Think You're "Tough-Looking?" Your Moment Has Arrived.

''The Express,'' based on the life of Ernie Davis, begins filming in Chicago next week. It's casting time and as required in the sports movie cliche rulebook, they are looking for a ''very tough-looking'' kid to play a nasty bully.

Hold the phone though, do you meet the requirements?

You should be:


*14 to 16

*5-foot-2 to 5-foot-8

*Have the understanding that although you will look cool early on, you will receive your commupance sooner than later, just like in real life.

Casting for the wise black mentor who dispenses sage advice, the wacky but good-hearted best friend and the girl who doesn't like the main character at first but grows to love him will commence next week.
