As his first task as the face of Italian eyewear brand Carrera, the Academy Award winning actor/musician/director/entrepreneur is on a mission to scout out fresh talent to be involved in an upcoming film project. Titled Carrera Maverick Casting after the new Maverick collection of shades, the selection process is simple: Leto is looking for people just like him.

"When I came across the Maverick project I was immediately connected to it as it talks about people that are brave, bold, that take risks, the wild horses, the people that are not afraid to fail, the type of people who have inspired me my whole life," he says. Here's one of the call-out clips he's made (you can watch the others here).

The casting will run in Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the US and the UK, with the winner invited to fly to LA to meet Leto and be involved in the film production with him. Entries close this Sunday April 17; upload your entry at
