Character breakdowns

(unless where specified, all ethnicities will be considered)

LAST AT BAT:

  • Young man: Tall, athletic build no dialogue.

UNSOLICITED

  • Female (Christine) 35-ish.  Christine, is distraught even desperate. A manuscript she has discovered written by someone unknown to her is telling her life story. Each page has revealed her inner most thoughts.
  • A male (Mike) 40-ish. Mike, has also read the manuscript and his thoughts are also revealed in the pages. He too is perplexed by what he has read but strangely he seems almost resigned to what appears to be his fate

STATS:

  • Male: Ernie is a cop, he is 50ish, grizzled, not in great shape, looks like cop.
  • Male: David is mid-30’s reasonable handsome, athletic, well dressed.

The men have low key conversation. Ernie sounds a little like Columbo. They go back and forth slowly in a non-confrontational almost friendly sort of way…yet it sounds like each may be holding back something from the other. Ernie suspects David is not revealing all but makes no direct accusation. David says a little as possible so he doesn’t have to lie. Less is more scene.

GOLDEN REICH:

  • Female: attractive mid-late 20’s female (Sara)
  • Male: mid- 30’s (Jon).

Sara is smart as hell (Stanford), doesn’t suffer fools and especially fools hitting on her right after getting out of prison. Jon is also smart (Princeton), a bit horny and has lost his way with women after six years in the state pen. Their exchange is quick, witty, with a tinge of humor and Sara in not the least bit intimidated by Jon’s crude invitation.

ANSWER MAN:

Need two 40- something males.

  • Stephan is ill, almost frail but very smart and pissed because he thinks he is dying. He doesn’t give a damn about anything at this point. Stephan is bitter, until he learns David can save his life.
  • David is handsome, a bit cocky mainly because he knows things no one else knows. His attitude may be based on the fact he is an alien. He looks just like us but was born in another galaxy. David has a puckish attitude…

CALL ME JESSE:

We need two males mid- 40’s (Elvis and David). However, this scene will be shot in shadow and silhouette. The men’s faces unseen. Men will have very slight Southern accents. Their heads will be very close to each other as they talk in low voices, not wanting to be heard by those around them.

WAR COLLEGE:

  • Female (18) Girl is not the brightest bulb in the pack. Is sexy, in love and as a result dangerous in a nice sort of way. Girl is overly dramatic.
  •  Male (18). Boy is a smart kid who allows his unit to get him in trouble. Boy is calm until he hears troubling news. Then, his panic is palpable.

NEW YORK DIRT:

  • Attractive 20ish female (Kymberlie) – Kymberlie is smarter than Jason and also more calculating. She is waiting for her chance. She also knows men of all ages want to jump her every chance they can and she uses that power wisely.
  • Attractive 30ish male (Jason)  – Jason is a cool, well dressed NYC commercial real estate broker who is very sure of himself. Some say cocky. There is a wide range of emotion here for Jason. He goes to very sure of himself to abject panic.
  • 60ish male (Mr Raymond) – Mr. Raymond just wants to get laid and realizes his wealth and power is his ticket to pleasure

 

FAT GIRL:

  • 60 something female (Elaine) – – Elaine is attractive, sure of herself and dying. But rather than be depressed she is calculating. She wants to make a deal. Elaine is a ball breaker in Prada.
  • 40 something male (Brandon)- – Brandon, is shocked by having just seen Elaine’s 850 pound daughter but even more shocked by the deal Elaine presents to him. Brandon is smart but a bit naive.
