Multi-platinum-selling artist and bestselling author TOM DELONGE has cast the lead roles for his upcoming feature film, STRANGE TIMES. Produced by DeLonge’s multi-media company, To the Stars and partners The Cartel and Striker Entertainment, the film is based on DeLonge’s STRANGE TIMES franchise about a group of rebellious San Diego skateboarders who take it upon themselves to investigate their town’s paranormal activity and wind up embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. Jack Samson (‘Zodiac’) has signed on to play the part of Charlie Wilkens and Lizze Broadway (“Bones,” “Chicago PD”) will take the role of Alli.
“There were more than 3000 casting submissions for the film, but Jack and Lizze immediately stood out,” says DeLonge, who will also serve as the film’s director. “They’re incredibly talented actors who each bring a unique energy and perspective to the film. We were blown away watching them bring Charlie and Alli to life.”
