Casting call for teen athletes for a Paramount Pictures feature film

Vicky Boone Casting is conducting a state-wide search for athletic male high school students to play two lead roles in an upcoming Paramount Pictures film. This film, Pale Blue Dot, is co-written and directed by Academy Award-nominated Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air and Thank You for Smoking). The cast includes Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt.

At this time, we are conducting a state-wide search for the following teenage roles:

  • TIM: Age 15-17; Caucasian. Tall and athletic. Quiet, handsome and thoughtful. Ideally over 6’2” with broad shoulders. Tim used to be the star of the football team. No football is required for the role.
  • DANNY: Age 15-17; African-American, Hispanic or Caucasian. Likeable quarterback of the JV football team. His head is lost in football.

Interested parties are encouraged to email a photo and their age to casting director Vicky Boone at

Please list the character name “TIM” or “DANNY” in the subject line. If cast, compensation will be on the scale of professional actors.

The film shoots in Austin later this year.

Vicky Boone has done the regional casting for such films as The Tree of Life (starring Brad Pitt), Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (starring Casey Affleck), Parkland (Starring Paul Giamatti) and The Girl (starring Abbey Cornish).
