COLLEGE STATION – A pair of siblings from College Station are getting their big break.

Garrett Wareing is in Connecticut filming a movie called ‘Boychoir.’ The 12-year-old’s co-stars include: Academy Award Winners Dustin Hoffman, and Kathy Bates, Academy Award Nominee Debra Winger and Josh Lucas. Lucas played legendary UTEP coach Don Haskins, known for starting the first ever all-black lineup in NCAA history, in the movie ‘Glory Road.’

Wareing plays a troubled and angry boy from Texas, named Stet, who is sent off to a music boarding school modeled after the real-life American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey. His demanding choir master is played by Hoffman. Bates will appear as the school's headmistress. Winger plays the boy's principal in Odessa. Lucas will play Stet's estranged father.

Garrett is a student at Oakwood Intermediate School in College Station. His father, Robert, is a former College Station city councilman.

"Garrett has an amazing future ahead of him,” said talent agent Nikki Pederson. “He's one of those rare 12-year-olds, who at such an early age has tremendous depth, generosity and consciousness which are great ingredients for success. And he's just a fun kid to work with. We couldn't be happier for him.”

Garret’s older sister, Mackenzie, is also a budding actor. The family just found out she has been cast to play his sister in the movie. She will head to Connecticut next week.
