Casting Call: Principal Role for "Honey Don't" by Ethan Coen & Tricia Cooke

About the Film: "Honey Don't," directed by the acclaimed Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke, is a gripping crime drama set against a backdrop that's as unforgiving as its characters. Starring Margaret Qualley, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris Evans, the film explores themes of indifference, justice, and the human condition through the eyes of Honey O’Donahue, a tenacious private detective in Bakersfield, CA. The film promises a gritty, grizzled, and authentically hard-luck atmosphere, aiming to capture the raw essence of rural California life.

Role Description: We are casting for the role of "Dizzy," an 8-year-old boy who embodies the spirit of innocence, yet is anything but polished. Dizzy is the restless and animated nephew of the protagonist, Honey, towards whom he harbors an innocent crush. This role demands a portrayal of sweetness and naivety, without venturing into discomfort.

Key Traits of Dizzy:

  • Hyperactive and Animated: Cannot seem to sit still, always on the move.
  • Messy and Authentic: Far from the polished Disney or Abercrombie kid model. Dizzy's life in a cramped trailer, surrounded by chaos, shapes his untidy and genuine demeanor.
  • Earnest and Fun: Despite his circumstances, Dizzy exudes a joyous, earnest nature that is contagious.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Portray the character "Dizzy" under the direction of Ethan Coen and Tricia Cooke.
  • Participate in rehearsals as scheduled.
  • Collaborate with the cast and crew to bring the character and story to life.
  • Ability to take direction and feedback positively.
  • Commitment to the filming schedule in Albuquerque, NM.


  • Male, aged 6-9 years.
  • No prior acting experience necessary; we're seeking authenticity over polish.
  • Must be comfortable with a dynamic filming environment.
  • Legal eligibility to work in the United States.
  • Guardians must be willing and able to accompany the child to Albuquerque, NM, for the duration of the shoot if not locally based.


  • Competitive pay rate, commensurate with industry standards for principal child actors.
  • Travel and accommodation expenses covered for non-local hires.
  • An invaluable opportunity to work on a major film production alongside an esteemed cast and crew.
