Casting and Crew Call for Comedy Horror Feature “Night of the Living Dong” [Chicago, IL] #casting #crewcall
Posted September 16, 2014
PROJECT TITLE: Night of the Living Dong
CATEGORY: Feature Film
SHOOTING LOCATION: TBD (Likely Chicago, IL)
Comedy-horror feature seeks two actors for lead roles – think “Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil.” Although the film will not begin production for 6 to 9 months, the actors are expected to participate in radio and media interviews, flash mob events, possibly on stage, and for other promotional appearances in character.
The feature film is titled “Night of the Living Dong.” A dildo possessed by Hitler’s soul wreaks havoc in a small Nebraskan sex shop. Todd and Micah, down on their luck, decide to get jobs at a local sex shop. Distracted by their apathy and fake boobs, a rambunctious evil lurks in their shadows unbeknownst to them. Todd and Micah with the help of a stripper, the Israeli secret service, an archeologist, and a plethora of sex toys will have to come together to defeat this evil once and for all.
CASTING THESE ROLES:
Todd is Jewish American, handsome, poorly groomed, poor hygiene, yet displays a sense of masculinity that makes the ladies swoon. He’s in fair shape with a small beer belly. Nice clothing, unkempt and unshaven. He’s outgoing and manipulative, the life of the party until he drinks too much and makes an ass of himself. He’s a bit of a perverted Casanova always on the lookout for a woman as sexually liberated as he. Todd never misses an opportunity to exploit his heritage. He sees himself as the unspoken leader of his and Micah’s twosome. Todd always wanted to achieve greatness and leave his mark on society, but he lacks self‐discipline and follow through.
Micah was raised solely by mother, whom he saw very little of because she worked multiple jobs. With no friends at school, Micah grew up spending much of his time in front of the television watching old VHS copies of Bollywood films. To make up for her absence mother spoiled him at every opportunity, ultimately making him into the man-child he is today. He made his first friend at 14 when he met Todd outside a grocery store selling marijuana stolen from his brother. They got high and feasted on day old donuts from a dumpster behind the store. They’ve been best friends ever since. Micah lives in the moment never hoping for very much — and his goals generally involve his next meal.
