Matt Cannon is currently working on a comedy piece called Fidget. The script is complete so we are now on the look out for actors to play the main characters. Take a look at the character profiles and get in touch if you’re interested!
Please understand at this moment in time this is a none profit project. So we are funding the project and are looking for actors to take part on a expenses basis only. But it will be a great folio piece, and who knows where the journey could take us.
The story is based in Birmingham, around the life of a normal guy that’s always wanted to be a rap star. He has never had the image to be that ‘gangster’ and believes he hasn’t succeeded so far because he isn’t ‘bad enough’. In fact, he is a terrible rapper.
The story follows his attempt to make it to the top, with the help of his Manager and the friends he makes.
Frank is Fidget’s Manager, a ‘wannabe famous’ but talentless individual. He thinks he is slick and God’s gift to all women. A bit of a Dellboy, he sells anything and is addicted to eBay, buying everything from China. A classic conman, he takes pictures of other people’s property within their home and then sells them on eBay.
Frank has hormonal problems and due to the medication has small breasts and requires a training bra. This also means he has continuous erections LOL.
Sonia is Fidget’s girlfriend, who dreams of being a famous party It Girl. She has the typical WAG style and is a wannabe glamour model. She might not really like him but she puts up with Fidget in the hope that one day he will make it big.
Cleaner, Fidget’s friend, is a very bright chap. He is a DJ but specializes in cleaning clubs with very distasteful and rubbish music to clear out the drug taking clientele. He notoriously ‘passes stuff on’.
Tanya is a clever business woman in her late 20s/early 30s who runs her own very special tanning salon. She is also a wannabe It Girl but is a very clued up woman. She is a real inspiration, a major risk taker and doesn’t put up with other peoples rubbish.
We are also looking for lots of extras to take up other parts.
No longer than a two day shoot to start with!
Thank you for your time, all the best, Matt.
