Hoosier Kid Pilot – Table Read
Location: Chicago, IL
Type: TV Pilots
Casting all roles for a table read and possible staged reading. Hoosier Kid is a true story and I’m writing with HBO in mind so there is some rough language. Please keep that in mind when submitting children.

The Kids – Actual ages are listed but if someone older can play that age, please submit for the role.
Ricky (Male/10/ Caucasian) Meeting with parents or guardians required before casting this role. Quiet & shy type who carries the weight of the world on his shoulders at the early age of 10. Many layers to this kid are peeled back over the process of the series. Faces his own mortality with a gun in his face in the opening of the Pilot which would send most kids over the edge but unfortunately for Ricky that is only a foreshadowing of what is to come.
Mike (Male/13/ Caucasian) Ricky’s older brother. Bad boy with no charm. The divorce of his parents effected him horribly and causes him to be angry
Janet (Female/ 16/ Caucasian) Oldest sibling to Mike and Ricky. She takes on a lot of the responsibility for her younger brothers because Brenda is working. Very caring and loving.
Julie (Female/10/ Caucasian) Chatty Cathy type. A very likable know it all.
Bobbie Sue (Female/10/Caucasian) Tall, skinny, tom-girl… Tough when she needs to be but shy.
Kevin (Male/10/ Caucasian) A bad boy with charm. Not to be cliche but he is that boy in school that all the girls love and all the boys want to be.
