Newcomer Landry Bender Makes Trouble for Jonah Hill in David Gordon Green’s THE SITTER

Filming on David Gordon Green’s The Sitter is set to begin on Monday in New York, so it’s about time they firm up the cast.  Jonah Hill (Get Him to the Greek) has long been linked to the title role as “a suspended college student in for a crazy night when he is forced to babysit the kids who live next door to his single mother.”  More recently, Ari Graynor (Whip It!) was cast as the female lead.  But we’ve yet to hear what youngsters would form the troublesome trio of kids in need of supervision.

THR reports that Landry Bender has signed on to star as the youngest (and presumably most adorable) child.  This is her first film role, though she has been active on the local theater scene in Arizona, a proliferative breeding ground for new Hollywood talent.  Ms. Bender is active on Youtube, so hit the jump if you’re in the mood for an audition reel to make you go, “Aww.”

Make sure to stick around for the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory section around the 1:20 mark.

Lastly, “Landry Bender” is a fantastic name for any age or gender.  Mad props, Mr. and Mrs. Bender.
