Is Your Kid The Next Karate Kid?

Leslie Harris here, sitting in for Mackay for the rest of the week. I heard about this opportunity, and I think that there’s got to be someone from our listening area that would be perfect for this.

The new Karate Kid movie, starring Jackie Chan and Ralph Macchio is having an open casting call.

They’re looking for an actor to portray Chinese or mixed race Chinese, 15 to 17 years old. He must speak fluent English, and conversational Mandarin is a plus. He’s smart, scrappy and any sort of Martial arts, movement, gymnastics and or dance experience is a strong plus.

Acting experience is preferred but not required, and he must be available between March and June of 2024.

If you know a kid who would be perfect for this role, have them send an email with a short bio, a recent photo, and where they are based to [email protected]
