Lionsgate: Casting Call for Autistic Young Actor

Unbreakable Boy: Based on a True Story

Based on the true story of Austin LeRette, The Unbreakable Boy is told in the charmingly unpredictable voice of an autistic teen with a rare brittle bone disease. The story follows a young couple stumbling through parenthood who find constant inspiration from the joy and optimism of their spectacularly unique son.

We are seeking talented young men (13-years-old and 5-7 years-old) on the spectrum who are capable of bringing Austin’s story to life. The real Austin LeRette has posts on TikTok, Instagram and Facebook if you want to check him out for reference, links below:



We are moving very quickly. Once you submit your contact information, Casting will be in touch with further instructions. Actors must be available from 11/10 – 12/18 (shooting in Oklahoma City) – please note any availability issues ASAP before taping!
