Boys for Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Long Haul

Casting Boys for “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” 2 Worldwide

If you loved the first movie, you now have a chance to be a part of the second film! 20th Century Fox is now looking for boys for lead roles in the movie. The second film that is based off of the best-selling book by Jeff Kinney is called “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”.

About the Movie

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure—and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.

What They Are Looking For

GREG HEFFLEY: We are seeking a bright, precocious, and appealing young actor to play age 10 – 12 for the lead role of Greg Heffley in the film version of the New York Times #1 bestseller, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”. Actor must be able to handle dialogue and have a flair for ironic comedy – imagine Larry David in middle school…LEAD

ROWLEY JEFFERSON: 10 – 12, broader and heftier than Greg, with a heartbreakingly open, honest, sweet face. Rowley is Greg’s best friend, despite the fact that he is constantly embarrassing him with his childish demeanor. Guileless, earnest and naive, he says exactly what’s on his mind and doesn’t have a bad bone in his body.

How to Apply

To apply for a role, parents will need to film and upload an audition video to Auditions are open to anyone in the world who fit the description. You are able to film your child’s audition with a smart phone, a computer or video camera.

  15. Jaekob Schwuchow

    I found this and I think to myself, “There’s a one and a million chance for anything and everything. I think I should take it. I’ve done over 9 two hour plays in my life and I’m only 15. I’ve walked the road to hell and back, lived through so much and I’m still able to keep a smile.” You hiring me is like signing your soul to the devil. You’ll get what you want, but there’s always a catch. That catch is the overriding fear brought upon your choice. And the question is, will you hire me? Maybe you should be asking, What can I do for you? You name it.

  30. Shawn Murphy

    Hi my name is Shawn Murphy and I am 14 years old and here is a reason why I am Applying for a role such as this, I am a just a weird awkward kid. I’m that one kid where I like to be myself and only myself, but some kids my disagree lol. I always thought that if I had a Chance to be in one movie other movie producers would see it and my acting and voice acting career could start. At my school we have a morning show where they talked about the schools news and what were going to have for lunch and what not. I thought wow that’s pretty cool and after that didn’t think much of it, but one day we had a group project and I had to speak. I was sooooo nervous but when I got up there and began to speak everyone was surprised and looked around because they never heard my voice before. After I was done everyone was telling me wow you have a great speaking voice and I was like really???? All of them was suggesting me to go on the morning show at school and every sense then i had a passion for acting and voice acting. I’m not going to beg because I know that’s going to get me no where all i can do is pray for it. And if you do decide to call me in that would be a honor, My Mother and Father have my full support so don’t worry. Have a Nice day and thanks for your time
