A casting call has been announced seeking submissions for the upcoming feature film, Dumplin. The film is scripted by Kristin Hahn, and Jennifer Aniston will star as Rosie, a former beauty pageant queen who now runs the local Texas pageant. The story centers on a confident teen girl — named Dumplin’ by her former beauty queen mom (Aniston) — taking a job at the local fast-food joint. She meets a former jock whom she likes and he seems to like her back, but when she begins to doubt herself, she sets out to take back her confidence by entering a beauty pageant and gaining respect for her mother.
