SEEKING TALENT
PAUL, 28-45, white, man
Oliver’s sleazy landlord; says uncomfortable things, but most people brush it off. Almost charming, but not quite–a washed up fraternity brother.

POLICE OFFICER, 30-60, open ethnicity, man
By-the-books man of the law. Not understanding after Oliver’s attack, closed-minded and unhelpful. Not cruel, but extremely professional.
