Want a featured role in a new feature film? Michael Cera is in Columbus, Indiana filming his new movie “Columbus”. The “Superbad” actor’s new movie is seeking a Caucasian male to play a love interest in the film. Casting directors are accepting submissions from men who are 45 to 55 years old. This is a really important role and will be selected off of photos by the director.
About the Movie
The story follows the character of the Korean-born Jin (played by Korean-born John Cho, currently starring as Sulu in “Star Trek Beyond”), 29, who recently left the University of Cambridge without a doctorate in literature and now is translating books for a publisher in Seoul. He suddenly finds himself stuck in Columbus, where his architect father lies hospitalized in a coma after a visit here to study noted structures. Jin waits and secretly hopes for his father to die. In contrast, Casey, 19 (played by Haley Lu Richardson of ABC Family’s “Ravenswood”), a blue-collar, worldly and bright young woman, wants to stay in Columbus with her mother, a recovering addict, instead of pursuing her own dreams. The two eventually spend summer’s final weeks together. [TheRepublic.com]
