Jack (Lead) – 20’s – 30’s – this is a labor intensive role. Must be a strong actor and stunt player.

Benji (supporting) – 20’s – 30’s – Lead henchman, speaking role, no physical requirements. He thinks he is the most cleaver person around. Tries often to be witty, but not one laughs at what he says. Playful, but can be stern once she is embarrassed

Dobson (supporting) – 30’s – 40’s – Boss of all henchmen (including Benji).speaking role. Clean cut, yet tough appeal, is actually witty, but gets to his point real quick. Pretty forward.

Mr. Clean (supporting) – 20’s – 30’s – speaking role. Right hand of Dobson. Physical role. Monotone, emotionless demeanor. A flat personality. Must have strong stunt player/fighter background

Chainz – (Co-Lead) – 20’s – 30’s – Old partner to Jack. Gangster urban type, very sarcastic even in serious times. Similar to the character of Simon Phoenix from “Demolition Man” (1996).
