours or less on a weekday in the early evening or on a weekend during the day. Kids will have one to three speaking lines. Shooting is scheduled in early to mid June 2011 in Birmingham, MI.

Available Roles:

  • Young Tom: age 10, Caucasian, dark hair, blue eyes, three lines.

  • Boys No. 1 and 2: ages 9-11, one Caucasian and one African American, two lines each;

  • Girl: age 7 or 8, Caucasian, one line.

  • Extras: Remaining roles are for extras and should be OK dribbling a basketball.


These are paid roles but pay will be very modest. This is an independent film that is poorly funded.
