Casting for Teddy Roosevelt

  • CASTINGCASTING: Male to portray TEDDY ROOSEVELT as both a young man (mid 20’s) & also older (in his 50’s; we’ll age actor if appropriate). Physical resemblance a plus, but more importantly, strong acting chops to embody his powerful, charismatic, albeit slightly nerdy persona. Horse riding skills a plus!

The show is a special for National Geographic’s EXPLORER called “What Would Teddy Do?,” which will examine our current political climate through the lens of TR’s life & experiences. Shoot is in the Baltics (Lithuania) for 3-4 days during week of April 18. Rate: $400/day, plus travel/food.
