Paramount Seeks “Fun Size” Young Men

Paramount Pictures has started a search for the two leading male characters in its Halloween comedy “Fun Size”.

Called a cross between “Superbad” and “Adventures in Babysitting”, the story follows the adventures of a teen girl who loses her little brother while out Trick-or-Treating on Halloween.

Josh Schwartz (“Chuck,” “Gossip Girl”) directs from a script by Max Werner (“The Daily Show”). An October 2012 release is planned.,

No previous acting experience is necessary, but those applying “must have great energy and a wonderful sense of humor”. Here’s the descriptions:

Albert: 8 years old, with chubby cheeks. Albert is undeniably a strange but intriguing little boy, combining childlike ways (like love of anything sugar) with unnerving adult habits (he’s unbeatable on the videogame “Aggravated Assault,” precocious, and is unflappable – even ingenious – in a crisis). He does not speak until the end of the movie. (LEAD)

Stuart: 16 years old. Born and raised in the United States. Stuart is of Asian, East Indian or Middle Eastern descent. Slight in build, Stuart is a kid who talks twice his size. Obsessed with sci-fi and comic books, he is the co-captain of the debate team with his best friend, Roosevelt. (LEAD)
