Glory Road: Jerry Bruckheimer Films is searching the streets of Los Angeles for young African American male basketball players to be cast in their upcoming feature film Glory Road which begins shooting this summer.

"Glory Road" tells the true story of college basketball coach, Don Haskins, who changed history for the NCAA league when his all-black lineup of players won the championship in 1966 for Texas Western against the University of Kentucky.

"Glory Road" is looking for African American males ages 20-25, 6' 4" tall and above who are able to play ball! No acting experience is necessary for the audition, but applicants must be prepared to shoot some hoop on the spot.

Open casting call auditions will be held in Los Angeles and New York. Los Angeles will be held on Wednesday, June 30 from 10 AM -- 5 PM at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood (5300 Melrose Ave).
