By Popular Demand: Self-Tape Option for “American Vandal” Portland Casting

Due to the overwhelming response to our recent casting call announcement for the Netflix hit series, American Vandal, Cast Iron Studios has made available a self-tape option for Pacific NW residents who were unable to snag an appointment for the auditions in Portland on January 6th.


If you are a Pacific Northwest resident between the ages 14 to 22, and were unable to reserve an appointment time for Saturday’s open call, you may submit a self-tape audition through Sunday, January 14th, 2018.

Our staff is making this option available with the following caveats:

  • Talent based outside of the Pacific Northwest will not be considered. You must be able to provide a valid physical address (not a PO box) in Oregon or Washington, and/or proof of NW talent agency representation.
  • You must be legal to work in the U.S. Production will not assist with work visas for roles on this project.
  • Applicants must be between the ages of 14-22 on February 12, 2018. Not 13. Not 23. Ages 14-22 only. We mean it!
  • We cannot guarantee we’ll get a chance to watch all of the auditions by the deadline. We’ll do our best, but we’re humans, and there are only 24 hours in a day. (Hint: By keeping your audition short, you’ll be helping us view more clips, so keep it under 2-3 minutes!)
  • You will only hear from us if we are interested or need more information from you. We simply cannot respond to the volume of questions and requests for status updates. By submitting your audition, you agree not to flood us with phone calls, emails, blog comments, social media messages or carrier pigeons. Please help us have more time to watch everyone’s videos. We promise we’ll be in touch if we need you! Thank you in advance.

We recommend that interested parties watch Season One of the series, prior to submitting.

Please click on the link below to apply. Be sure to follow all instructions carefully.


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

Keep an eye on our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for further updates and additional opportunities.

Ages 14-22 only; based in the Pacific NW with valid U.S. employment eligibility. No other roles are available at this time.

(Note: This casting call is geared towards unrepped talent only. If you are repped by a Northwest talent agency, please let your agent know you are interested.)

REMINDER: NO CALLS, EMAILS OR DROP-BY VISITS. Our staff cannot handle the volume of inquiries. Thanks for your understanding.

    I was interested to know the reasoning behind the age cut off being 22. I recently turned 23( close but yet so far away); however, I look young for my age..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.

  2. Eve says:

    Is there a certain time on January 14th that the tapes need to be submitted by?…or should I assume it’ll be 11:59pm on that date?

    As I was trying to fill out the google form for video auditions, my computer restarted multiple times. I apologize if the form was sent in multiple times.

    Happy New year and good luck!

  5. Gracie Hendgen says:

    So if I turn 14 on january 22nd, will I be able to audition. Another question also is I dont have an agent and I’ve never acted profeshionally, do I have a chance?

    This is Sebastian Hauskins, my link was not open to view and I just realized… If you could be so kind to review it, the settings have been changed. It was my first time submitting this way. Thank you!

    Hey I come from a small town and trying to adventure out of my town and explore new things. Interested in modeling acting just never had a opportunity to do so. I am a dancing of 10 years cheerleader and dance team. I was also a coach for two years too kids from K-7. Zumba soon became my life as I grew out of cheer and dance. But other experiences would be so much appreciated I look forward to hearing from you.
