Netflix Conducting Worldwide Casting Call for Lead in Comedy — With One Very Specific Requirement

Nov 2, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Netflix announced a worldwide casting call for an upcoming comedy. The streamer is looking for someone to play a six-foot-tall high school girl in the female lead role in the movie “Tall Girl.”

The original live-action comedy is scheduled for release in 2019.

Netflix says it’s looking for a girl 5-foot-10 or taller to play the role.

Here’s how Netflix describes the project:

“‘Tall Girl’ is the 2019 Netflix original comedy about Jodi, the tallest girl in her school, who has never quite felt comfortable in her own statuesque skin. All of that changes when she falls for the handsome (and equally tall) foreign exchange student Stig, who of course gets Jodi’s quirky, best, male friend Dunkleman and his hippie mom as a host family. As a result, Jodi gets embroiled in a surprising love triangle, which helps her realize she’s far more than her insecurities about her height have led her to believe.”
