Clad in Cub Scout uniforms and plaid shirts, it was Jerry Mathers wannabes as far as the eye could see.

About 1,000 freckle-faced boys lined up for hours in front of Universal Studios on Saturday to try out for the movie version of the 1950s sitcom "Leave It To Beaver."The sitcom, which ran from 1957 to 1962, followed the exploits of a rambunctious, middle-class youngster, Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver.

The audition was the finale of a nationwide casting call that lured more than 5,000 hopeful stars. Universal Pictures plans to release the film early next year.
