Movie Casting on Friday -- Enormity Required 

On Friday, 20th Century Fox will hold a casting call in Memphis for the film The Blind Side.

The film is based on Michael Lewis' nonfiction book, which follows the story of Michael Oher, a homeless black teenager who was taken in by a white couple in Memphis. The couple enrolled him in Briarcrest, where Oher caught the eye of college football recruiters across the country. Oher now plays at Ole Miss.

According to a press release, the casting is for an African American male, between 18 and 21, who is between 6'3 and 6'6, weighs between 260 and 300 pounds, and is very athletic.

While the release doesn't state it outright, the description suggests they may be casting for Oher-- or at the very least a football player.

The auditions are on Friday, November 2nd at the Firehouse Community Arts Center (985 South Bellevue) between 1 and 6 p.m.
