I’ve been asked to put out the word for casting for the new Kate Winslet/Josh Brolin film Labor Day (Paramount Pictures), based on the New York Times bestseller by Joyce Maynard.

Here’s the brief scoop. There’s a role for a teenage boy, age 12-17, with cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability who uses a wheelchair. Filming will be next summer on the East Coast, so the gig will not interfere with school.

Find out more here, but act asap. Deadline is February 14th.

Major studio/film/director. Major stars. An actor with the disability in the required role.

Major progress.
