I haven't seen a casting call for Will anywhere, but if they did have one out this would be way early.
Then one that seems to fit Will's description.
What casting call fits Will's description? I can think of two recent calls for male contract characters.

The first is for "Ben," who is in the right age group, but is Southern or Midwestern and plays guitar and sings. That doesn't sound like Will.

The second is for "Derek," the guy people thought might be a recast for Chad. It is the right age group, but calls for an actor who is at least 6-feet tall. Will has never been tall and that would be a huge size disparity with Freddie Smith.

Is there some other casting call out there that could be Will? It would be remarkably early to recast these roles, since a new actor would not begin filming for several months.

I think with a Will recast they might start early to try and find the right actor. I can see them looking several months ahead of time. Sometimes people are hired and don't even start taping for a few months. And to me the role of Ben sounds plausible. Southern doesn't mean they have to talk southern. It could just mean their mannerisms and Will does kind of have that southern charm and fits the age. Also maybe they are trying to take Will in a different direction so people don't expect a new actor to be identical to Chandler. Who knows. Maybe not. I just would like to see Sonny stay on the show if Chandler is leaving but they need to give Sonny more depth to make that work.

It is strange though for Chandler to announce this so early. The only benefit I can see would be if it is for negotiation reasons.
