Casting directors are looking for guys with great comedic timing. The script calls for comedic individuals and duos for an upcoming alcohol campaign to be filmed in Toronto Canada at the end of January.
Comedy experience is a must. Improv experience is a (big) plus. The comedic chemistry between the two roles listed below is paramount. They are a duo and they need to have good vibes with each other. Imagine John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell in Step Brothers or Arnold and Danny Devito in Twins. Please let us know if you are a real comedy duo who works together. These characters are real comedic types but should not be played like animations or caricatures.
Casting Call Roles
Role #1 (Centaur): Male. Age range is 28 to 35 years old – MUST BE LEGALLY 25 AND OVER. Looking for someone with previous Mascot experience and/or good physical comedy or maybe even a dancer type. This person should be somewhat athletic or strong as they will be wearing this costume all day during set and walking in it. Top half of him is dressed like a Captain, but bottom half is dressed like a Mule. His human face makes him more charming, selfassured, yet slightly resentful of his mule body. He is more measured and in controlled then his Minotaur brother. TALENT MUST BE NO SMALLER THAN 5’9 AND NO TALLER THAN 6’1 AS THEY WILL BE IN A PRE MADE COSTUME.
Role #2 (Minotaur): PLEASE NOTE THIS ROLE WILL NOT BE SEEN ON CAMERA – ONLY HEARD. Male. Age range is 28 to 35 years old – MUST BE LEGALLY 25 AND OVER. This roles voice is very important since we don’t see his face. The characters top half of him is dressed like a Mule, but bottom half is half human. His mule top makes him stubborn and all though he has the body of a man, he is hindered by his hoof hands. His mule mind makes him a bit wilder than his brother. He throws himself into situations without thinking first. He has a chip on his shoulder because he feels his mule face makes him less handsome then his brother.
