Casting Call! Disney’s Looking for Actors Play the Antetokounmpo Brothers in Upcoming Doc

The actors will play the brothers in their younger years.

Giannis Antetokounmpo put out a casting call on his Twitter Wednesday. He said Disney is looking for actors to play him and his brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, in their younger years for the upcoming documentary about his family’s story. 

The Bucks basketball star said experience is not important, but they are looking someone with a resemblance to the brothers in their younger years. Basketball experience is also helpful. 

“No experience necessary!,” Antetokounmpo said in the Tweet. “It helps if you resemble the handsome boys pictured below and have some basketball experience. SPREAD THE WORD!” 

This isn’t Antetokounmpo’s first time on the big screen. He also talked about his childhood and confronting racism in a short film by the Bleecher Report in July

The Disney documentary does not have a release date as of yet.
