Fox is on the hunt for its Roger Davis for the live broadcast of Jonathan Larson's Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical Rent. As previously reported, the broadcast will take place January 27, 2019, at 7 PM.

Fox and Telsey Company, which is overseeing casting for the production, have posted a casting call online with the description: male, 20s, and "playing guitar a plus."

Actors and agents can submit via the website. See the full casting breakdown here.

Rent is the third live musical from Fox following the network's live presentation of Grease! and A Christmas Story. Rehearsals will begin in November.

The 1996 rock musical, loosely inspired by Puccini's La Bohème, launched the careers of several stage and screen stars, including Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp, Taye Diggs, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Adam Pascal (who originated the role of Roger on Broadway).
