Casting some small roles in a commercial we’re shooting for a soon to be released video game. It is a spoof of the infomercials you would see on TV late at night (i.e. Snuggy, Shamwow). The humor is not too vulgar (PG to PG-13 rating). We shouldn’t need any of the actors for more than 1-2 hours and this commercial is going to get heavy airplay on the internet. Here are the breakdowns for the actors we are looking for:
GAMER (male, age 50-80) – An older man dressed as a kid. He becomes
frustrated with the video game, chunks down the controller and pouts out
of the room.
SIAMESE TWINS (male, any age) – It would be ideal to have twins. We
don’t really have a look other than that in mind. If not twins, two
male actors around the same age with a similar look.
YOUNG GAMER (female, age 5-15) – A young, preferably Asian female. Cute
and able to express over-the-top comedic sadness.
COUCHMAN (male, age 60-80) – An older man who has seen better days. He
struggles to speak but managed to score a young trophy wife.
COUCHWOMAN (female, age 18-30) – Young, attractive, outgoing female.
The trophy wife of COUCHMAN.
VENUS (male, any age) – A man dressed as a woman. Any age is good. All
we ask is that you are comfortable in woman’s clothes and high heels.
SKINNY MAN (male, any age) – A tall, skinny (lanky) man. He lost 150
pounds using this amazing product. Must have a fit, energetic look.
Please send me a head shot and specify which role you would like to be
considered for and I’ll shoot over the script. It’s going to be a
goofy, fun shoot. Thanks!
