Casting Call

Thank You For Your Interest: Auditions Are Now Closed

If you live outside of Los Angeles you must have you’re own equipment and a suitable place to record your lines. Please record your auditions in similar conditions to how you would record final takes, as recording quality will be a factor.

If you are living in Los Angeles and do not have the correct equipment or suitable recording area, you may use internal computer microphones. If chosen for a role on the show you will need to set up an in-person recording schedule with us.

MAIN CAST

Walter Mix
Male, 40s. Any race. Possibly British.
The shortcut to approaching Walter as a character is to take equal parts RDJ’s Tony Stark, Indiana Jones and Groucho Marx. BAM! Shortcut! Want the long way? Walter enjoys being the opposite of whatever the situation calls for. He’s serious when the mood reads silly and silly when the situation calls for serious.

Whitney
Female, early to mid 20s. Any race. Possibly British.
She is whip smart, but youthful and enthusiastic. Though she isn’t a detective she often participates in investigations in an integral way. She also is tasked with keeping Walter alive as his mouth writes checks his butt can’t cash. (Whitney and Walter do *not* have a romantic relationship.)

Carmen
Female, early to mid 30s, Hispanic.
Wealthy, with a slight detachment from the real world and the way it works. Though not a snob, her sheltered life affords her a limited understanding of the working world. Her husband has gone missing and she has hired Walter Mix to find him.

Barton
Male, mid to late 30s, African-American.
He is very much the idealist and often misses the obvious due to lack of foresight not intelligence. Very much the kind who sees himself a righteous and true hero.

Louise
Female, late 30s to early 40s, WASP-y.
She is a character in a radio serial soap opera and married to Donald. She and her husband are caught in a loop of a scene in the show. Their “reality” is breaking apart and they a becoming aware of their fabricated existence. Because of that, please give multiple takes of Louise’s lines, with different motivations in mind.

Donald
Male, late 30s to early 40s, WASP-y

He is a character in a radio serial soap opera and married to Louise. He and his wife are caught in a loop of a scene in the show. Their “reality” is breaking apart and they a becoming aware of their fabricated existence. Because of that, please give multiple takes of Donald’s lines, with different motivations in mind.

SUPPORTING CAST

Officer Gans
Mid 20s, any race/gender
LAPD Evidence clerk. Gans is very much the aw’shucks sidekick archetype. Lovable and seemingly innocent. The type who could insult you so kindly you’d never suspect it.

Officer Keets
30s, any race/gender
LAPD beat cop. Keets is a bit of a blowhard asshole but not without their own charming qualities. Not too bright but far from dumb.

Detective Joy
40s, any race/gender
LAPD Lead Detective. Joy is all business with little room for self-awareness or humor. Very much all about the job.

Doug Kowalski
Male, 40s, any race.
Head of the primary crime family running things in LA. Doug is very cool-headed and even in his demeanor. There is something distant and soulless in his voice.

Missy
Female, 20s, any race.
Spokeswoman for Spishak home products. There is a sheen and facade to her demeanor. Yet there is the “real” Missy hiding somewhere in there.

Slick
Male, 40s, any race.
Spokesman for Spishak home products. There is a sheen and facade to his demeanor. No matter what he will not drop the corporate shill act.

Trudy
Female, late 30s, any race.
Neighbor/handywoman to Carmen and her husband. She is a bit gruff and plain speaking. A straight talking blue collar woman.

Lillian
Female, early 30s, African-American
Holistic doctor, younger sister to Barton and fraternal twin to Archie. She is a bit more grounded and realistic than her other siblings. She just may be the most normal of any of the characters that occupy this world. SIDES
