The Characters

These are the major characters in the film.  The actors pictured are not currently attached to the project, but we will be approaching them for these characters.  We show them here to give an idea of what our cast might look like, as well as to give a better insight into the characters.

CHARLIE SIMMONS

Charlie, the lead in our film, is your Average Joe type.  Moderately handsome, but not a head-turner.  He’s got a quick wit and sense of humor, a dreamer and a romantic. He wants to be that fun, cool guy that is in charge of every situation but lacks confidence to really pull it off.  He’s incredibly loyal to his friends and would do anything for someone he loves.  In fact, he’s currently unemployed because he left a high-paying corporate job in St. Louis so that he could be with Heather, the love of his life.

He has an interesting belief that all the world’s answers can be found in music; that whatever music is playing at any certain point will tell you what decisions you should make.

First Choice – Adam Scott (Party Down, Parks and Recreation, Leap Year)

Alternates:

Patrick Fugit

Adam Brody

MACE GIDDINGS

The ultimate Dallas Douchebag.  Very into his looks, projects a ridiculous amount of confidence and machismo.  A $30,000 millionaire.  Always out.  Very smooth.  Knows everybody.  A social butterfly.  He’s everything Charlie hates, and it drives him insane that Heather once dated him – even more so that she’s remained friends with him.  Projects an arrogance and sliminess, but is actually very insecure and needs everybody to like him.  Will do anything to keep someone from hating him.  Ultimately a very decent guy who needs to find himself.

First Choice:  Scott Speedman (Underworld, The Strangers)

HEATHER GREEN

Heather is the love of Charlie’s life.  He would do anything for her, and turned his entire life upside down for a chance to be with her.  She is extremely sweet, though can be a bit tone-deaf in relationships.  She’s brutally honest and doesn’t hold back, and hurts without meaning to -often not realizing it until the shoe is on the other foot.  While she’s fully capable of taking care of herself, she conveys a vulnerability that makes people want to protect her.  It’s easy to see why the idea of her being taken advantage of would tear Charlie in two.

First Choice: Mandy Moore (A Walk to Remember, Saved!, License to Wed)

JACKIE

Jackie’s a tough cookie.  She’s Tom’s manager, who recently lost her job as a web developer and took on her managing job with a vengeance, soon making Tom’s band Love in Vain extremely popular online.  Very temperamental, can fly off the handle at any moment, but ultimately all about her friends and would do anything for them.  A rock and roll chick that’s loaded with ambition, so much so that it gets away from her sometimes.  She’s a lesbian who keeps falling for the wrong girls, and gets her heart broken easily.

First Choice:  Pauley Perrette (NCIS)
