KOIN 6 News Staff - PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Young people hoping to appear on the Netflix show, "American Vandal" waited for their chance to audition at Cast Iron Studios on Saturday.

The studio, which also did casting for "Grimm," is looking for people between 14 and 22 to play high school students in the show's second season. Appointments filled up quickly after news that the show would be filming in Portland was announced.

"We're here looking for kids to tell the story for these guys, having a lot of fun," Casting director Eryn Goodman said. "We're gonna see about 200 kids today."

Though open casting appointments are full, it's not too late to be seen. Cast Iron Studios announced it will be accepting taped submissions through Jan. 14. 

The show, a co-production between Funny Or Die, a CBS Television Studios and 3 Arts Entertainment, will begin shooting in the Portland area in mid-February. American Vandal is a satirical take on a true-crime series. It follows the aftermath of a high school prank that left faculty members' cars vandalized with phallic images.

"This show really is super popular with this demographic, and I think it's a pretty exciting opportunity for these kids to have a chance to read for it," Goodman said.
