Bald Actor Wanted For Short Film About a Rock Band
The movie is based on the book "Diary of a Rock Star' by Paul Chiles Bown and Sebastian Molino about two friends who decide to put a rock band together sending them on a trajectory they never expected to be on.
From ads in papers and ‘telephone ear’ syndrome to the frustrations of dealing with clueless applicants, auditions with people who would have done far better to stay at home, dealing with attitudes and idiocy, leading to a sheet of paper full of expletives, things roll along. Crazy guitarists with out-of-tune guitars, amps that blow up, all in an effort to get somewhere. This is a humorous, light-hearted account of a band starting a zero and following them on the way to success, all the while taking the reader on the journey through the eyes of the musician.
Specifics: Ideally should be 5'8" - 5'10", bald or very nearly, fair or olive skin, slim to medium build, clean shaven, and should have or be capable of speaking with a west London accent. Age-wise must look in the 27 to 35 range.
Image preferred for the part: Scruffily dressed in brown corduroy trousers, brown shoes a tatty, saggy old multi-coloured jumper and equally tatty shirt.
Character description: Ray is a wannabe singer but doesn't want to put any real work into it. Seemingly obsessed with just "jamming" (improvising songs on the spot), he has an attitude that he has all the answers and everything that goes wrong is always someone else's fault. He is a control freak and wants his own way all the time. He believes himself to be a very good talker and able to convince others to do what he wants though when that fails he tends to resort to a brute-force approach of trying to force his ideas on others. One day he auditions for a local rock band and things don't go quite as he expected.
