A KIA super bowl commercial is now casting lead roles in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Casting directors are now hiring actors, models, and talent to work on an upcoming Super Bowl commercial filming in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 6th through the 12th.

Producers are seeking the following roles:

  • [BOY] 9 to 12 years old, Black/African American male. While this boy has minimal dialogue, he plays a large role. He plays a boy who is homeless. Without direction. We need to find a boy who is small but fast. He has to be able to run and jump over things in some scenes. In fact, he may even look younger than he really is.  His face and body language should be capable of range of emotions. We want to empathize with him and feel what he’s going through. Picture someone like Alex R. Hibbert in Moonlight.
  • [YOUNG MAN] 20 to 22 years old, Black/African American male. The older version of the boy. He is 5’10” and around 200 lbs/
