THE SEARCH IS ON FOR NATIVE AMERICAN TEEN TO PLAY KEY ROLE IN MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
“Twilight” begins shooting in Oregon at the end of February

PORTLAND, ORE. Lana Veenker Casting announced today that it is seeking a 16-18 year old Native American male to play a significant role in the upcoming Summit Entertainment film “Twilight,” directed by Catherine Hardwicke.

The film is based on the publishing phenomenon “Twilight,” written by Stephenie Meyer, and is highly anticipated due to its popularity among young adults.

“Director Catherine Hardwicke is keen to find the right teenager for the role of Jacob,” says Casting Director Lana Veenker, owner of the Portland, Oregon-based casting company. “Besides being an authentic Native American, he needs to have charm and charisma. At this point, Catherine is more concerned about finding someone with the right looks and personality, than she is about prior acting experience. And he needs to be available for sequels! This will be an amazing opportunity for one lucky teenager.”

An open casting call will take place in Portland on Saturday, January 19, 2008, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Lana Veenker Casting, 2580 NW Upshur Street, Portland, Oregon 97212. Applicants who fit the age and ethnicity requirements for the role will have their photos taken and may be asked to read lines in front of the director.

More information is available on the casting company’s website at slateplease.com or on its MySpace page at myspace.com/lanaveenkercasting.
