John Karna (“Sugar Mountain”), Carlson Young (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Amadeus Sarafini are up for roles in MTV’s new “Scream” series, according to Up and Comers.
Some of the casting for the small-screen take on Wes Craven’s hit movie franchise has already been completed.
One of the main characters won’t survive until the end of the season.
When MTV sent out a casting call for “Scream” earlier this year, details about the series’ one-hour pilot (written by “Ravenswood’s” Jill Blotevogel) and characters were unveiled. The pilot will center on a YouTube viral video gone wrong, which leads to adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey Jesen and will also serve as the “catalyst for a murder and opens up a window to the town’s troubled past.” The role of Audrey has not yet been cast.
Young is said to be MTV’s top pick to play the role of Brooke Maddox, a 16-year-old who is described as “the high gloss queen bee who thinks she’s nice and the world’s just reading her wrong, capable of being bubbly and seemingly-genuine and also capable of being ferociously sexy.”
As for Karna and Sarafini, the roles they’re up for are not yet known. But by narrowing it down, it’s fair to predict which of the following male series regulars they could be playing: Noah Foster, a “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy” friend of Audrey’s; Will Belmont, a “tall, very attractive” basketball player; and Kiernan Wilcox, a smart and new student at school who is “more mature than his peers.”
The series is ostensibly taking the place of a proposed fifth “Scream” movie, which was abandoned when “Scream 4” didn’t exactly light the box-office on fire.
