Vince Vaughn just found out that he’s the father of more than 500 kids, all of them the result of artificial insemination. Now he has to decide if he’ll actually let them call him “dad.”
OK, there’s a good reason you didn’t read about this in the tabloids: It’s the premise of a new movie, starring Vaughn as an immature middle-aged man and former sperm donor who discovers that over the years he’s fathered hundreds of children, many of whom now want to meet him and file a class-action lawsuit to forcefully reveal dad’s identity. The cast also includes Chris Pratt (“Parks and Recreation”) as a lawyer and Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother”) as Vaughn’s pregnant girlfriend.
Grant Wilfley Casting is seeking male and female actors of all types between the ages of 18 to 20 years old, including identical twins and triplets, to portray Vaughn’s myriad offspring. The casting directors are also casting physically challenged young adults, as well as children and adults with Down Syndrome.
The as-yet-untitled project is writer-director Ken Scott’s remake of his own 2011 French-Canadian film, “Starbuck.” Production is set to begin in October in New York City.
