    Lionsgate has launched a talent search for a key role in Ellen Page's next movie, the Drew Barrymore-directed Whip It. Apparently the film's producers are looking for Page's potential love interest, a real musician with decent acting skills.

    Quoth the production notes of Barry Mendel (Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums), grammatical errors and all: "Oliver's a guy in a band. Maybe he plays bass, we want low key, not the front man, per se. But if he ended up being the drummer of guitar player or OTHER guitar player, okay. Keyboards? Not sure, maybe, I guess we shouldn't discriminate; we want to find the right guy. He's pretty young. Ellen in real life is 21 but playing 18 (and she's not too tall), so he can be older than her but not so old that he's taking advantage of her. He lives in Austin, knows Austin well. He shouldn't be super gorgeous or super gregariously charming, someone who's a good match for Ellen's shy intelligence. Fine or rather good if he's nerdy. Important that he's a serious musician that we see he's really playing, and that through bliss (Ellen's character), we vicariously get off on his band's music."
