We held casting auditions for the film today at the Shoreline Historical Society, and thanks to the hard work of Greg and Joey, saw the impressive talents of about forty actors. We had a wealth of talented and attractive performers for the female lead, but much fewer for the male roles. Happily, two of the guys that gave it a shot were nothing short of electrifying. We have one more day full of ac-TING to get through, but by the time the sun sets on Sunday the film should be fully cast.
It was interesting to see the sides from a script I’ve read at least five times in various stages read by people with the chops to actually bring Greg’s characters to life. It was even more interesting to realize that the jokes in the script are still funny to me. I sure hope that means the script has the legs we hope it does.
