PBS’s “The Odd Squad” Kids for Lead Roles

PBS’s The Odd Squad Kids for Lead RolesDo you have a child star that is just waiting for a role to show the world their talent? Lead role child and teen auditions for the PBS TV show “The Odd Squad” are now being held. Casting directors are now casting two new agents.

Agent Opaganda is one of the roles they are looking to fill. For this character they are seeking a male or female who is between the ages of ten and thirteen years old. They are open to actors of all ethnicities. This role calls for a child who uses a wheelchair. Production would like to cast someone who actually uses a wheelchair. Only send in a self tape submission if you match those specs. Agent Opaganda is a super serious agent who will sometimes say things in a way that sounds like he or she is trying to be friendly and helpful, but when you listen closely they’re not very helpful at all. Unlike Opaganda’s more deadpan partner, Opaganda is enthusiastic about his or her work and thinks that busting people on rules can be very enjoyable. This is a principal role.

Agent Oke is the second role that is being filled. This role calls for an African, Canadian male or female who is ages 10 to 13 years old. Agent Oke is a super serious agent who is dry, blunt and a stickler for the rules. Oke is not mean, he or she is just doing their job, and just isn’t that interested in your feelings. Oke doesn’t really get jokes, but does sometimes laugh at things that aren’t funny. His or her social skills aren’t the greatest. This is also a principal role.
