Casting agents coming to Minn. in search of boy for Bradley Cooper movie


Casting agents for writer-director Cameron Crowe are coming to Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park Tuesday in search of a boy for his next movie, the Pioneer Press reports.

The untitled romantic comedy stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.

The agents are reportedly looking to cast a Caucasian boy between the age of 8 and 10 for the film.

According to the Pioneer Press, the character is a boy who loved to shoot videos and is obsessed with Hawaii's culture. The film is scheduled to start shooting in Hawaii in the fall.

Boys interested in the casting call are asked to bring a recent photo to the school, which is located at 2501 Highway 100 South. The casting agents are scheduled to be at the school between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Crowe has written and directed such films as "Say Anything ...," "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous" -- which earned him a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 2001. He most recently wrote and directed the family dramedy "We Bought a Zoo."

Cooper has starred in such films as "The Hangover" and its two sequels, and "The A-Team." Cooper's 2012 film "Silver Lining's Playbook" earned him a Best Actor Oscar nomination earlier this year.
