The Indie comedy "Re-Election" will start filming in Baton Rouge at the end of the month and is currently seeking young adults who are at least 18 years old to play high school students.

The film stars Tony Danza (The Good Cop, Who's the Boss), Bex Taylor- Klaus (Deputy, 13 Reasons Why) and Adam Saunders (When We First Met)

According to Deadline, the film follows Jimmy (Saunders), a 42-year-old man-child whose life hasn’t progressed since losing the election for senior class president 25 years prior to the now current Governor of Texas. Frustrated with his circumstances, Jimmy decides to re-enroll in high school and run for class president again. But once he leaves the safe confines of his dad’s memorabilia store and attempts to join the TikTok-fueled pace of Gen Z, Jimmy quickly realizes he has a whole lot more to learn. Danza will play Jimmy’s co-dependent dad Stan, who has been his son’s employer for the entirety of his adult life. Stan is too easygoing for his own good, and like Jimmy, has felt his own life stagnate in the quarter century since Jimmy’s high school days. Taylor-Klaus is set for the role of Noa, a high school student who agrees to help Jimmy with his bid for re-election, mostly because, as someone who is continually bullied, Noa finds hope in the ideals proffered by the democratic process.

Re-Election will start filming on May 30th in Baton Rouge. You can apply via email at and include your legal name, gender, age, date of birth, contact number, city/state of residency and height/weight as well as two current photos.

Filming is scheduled to run through June.
