MaryEllen Aviano a casting director whose recent credits include “Captain America: The Winter Solder,” all four “Transformers” flicks, “Man of Steel,” “Hangover III” and “Django Unchained,” will be in Chicago next week, looking for talent.

Similarly, Aviano and her team will also be seeking a male counterpart, to skew a bit older in age: 19 to 23. No acting experience is necessary, but all female candidates under 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

This is not an extras casting call, but is for lead roles in an upcoming Walt Disney Pictures film.
