As many of my loyal reader(s) know, two weeks ago today, I booked a day player role on Comedy Central for the upcoming "Onion Sports Network". I did this through my legit agency. I love them over there. They are so kind and accessible, additionally I feel as if, and have always felt, that they "get me."
They don't just see a large white guy, they see who I really am in real life and submit me for work accordingly. Any agent can see a 6-3 245 pound large framed dude and think "Great! I can submit him for cop roles!" Not this agency, here is what they submitted me for yesterday - I think it seems like a great role that I can blow the top off of.
[CHARLIE] (late 20s-early 30s) Paul's best buddy. Jocular, funny, overbearing, seething. Ostensibly smart and lovable, but with an undercurrent of malignancy and anger. Enjoys a bit of danger, and feeds his best friend's paranoia. (LEAD/ STRONG SUPPORTING)
BUT WHAT IS THE MOVIE ABOUT, PHILLYRAY?!?!? Oh, right....

SYNOPSIS: PAUL is a young, gifted, aimless PhD candidate at Yale University. He's just moved in with his competent, pragmatic girlfriend, Jen, and is struggling to complete his dissertation. There's just one snag: as Paul is unpacking his belongings, he discovers that something has been left behind - a battered old book that contains the notes he needs to complete his writing. He will have to retrieve it from his former roommate - the obstinate, casually sinister NANCY. What should be a simple errand becomes intolerably difficult, and egged on by his best friend CHARLIE, Paul soon becomes increasingly consumed with the retrieval of his book. Caught up in a web of perceived injustice, Paul's relationship and career begin to unravel, and he finds himself rushing headlong into a thresher of emotional torment and physical punishment.
