Universal Pictures is currently having a talent search for a young male McLovin-type to play “Edward,” a high school senior in an upcoming comedy starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse was just your average everyday high school kid when he landed the role of McLovin' in the teen comedy Superbad. Now he’s a full-fledged star with hits like Role Models and his upcoming flick "Year One" (alongside Michael Cera and Jack Black).
Fledgling future actors have the chance to live the dream just like Mintz-Plasse. Universal Pictures is holding open casting calls for the role of Edward, an awkward, funny, precocious 17-year-old high school senior. Talent must be available for work in NYC and L.A. from Feb ’09 until mid-June ’09. No prior experience or preparation is necessary.
