ROLES

THE THIEF – Any ethnicity, male, 30s.   Athletic, wiry, self-centered and largely amoral.  A career criminal whose career is not going so well.  Motivated by fear and self-preservation, plagued by nerves.   The cracks in the facade are becoming a liability.  Not a killer by nature, and is just figuring out what he is willing to do to survive.  Capable of moments of compassion.  Stunt/fight experience not necessary but helpful as this is a physically demanding role.   $200 PER SHOOT DAY

THE KID – Any ethnicity, female, late teens. Waif like and broke.  An impulsive run away from violently difficult circumstances.  Hasn’t really thought her plans through.  Too young to be on her own, but old enough to try.  Well on the road to becoming a bad seed until fate steps in with an irresistible offer.  $100 PER SHOOT DAY

THE FENCE -  Any ethnicity, male, 30s-40s. The closest thing the Thief has to a friend. A bleakly comedic yet naturally affable and friendly criminal.  Very aware of the importance of maintaining a professional detachment. Conflicted between his desire to help the Thief and his own self-preservation. $100 PER SHOOT DAY

THE CLERK – Any ethnicity, male/female, any age 18+.   An average joe with a memorable face working the late shift. Customer service is not their strong suit, especially at this hour.  $50 PER SHOOT DAY

ROLES

Hank: Mid to late 30s. A likable leader and husband who has worked diligently toward his goals, personally and professionally. More recently, Hank would rather spend time pushing his company to new heights than enjoying his success with his lovely wife. Usually with a mild temperament, Hank’s hiding a dark secret beneath his professional facade. He’s a natural introvert but an incredibly bright entrepreneur.

Sofia: Mid 20s. This stunning red head is Hank’s assistant and right-hand woman. She’s a raising star at Hank’s company and his trusted protege. However, her Monica Lewinsky complex toward her mentor may lead to her downfall. She works hard and plays hard and has little pity for those who aren’t taking life by the horns.

Anna: Early 30s. Hank’s wife is supportive of his goals, but has been neglected during his rise to the top. This attractive woman has sacrificed having children because of Hank’s hectic, self-imposed work schedule.

George: Mid 30s. A loyal account manager who loves to light up the room with a joke or one-liner. An opportunist waiting for a sudden move up the company ladder, he’s handsome, athletic and an extrovert.

Ray: Late 20s.  whiney, no-nonsense employee who wants to earn a paycheck and enjoy it far away from his office. As a jack-of-all trades, he can design, code, analyze and help strategize on all levels of a client’s projects, but he’s not someone you want in the pitch meeting. What he lacks in polish, he makes up for in intuitiveness.
