CRANSTON - At first glance, the Corbo brothers seem just like regular elementary school kids. You'd never know that these days they're movie stars.

"They want my autograph," said 6 year old Sonny, about his friends at school.

The three boys were cast in the film American Hustle.

6 year old twins Danny and Sonny play the son of actors Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence.

"It was really cool because Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence treated them like they were their kids," said mom Liza Corbo.

And 8 year old Frankie is in a scene filmed at a school.

Mom Liza said she never thought they'd get a call, after she randomly decided to enter the kids in a casting call.

"Let's see if anyone else thinks my kids are adorable because I think they are! And within 10 minutes they emailed me back and asked me to come the same day," she said.

After a slew of auditions and weeks of filming the boys are finally, officially silver screen stars.

But, Much to their disappointment, They aren't allowed to watch themselves in the movie just yet.

Their parents are making them wait until it comes out on DVD, since it's rated "R."

Because of that mom and dad will fast forward the movie yo show only the parts the boys are in.

When it comes to their future acting careers, the boys say they're interested in doing some more.

Their parents say that they'll continue going for auditions when it seems fun for the boys, as long as it doesn't get too demanding for them.
