Actors Needed for Parody Feature Film
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Gender: Male and Female
Ethnicity: All ethnicities
Casting for a non-union parody feature film.
The movie is called "Mean Gays and 1 Jawbreaker" and it spoofs the films Heathers, Jawbreaker, Mean Girls and many others like The Shining, Carrie, Scream, The Craft, American Beauty, and many more. While it helps to be gay, it is not necessary. Also, for the main characters, because some of the leads are in their late 20s and early 30s. The rest of the main characters and principals should be in their late 20s or early 30s so as to keep consistency and so it "looks right". Extras can be early 20s.
There are many many roles and because it happens at a school, in a way it can be considered an ensemble piece as there are many opportunities for lines in several of the situations at the school. Besides the characters listed there are a few important scenes that will need background. There is a funeral scene, a Halloween party scene, and a prom scene so in addition to identifying what character you'd like to audition for, please also mention in your email if you have clothing for a funeral, a Halloween party(and please list costume...the sexier the better), and the prom scene (a suit or dress is preferred but if you have a dress shirt and tie that works too...but please specify). Also, there is a talent show section, so if you have a talent...singing, dancing, something odd and out there, please also mention that. This is deferred pay but will run the film festival circuit and I'm sure it'll do well there and be picked up for distribution because the three films it spoofs: Heathers, Jawbreaker, and Mean Girls are favorites and each was made a decade after another so this movie will be far reaching and the leads might become the next it stars in the LGBTQ film world.
Prototype for Regina George (Mean Girls), Heather, and Rose McGowan's character. Queen B(itch). Snarky, rude, mean! Leader of the Mean Gays.
Brandon (mid to late 20's-early 30s: 2nd in command of Mean Gays. More stylish and skinny than G. Is Reggie's right hand man. Does anything G commands and is always trying to impress him.

Trying to find himself and makes friends with the goths in school but also joins the mean gays. Discovers what it means to be a Mean Gay and at what cost to his friendships and relationships along the way. Will he continue to be mean, or will he be himself and be true.

There are lots of opportunities to have speaking lines as there are sections where there are testimonials so the more available you are in the group scenes, the more likely you can be given more lines and be featured more. So with your submission, please mention which character you'd like to audition for and include your headshot, resume, and reel (if you have it). Also, for some of the male parts, mention if you're OK with being shirtless, nude (front, back, whatever). I will reply with more detail about the other characters.
Send your resume, headshot, and reel (if you have one). Thank you!
