CAST IRON STUDIOS ANNOUNCES OPEN CASTING CALL FOR NETFLIX SERIES

“American Vandal” will shoot its second season in the Rose City, and needs high-school students to fill numerous speaking roles.

PORTLAND, ORE.   Last year’s breakout hit, American Vandal, is headed to Portland to shoot its second season, and Cast Iron Studios is seeking young people, ages 14 to 22, to portray high-school students in the popular Netflix series.

The series—a co-production between Funny Or Die, CBS Television Studios, and 3 Arts Entertainment—will begin shooting in the Portland area in mid-February. Cast Iron Studios, which also handled Grimm, The Librarians, and Here and Now, is in charge of Oregon principal casting.

“There are a number of small, speaking roles that producers are hoping to hire locally,” said Casting Director Eryn Goodman. “The show truly needs all types, shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and abilities. They want to reflect a real high-school look: braces, pimples, and all.”

Goodman stated that, while acting experience is helpful, it’s not a requirement. Instead, “interested parties would do well to watch Season One, to get an idea of the tone and humor of the show.”

An open casting call will take place this Saturday, January 6, 2018 in Portland, and is by appointment only. Those interested in auditioning should follow the link below to reserve their time slot.

Cast Iron Studios is committed to diverse, inclusive casting. There is no charge to create a basic profile in the company’s database, and no fees will be charged to talent who take part in the show. For more information, visit castironstudios.com.

  1. Hey Cast Family I just saw this. This is Eduardo! I would love a time slot for this if it’s at all possible.

  2. Carter Jon says:

    Good afternoon,
    My name is Jill Edwards and my son Carter Jon is an actor. I was in the middle of submitting for the time slot, it allowed me to choose a time, which i chose 3:35 it came up as no more options. We are from Coos Bay, Or. Carter has been in a film The Watchman’s Canoe which was filmed here on the Oregon Coast.In which he had a lead role. Last summer he had a featured role in the new Netflix Series Everything Sucks! As a high school student.We are hoping there is still a time slot for Saturday Jan 6, or possibly Sunday? Thanks for your time.

    I am a 17 year old guy who is actually a huge fan of this show! I have never worked in film before but it is my dream. I’ve done theatre at Reynolds high school in troutdale (only about 20 minutes from downtown Portland!) and acting is a passion of mine. I am hoping to go to college soon for film and this would be an amazing learning opportunity for me. I hope you consider me for casting!

  39. Dede says:

    I actually had the exact same question as Zoey and was interested to know the reason behind the age cut off being 22. I recently turned 23(..so close but yet so far away); however, I look young for my age too..Is there honestly no way that we can submit an audition if we legimately look like we can fit into the age demographic for a role?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my question.
