Casting Call: Skylar Astin and Justin Chon in Talks for 21 AND OVER; Riki Lindhome Joins FUN SIZE

     June 21, 2011


Skylar Astin (Taking Woodstock) and Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) are in talks to join Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole) in the comedy 21 and OverVariety provides the logline:

[21 and Over] follows two childhood friends who drag their straight-arrow buddy out to celebrate his 21st birthday the night before an all-important med school interview. As one beer leads to another, the evening spirals into an epic misadventure of debauchery and mayhem.

Chon will play the birthday boy; Teller and Astin will play the bad influences. Production on the directorial debut of The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore is scheduled for later this summer.  Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman of Mandeville Films are teaming with Relativity Media to produce.

Hit the jump for details on Riki Lindhome’s role in Fun Size.

In Fun Size, Victoria Justice (Victorious) stars as Wren, “a teen who is forced to take her brother out trick-or-treating, loses him and must find him before their mother finds out.”  Jane Levy, Thomas Mann, Johnny Knoxville, Josh Pence, and Chelsea Handler  also star.  According to Variety, Lindhome will play a “graphic comic book character.”  I am not sure what that means.  Does the script from Max Werner (The Colbert Report) feature animated section(s)? Fun Size continues to look promising, though I should disclose my membership to the Josh Schwartz fan club — this is his directorial debut.

Schwartz will produce with his Gossip Girl co-creator Stephanie Savage under their production company Fake Empire, partnering with Anonymous Content.
