Now casting: Mark Wahlberg movie seeks kids

Are you ready to make your mark on Atlanta's film and TV industry? Are you the next Tyler Perry? ATL is in need of young stars. Check out the Peach City's latest casting call for your chance at fame.

Mark Wahlberg will star in this Paramount comedy and will also serve as co-producer. The film is about a couple who adopts through the foster care system and finds themselves raising three wild kids, according to Variety.

What are they looking for?

Two children are needed, and if their color or cut is longer or different from what's listed, the child should be open to letting casting cut/color his or her hair:

  • Hispanic, Asian or Caucasian female with dark brown/black hair, 42-46" tall and approximately 5 to 7 years old with an average build. Hair should straight and below the shoulders, with no bangs preferred. Height/size is more important than age.
  • Hispanic, Asian or Caucasian male with dark brown/black hair, 56-59" tall and approximately 10-12 years old with an average build. Hair should be slightly longer or possibly bushy. Height/size is more important than age.

For each role, theater or set experience is a plus but isn't required. Children should have a good disposition, not be too shy, be able to follow directions and be well behaved. They should also be comfortable interacting with lead actors at times.

Kids should have open availability Mondays through Fridays during filming. They'll work a few days a week – sometimes more – and one chaperone must always accompany them.

How much does it pay?

Pay is $22 for the interview and $154 for 12 hours with overtime after that on each workday. (Minors in these age ranges won't work more than 10 hours a day.)

Send an e-mail to with "FAMILY KID DOUBLE" in the subject line. If you're submitting more than one child, include them in the same e-mail.

Include their first and last name, phone number(s), city and state where you live, email address, age, height and weight. Also list any theater or set experience your child may have or attach a resume. You should briefly verify the disposition/good behavior of your child.
