De Palma In Trouble Over Auditions

Movie-maker BRIAN DE PALMA has sparked outrage by sending out a casting call inviting a teen actress to appear in explicit sex scenes - as a 13-year-old.

The UNTOUCHABLES director and producer ART LINSON want a "Caucasian girl" who is "young" and "completely comfortable with nudity" to play the role of LINDA MARTIN in THE BLACK DAHLIA.

The search has yet to find a suitable actress and a new casting call warns agents, "Your previous submissions weren't young enough."

However, a casting associate on The Black Dahila insists, "We're not hiring anyone underage.

"But agents and managers were sending us girls in their 20s who looked too old. We want an 18 or 19-year-old who can play 13 or 14, not an actual 13-year-old."
