Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Tai (Lead): Male, Asian-American, 21-40. PAID.

Greg (Lead): Male, African-American, 21-40. PAID.
A young-faced actor who has spent far too much of his acting career pandering to stereotypical roles of African-Americans, Greg recognizes the problems within the system but is unwilling to take the actions needed to break out of it, despite seeing more radical actions taken by his friend Asian-American friend, Tai. "Street Hustler" wardrobe, open to your interpretation. /// NOTE: Role was originally written for an African-American actor but we are opening the pool for additional multiracial or non-white talent to widen the potential pool of applicants, and will shift the script accordingly, as needed.
