CAST: REGGIE – Mike Henry

SEEKING:

JUNE CRENSHAW:  Caucasian Female, mid 30s.  Attractive and well groomed, loves Talbots.   A real country clubber through and through, with a wicked sense of fun and adventure.  Doesn’t always remember what she got up to the night before.   JUNE is a single mom, but has plenty of time to enjoy a tequila shot at the club. Not worried about much.   Must be willing to smoke.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).  2 days.

CAMILLE SANDERS: Caucasian Female, mid 20s.  Stylish and extremely “hot”, a starlet who knows herself and her limits. REGGIE is looking for love in all the wrong places.  CAMILLE is along for the ride, the sex, the connections and the parties.  Willing to deal with REGGIE’S testosterone and visceral emptiness to a point.  Excellent texter, lives for Instagram.  Must be willing to smoke and appear in thong underwear.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).   1 possibly 2  days.

CHARLIE JENKINS: Caucasian Male, 10-13yrs. Mesmerizing.  Smart.  Sweet and good looking in appearance, lots of pent up anger brewing just under the surface.  On the cusp of being the good kid or the trouble maker, could go either way.  Willing to throw a punch. Giving his mother all sorts of headaches.  Can’t take your eyes off him.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).   1 day.

YOUNG REGGIE: Caucasian Male, 10-13yrs.  Waiting in the back of the family car, alone, when he overhears a horrible incident including gunfire.  Curious at first, then, terrified.  YOUNG REGGIE is a wounded soul, but, able to look in the eyes of those who have caused the pain.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent). 1 day.

BASEBALL BOY: Caucasian Male, 10-13yrs. Must be able to wind up to pitch a baseball naturally.  Living the little league dream! Bright and shining star of the team.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).   1 day.

STEVE STEIN: Caucasian Male, mid 40s. REGGIE’S agent. Jewish. Great dresser, always in a sharp suit, no tie.  A bouncy, ass-kisser, who knows which asses to kiss.   Is truly happy for REGGIE’S success, and enjoys the hell out of negotiating the best contract possible for him.  Continually chirping in REGGIE’s ear, keeping REGGIE on track and on time.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).  1 day.

LEW KRAMER: Caucasian Male, 50s. Network President, authoritative and cold.  Regularly hires people he does not like or respect and doesn’t mind them knowing.  As long as they are making him money, all’s good, until he changes his mind.  Has no problem firing them either.  All in a day’s work.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent). 1 day.

CHURCH DAVIS: Caucasian Male, 70s.  Bow tie and clenched jaw.  Asks how your mother is, and genuinely wants to know.  His world and world view are very narrow, but he is king of that small kingdom and will never change.  Dinner at the club 2-3 nights a week.  Very proud of his grandchildren.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).  1 day.

CATTY DAVIS: Caucasian Female, 70s.  Proud to be Mrs. Davis.  Speaks only when spoken to, secretly has a mind of her own, that maybe only her hairdresser knows.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).  1 day.

CHIP CHADWICK: Caucasian Male, 30 – 40yrs.  Banker, basically older, more established version of his frat bro self.  Grew up with REGGIE.  Now a “super fan” who loves to say “he knew him when”.  Bit of a bull in a China shop, but mannered.  Regular at the country club bar.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent).  1 day.

SHELTON: Caucasian Male, mid 50s.  Stuffy with an educated Southern accent.  A stodgy Country Clubber.  Can be an a-hole when pushed.  Solid, stable, no drama on his watch.  Appearances matter, maybe more than reality.

$175/shoot day (+10% if agent). 1 day.
