Joel always fancied himself a taller, thinner, slightly more Jewish looking version of Lou Perlman, and now is his chance to prove it. (You know Lou Pearlman, right? Manager who manufactured the greatest boy bands of the 90’s and then died disgraced in prison?)

Lou Pearlman - the PT Barnum of 90's teen human males.

Except we will be a far less evil version. We need help finding actors who look like young versions of our grown-up stars, so the more people we can get a look at the better! Please forward this post to anyone you know who’s connected to actors, theater programs, acting schools, etc.

On Saturday, September 10th, we’ll be having a casting call to cast the YOUNG members of the band “❤️Throb” who’ll appear in 2-3 scenes of the movie. There’s a casting call up on FilmDayton’s website, but I’m including it here too.

Boy Band: The ❤️Throb Story a musical comedy feature.

September 10th @ 10am
A comedy feature film produced by The Levinson Brothers and Physis Films

JOHNNY – (MALE, CAUCASSIAN, AGE 15-21)
Johnny has fair skin, tall and blonde; the hot-shot lead singer of “Throb”. Good looking with a fresh fade.

HENRY – (MALE, AFRICAN AMERICAN, AGE 15-21)
Henry is the alleged bad boy, although, he would rather be discussing his 401K strategy than making out at the mall with the ladies.

LANCE – (MALE, CAUCASSIAN, AGE 15-21)
Lance is short, dark hair and Semitic features

THE NEW GUY – (MALE, CAUCASSIAN, AGE 15-21)

The New Guy has a good-looking, boyish look of innocence. Open to all hair types and colors.
