Casting Call for TV Pilot “True Vice” [New Jersey] #casting

Posted January 12, 2015: reposted with updates

PROJECT TITLE: True Vice
CLASSIFICATION: Independent
STATUS: Non-Union
CATEGORY: Television
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Public access
PRODUCERS: Walter Henry Storricks
WRITER: Ellis Minatee
DIRECTOR: Ellis Minatee
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Everitt Productions
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: February 7th – March 7th
SHOOTING LOCATION: Philadelphia, PA

LOGLINE:

The alcoholic spawn of a Mafioso attempts to cope with his professional and personal struggles in this coming of age story.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Quentin Reynolds

Ethnicity: African American
Age: 25-30
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Quentin is a drug dealer whose older brother, Jerome, is a cop. He lives with his brother but prefers to have as little contact as possible with him. He considers his best friend, Ray, more of a family member than his own brother.

Personality: Quentin is quiet and modest most of the time, but can be condescending smart ass when he comes across stupidity or when he feels his intelligence is being insulted. Unlike Domenick, he is a leader not a follower. He is the most intellectual and when push comes to shove can be manipulating.

Raymond Muramoto

Ethnicity: Asian American
Age: 25-30
Height: 5’11 – 6’3

Ray is a pimp. A trade he took after his grandmother, Anna, retired from being a madam. His grandmother was the only person in his life he actually cared about until he was nine and met his best friend, Quentin Reynolds. Like Quentin, he wants nothing whatsoever to do with his family outside of his grandmother. When it comes to his employees, he does his best to do right by them. When it comes to a romantic relationship with women, he has no trouble whatsoever getting into their pants but doesn’t have (nor wants to have) the emotional concentration to sustain a relationship outside of the simple physical aspects. He would rather have a woman just be his friend or friend with benefits and intensely resists any kind of attempts to change his philosophy of the subject.

Personality: He is intensely sarcastic and blunt with generally everybody he encounters. He mistrusts everybody around him except, Quentin, and Anna. He does not care at all what people think about him and usually says exactly what is on his mind. The two people he does care about he is intensely protective of and will go to extreme lengths to correct whatever has been done wrong to them. Underneath his tough, hard, and manipulating exterior, he is very sentimental and mostly driven by emotion.
