Experienced SAG Actor/Director:
This is a SAG Independent Film..you do not have to be a member of SAG but SAG members will be paid FIRST after expenses when the film is sold. SAG member must be current and will receive first consideration for casting. NonUnion members are welcome. Under the Independent Agreement, you will not receive SAG compensation nor do you receive a SAG voucher..but, unlike other nonunion members in nonSAG films you will receive credit for appearing in a SAG film. Please understand that Under the independent agreement there is no way you will receive a SAG voucher. It's not my idea. It's the SAG contract. Casting Note: Characters identified as native american do not have to be Native American but the darker characters will be the bartender and Grandmother and the young child. The Natives represented here are modern day Americans and may be very caucasion looking but Native Americans, especially members of the Cherokee Nation and members of SAG will receive a "first look" for casting. For example, Wilma Mankiller is a past Chief of the cherokee Nation, but her "coloring" is very very light... These characters are all southern with the exception of the rock star and her highly-paid rich lawyers and assistants.
Bartender- male - (a lead character)-- 40s, dark hair, Native American preferred
Tribal lawyer, male, (Lead) - 40s, alcoholic, somewhat of a hasbeen but thoughtful and proud
Tribal lawyer, female, sister to the male lead - late 30s, go-getter but not a feminist
Native American Grandmother - 60s and up - fun role - old and weathered but wise
Native American Child - female - age 8 to 10 - cute , cuddly and needy...a reservation ragdoll child.
Female Rock star- hot 20s - BLOND - must be willing to dye hair if you're not already blond if you get the role...very few lines but a very central charater and must be believeable...think Paris Hilton or Miss Teen USA in Run Lola Run only with brains and less slutty.. spiked hair but not too awful punk
Judge - Male or Female but probably a Male role - if you're female and have the look or can "sell it", you'll get it. 60s, weathered, no nonsense, corporate,
Rockstar's Lawyer Male - 50s, 6 feet tall and up, No nonsense, smooth, Like Jame's Wood's character on Shark only better looking.
Rockstar's Lawyer Number two - Male or female - slightly younger than above...similar...Female is HOT
Rockstar's Lawyers' Legal assitants....Featured Background - Hot Females 20s
TVNews Anchor Male - caucasian - think 10 p.m. NBC, CBS -- local Memphis
News Anchor Female - African American or Oriental - same as above only Hot
Field News Reporter - Female 20s, Hot, typical newby blond or oriental type more interested in her hair than in the news..."like Oh m' God - I'm on TV"
TV News Crew - Featured background = videographer, boom mike
