Casting directors are seeking talent to work on scenes in a new Julia Roberts movie filming on January 9th in New York City. They are specifically looking for an 18 month old child to play a featured role as one of the main character’s babies, but they are also looking for all types of extra roles and some speaking roles.
Julia Roberts is teaming up with Lucas Hedges in Ben is Back. Lucas Hedges had a breakout performance in last year’s Oscar winning, Manchester by the Sea. In that movie, he played Patrick Chandler, a 16 year old teen that is dealing with the loss of his father. His role earned him plenty of recognition as an actor with the capability to be both witty and emotional. Julie Roberts has been in the industry since 1987 and has since been nominated for four Academy Awards and various other awards. She was the highest paid actress through most of the 1990’s and she still has a huge impact on the industry today.
Ben is Back is written and directed by Peter Hedges (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape). The drama follows the charming yet troubled Ben Burns (Hedges), who returns home to his unsuspecting family one fateful Christmas Eve. Ben’s wary mother Holly Burns (Roberts) welcomes her beloved son’s return, but soon learns he is still very much in harm’s way. During the 24 hours that may change their lives forever, Holly must do everything in her power to avoid the family’s downfall.
