Probably not. Why would an actor be in the new office during project development if they haven't done auditions yet? I Googled and found that there's a Netflix producer by the name of Brandon Riegg, but I'm not sure if he's in the department that would be associated with the AtLA. Still, I think a writer/producer type is much more likely to be invoked at this point than an actor, even a lead actor.

I hope they’re not casting too soon, I am trying to lose enough weight to be a Northern Water Tribe extra lol. I do wonder what changes they’ll bring in. I would like a scene between Iroh and Ozai. For the final season I do think some characters could die in the final battle, not any of the core cast but perhaps some members of the Order of the White Lotus. I would like to see some other royal titles being used in the show, since the series is heavily Asian based, they could use some titles that are the equivalent to what we saw in the show. Bumi could be a sultan, Datu or raj instead of a king, small little changes like that could be welcome.

Oh, gotcha. That makes sense.

From Bryan's tumblr:

Quote
Mike and Brandon walking between meetings from a short while back… We’re moving into a new office space, transitioning into the next phase of production. Our core team is growing. We’re writing, planning, and testing. Though there’s plenty that’s new for us in this live action process, we’ve been on this long rollercoaster ride twice before and a lot of the climbs and twists and turns feel familiar. Right now, everything seems slow, and we’re itching to speed up; before we know it, everything will be moving too fast and happening all at once. For those who are eager to see this new series and are asking if we have a trailer yet: thank you for your enthusiasm, sincerely, but you wouldn’t want to see a version of this series that was made within 9 months. Too much Hollywood fare is fast-tracked and the results speak for themselves. Thankfully for us and this series, Netflix is committed to doing it right. We’re trying to make something special that will stand the test of time. A live action Avatar series is a daunting, incredibly complex thing to pull off — a fantasy travel show with tons of VFX, CG creatures, martial arts, etc. — and to do it right takes a ton of planning. On both the original series and Korra, when we were at this stage in the production the projects hadn’t even been announced yet. The difference with this Netflix series is that you all heard about it just a little bit after we started. So it will seem like a longer wait, but we can assure you that everyone is making good use of that time so we can craft something beautiful and emotionally powerful. Also so we can make sure Appa is cute. We’ll be starting the casting process before too long, so if you’re aspiring to be a part of this thing, keep taking acting lessons and some martial arts/movement classes. We’ll announce how, when, and where to audition soon-ish. Thanks! Love, Bryan ✨

I'm assuming by "Brandon" he means Brandon Soo Hoo? I remember fans were telling him to audition for the role of Zuko. Could it be him?

Could just be a type-o from autocorrect, meant to say "Bryan", as he refers to "us" immediately after that.
