Universal Studios has announced an open online casting call for its upcoming film, The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, an adaptation of the novel by Ben Sherwood. The studio is looking for young actors to play the role of Sam.

Sam is Charlie St. Cloud's kid brother on the cusp of puberty, appealing, annoying, adventurous, and trying to act grown up while still being a kid. Universal Pictures is looking for 11-14 year-old boys to play the role. Sam should be a regular kid, natural, non-actory, and unaffected.

Please note that all who audition must be available for work from July 2009 through October 2009. For more details, please refer to the media alert below and go to IAmSamStCloud.com, where you can download the audition scene and submit your audition tape online.
