Castittalent.com has a listing for a new Walt Disney Studios film titled, "Greek Freak!" You might remember us talking about this in the past, but this is hometown pride, and you can probably tell by the title what the film will be about:
The story of NBA players GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO and his brother THANASIS. This story recounts their rise, with the help of their family, from undocumented Nigerian immigrants, living in Greece to basketball superstars in America.
How cool is it that our very own GREEK FREAK is getting a movie?! We're excited to learn more about the beloved basketball player, and maybe we'll be able to say that someone from Milwaukee will play the part?
As stated on the website, the production crew are looking for the two actors to play Giannis as an early teenager and Giannis in his mid teens. If you know someone that would be a good fit, send 'em here. No acting experience required!
