Toronto Canada casting directors at Jigsaw Casting are on the lookout for a male teen boy, ages 13 to 14, that has some serious basketball skills.
The role is for an upcoming major commercial campaign and the teen cast for the role will be paid $1500 for the shoot. Teen must be at least 13 years old. Due to legal, employment related reasons, the casting directors are only able to cast boys over 13. Boy does not need to be particularly athletic looking and may be on the shorter or taller side. However, he does need to have some skills, enough skills to surprise those watching.
This spot is only looking for “real” teens on this, in the Greater Toronto area and will require an in person audition in Toronto this week. The production is not looking for actors who will pretend to play basketball. They are seeking non-actors who really play the game.
Auditions will be held by appointment only and those wishing to submit their teens must follow the instructions below to get their photos, videos and contact info to the casting directors ASAP.
