ORE CITY – An Ore City native is going from the big screen to the small screen.
Actor Montana Jordan, who co-starred with Josh Brolin in "Legacy of a White Tail Deer Hunter," was recently cast in a spinoff to the popular television series, "Big Bang Theory."
According to media reports, the proposed series focus on Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon during his childhood in East Texas, a fact confirmed by Jordan’s mother, Kelli Smith.
According to Smith, Jordan is set to play Sheldon’s older brother, George.
The sitcom will reportedly follow young Sheldon during his childhood, and will feature the voice of actor Jim Parsons, who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper on the established show.
According to Smith, Jordan’s manager, Angie Edgar, submitted a taped audition upon hearing of the spinoff. That submission led to a call for a live audition, which led to the East Texas native playing the role of an East Texas native.
