A group of highly entertaining characters (Josh, Claire, Paul and Gina) join him for the adventure of a lifetime. Though the show is set in present day, you will find yourself enjoying a lot of 90's nostalgia. Prepare to laugh. HARD. *(Adult Humor on a PG-13 to a very soft R-rated level)

ANNIE: Supporting Speaking (Female - Late 20’s) Quirky, attractive, girl-next-door, meets Corey and becomes part of a comedic love triangle. She loves 90’s music, movies – a bit of a fast talker. An example would be “Anna” from the TV show The OC. Two episodes and will be in Season 2.
TEACHER: Featured Speaking (Male – 40’s – 50’s) We need a man who can look/act like the character Mr. Hall from the movie Clueless. One episode.
MORMON ELDERS: Featured Speaking (Male – 20-30) We need two. Must be clean cut and clean shaven. One episode.
DAVID McCALL: Supporting Speaking (Male – 30-35) Guy-next-door turned stalker. Prefer quirky, eccentric opposed to creepy. Need to have great comedic timing and facial expressions. One episode and one cameo. Potential for season two.
LORI: Supporting Speaking (Female – 25-35) Lesbian who goes on a date with one of our lead cast. In two episodes. Would like a female who resembles one of our lead actors, Tristan David Luciotti (www.tristandavidluciotti.com).
CHERRY: (Female - Caucasian 25-30) Corey's sister. She is an eccentric hippy with colorful hair. Definitely a comic relief character as she can check on the aura of the situation at any given time while helping you recycle properly. Minimum of one episode and potential for Season 2.
BARRY: Featured Speaking (Male 20-35) Looking for a Jack Black type – great comedic timing - think of his character from the movie High Fidelity. One episode.

VICKY: Featured Speaking (Female 35-45) Woman at a party who emotionally connects (hint of flirtation) with one of our female leads. You will have a couple of lines. One episode. Potential for Season 2 appearance.
AMBER: (Female - 15-20) Lots of attitude and eye rolling - personality matching that of Amber from the movie Clueless. Must pass as a High School student. You will have one line in one episode.
COREY'S 90's MOM: (Female - Caucasian 35-40) The typical TV sitcom mother. She will appear in the year 1997. Two lines in one episode.
FEATURED ROLES, POSSIBLY SPEAKING:
COREY'S 90's STEP-FATHER: (Male - African American 35-40) He will appear with Corey's mom in the year 1997. He swoons over the mother. No lines, but heavily featured in one scene in one episode.
YOUNG COREY: (Male - 15-18) Needs to be able to pass for a younger version of one of our lead actors, Tristan David Luciotti (www.tristandavidluciotti.com). Must pass for High School age. You will lip sync a line and be heavily featured in one scene in one episode.
COUGAR: (Female - 60+) We need a sexy, older woman to flirt with one of our lead actors. One line minimum in one episode.
DJ: (Male or Female - 20-35) Would be great if you had your own turntables/headphones and/or experience as a real DJ. One episode.
SERVER: (Male or Female – 20-55) Not fussy on age/gender/race/body type for this role. You may have a line. One episode.
DATE GUY: (Male – 25-35) Looking for a nerdy type – nervous, awkward. Will be on a date with one of our leads. You may have a line. One episode.
TICKET CLERK: (Female - 16-25) Bored with her job – sarcastic – great facial expressions - zero customer service. You do have lines. One episode.
TICKET GUY: (Male - 25-35) Sells tickets on the street. Scruffy looking - typical sleezy salesman. Multiple lines - One episode.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: (Male and Female) We need people who can pass for High School students. 10 total for one episode. Janet Wong will be featured.
SKATEBOARD GUY: (Male - 14-25) He hits the lead character and then takes off. Typical punk.
