HBO has a new series that is now filming called The Deuce. The show stars Spider-Man actor James Franco. According to Deadline, The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market all ended the bawdy turbulence.
Grant Wilfley Casting is looking for a boy for an ongoing featured role! The boy will play the son of one of the principal characters in the series. They need a Caucasian boy with brunette hair who is between 9 and 12 years old to play the 1971’s looking boy. The first shoot day is tentatively set to start on Wednesday, June 8th. The series will be shooting in Brooklyn, New York.

Boys who would like to be considered must not have any very modern haircuts, unnatural hair colors, buzz cuts or shaved sides.
