Giannis Antetokounmpo was joined by his brothers (Thanasis and Kostas) in the NBA this season.

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo says Disney is looking for young actors to play him and his brother, Thanasis, in an upcoming film about their family’s story.

The reigning Kia MVP says interested actors don’t need experience, but it helps to look like the Antetokounmpo brothers and have some basketball experience.

Interested actors can submit their information and audition tape here.

The film – titled Greek Freak – will be released on the Disney+ streaming service. It will recount their journey from undocumented immigrants living in Greece to basketball stars in America. No date has been set for the film’s release.
