Oscar-nomatinated director Jason Reitman is using an unconventional method to cast a role in his upcoming film Men, Women, & Children. Earlier this week Reitman posted a tweet asking for a bit of assistance from his followers to help him cast a role. Reitman is looking for someone who can play a teen football player who’s a quiet thoughtful giant. The role sort of reminds us of Quinton Aaron’s role as Michael Oher in The Blind Side.
Hit the jump to see a sample page of Reitman script to get an idea of what exactly he is looking for.
So do you have what it takes to play Tim? Or do you know anyone who fits that description? The tweet asks that you film yourself with whatever camera you have. Even a camera phone is fine.
