Paramount Pictures Issues Casting Call for "Fun Size"

About once a year, I get an email from Paramount Pictures announcing a casting call for a new movie.  Back in 2009, I got one when Paramount was looking to cast the "Mattie Ross" character in the Coen Bros.' True Grit remake, a role that eventually went to now-Oscar-nominated Hailee Steinfeld.  At the time, the True Grit casting call said that people interested in auditioning for Mattie, "must be able to portray Caucasian."  I still laugh at that line.

Anyway, here is the casting call for the upcoming film, "Fun Size" (Must be able to portay Asiatic - HeeHee):


Seeking to cast the following for leading roles in the new Paramount Feature Film “FUN SIZE”.

No previous acting experience is necessary, but must have great energy and a wonderful sense of humor.

ALBERT: 8 years old, with chubby cheeks. Albert is undeniably a strange but intriguing little boy, combining childlike ways (like love of anything sugar) with unnerving adult habits (he’s unbeatable on the videogame “Aggravated Assault,” precocious, and is unflappable – even ingenious – in a crisis). He does not speak until the end of the movie. (LEAD)

STUART: 16 years old. Born and raised in the United States. Stuart is of Asian, East Indian or Middle Eastern descent. Slight in build, Stuart is a kid who talks twice his size. Obsessed with sci-fi and comic books, he is the co-captain of the debate team with his best friend, Roosevelt. (LEAD)
