Who needs Taylor Lautner? That's what Mattel and director Stewart Hendler (Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, H+) are thinking as they move into casting Max Steel.
Variety reports that Noah Silver (The Borgias), Ben Winchell (My Super Psycho Sweet 16: Part 3) and Dylan Minnette (Prisoners) have tested for the lead role, while Skyler Samuels (The Nine Lives of Chloe King) and Skyler Day (Parenthood) went in for the female lead.
Max Steel is a multimedia endeavor from Mattel and its various entertainment partners that features a teenager teaming up with an alien to explore his newly found powers. The franchise already consists of action figures and an animated series on Disney XD.
