We are looking for actors for the lead role in an upcoming comedy feature film.
The Director and DP have won numerous awards and create high quality films. The Director is a Broadway veteran and loves working with great actors… This is a NON-UNION production, and yes, of the low-low budget type. But there is a huge amount of sweat equity and top-notch film gear and post-production in place for this production. We’re seeking actors of a high caliber to fit.

– Try to FIND THE FUNNY moments in the scene. This is for a COMEDY. Bland readings, slow readings, overly dramatic readings, etc. won’t work for this…. FIND THE HUMOR. Readings with good pacing, beats and dynamics (different levels of intensity, quiet to loud) will probably stand out.
Roughly 35-65. Possibly Jewish or Italian New York Lawyer (but open to others).
GUY WITH A GUN:
Big Guy 30-60. Gruff.
SECRETARY OF DEFENSE:
28-45: Looks appropriate in a suit, but no specific ‘look’. He’s probably the 30th replacement for this job and is inexperienced and nervous. Find the ‘funny’ in the scene.
Roughly 35-65. The kind of guy you’d see of CNN or FOX pitching for his side of the story. Must be strong, a bull in a china shop and able to railroad right over the poor newscaster who is doing the interviewing.
25-50. Leaning towards a black man with dreads for this, but open to what we find. He is educated and well-spoken, basically a great salesman. In other words, he’s no different than the politicians or pundits.
SENATOR HELMSLEY & STOCK BROKER:
35-65. Choose either or both characters to audition for.
30-60: The classic news anchor type. Must have great voice.
DANNY & JIM:
25-50. JIM is is probably more bookish, and DANNY more brash. But play with either or both.
WEALTHY UPPER EAST SIDE WOMAN:
Roughly 32-50. Well put together. Further notes on the sides.
25-65. The classic news anchor type.
40-65. Upscale. She’s been a journalist but now she’s an editor and totally over it. Further notes on the sides.
