The Oklahoma Kid is a key supporting role in our film Texas Red. He is Texas Red’s partner and friend. I see the Kid as having the live-wire energy of legendary actor James Cagney. He may have actually adopted his nickname after watching Cagney in The Oklahoma Kid released in 1939, a year before our story takes place. This is a paid role.

You may audition for this role at our 12 Westerns Mississippi Casting Call on July 21st. Click Here for all audition details.

Requirements for the role:

  • Age 25-45
  • 5’10 or under in height
  • Bonus Points: Experience with horses and hand-guns
  • You must prepare two scenes: 1. This side from our Texas Red script: Oklahoma Kid Side 2. Please prepare a scene from a James Cagney film of your choice. I would recommend The Oklahoma Kid (obviously), Public Enemy, or White Heat.
