Young male talent is needed to portray various teenagers in the 10-part series, “Mr. Mercedes.” The Audience Network show stars Brendan Gleeson and is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. It shoots Jan. 17 and 25 in Charleston, South Carolina.

The project seeks male actors ages 13–15 who will be playing street hockey. Talent must be available for both shoot days; hired actors will be provided with some pay.

“Mr. Mercedes” is slated to premiere in 2018. To learn more, check out the full listing here. And browse more gigs for kids and adults alike in Backstage casting, which you can sort by age!
