Ian

Ian is awkward and slightly clumsy. He's waiting for a very important call which has made him anxious enough, now he has to deal with relentless prank calls. Ian does not deal with stress well and often carries his teddy bear around in times of need.

Males, aged 20 to 30

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Callum

Callum has been Ian's best friend since school. He's super energetic and always tries to support Ian while at the same time pranking him non stop. He also vlogs pretty much everything. Callum is a bit annoying and mostly a twat.

Males, aged 20 to 30

  • Acting experience: Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles

Various Prank Callers

Over the course of the short, Ian gets several prank calls. We need voice actors to play these parts. If cast, you will receive a mini script with your lines on.

The Important Phone Call

Must have a strong authority voice for this part. Will be sent lines after cast, and your voice will be edited into the scene.

Males, aged 40 to 60

Richard The Neighbour

There's a knock on the door, it's Richard The Neighbour who wants to tell Ian about the June edition of the neighbour newsletter. During this, Ian gets a phone call, it's either the really important call he's been waiting for or it's someone who thinks Ian's number is a sex hotline. Either way, when Ian answers it...hilarity ensures!

Richard The Neighbour talks in a really slow, boring tone. He has a blank expression most of the time and loves his newsletter!
