FEATURE FILM CASTING (NON UNION)

MJ aka Master

Late 20s, Early 30s / African American

MJ is an aspiring journalist. Well spoken and highly educated, MJ is often seen carrying a pen and pad, vintage film camera, or his trusty pocket recorder. With an old soul, at times he can portray strong introverted characteristics. Inspired by the days of past, MJ has a love for the purities of life. He has an appreciation for conservatisms, career, American dream, and particularly falling in good ol' fashion love.

Everything is shaping up perfect for MJ, after his long-term girlfriend accepted his proposal for marriage. The life he imagined will, however, come to a jolting halt when he is hired to write for a prestigious entertainment publication. His first assignment is to write about a beautiful, up-and-coming singer. This project will prove to be more difficult than expected. Spending much of his day around this new woman, MJ’s universe will eventually flip upside down.

Justine Waters

Late 20s, Early 30s/ African American

Following the footsteps of her father, the late great guitarist James Waters, Justine is a talented musician in her own right. The young bohemian is a rising star in the Jazz community and is looking to spread her talents to a broader audience.

Growing up, surrounded by the industry, Justine has developed a false idea of happiness. Clouded by money, sex, and lots of drugs, she is quickly losing her grip on reality. At a young age, Justine is falling fast.

While recording her debut album, Justine runs across a journalist named MJ. Justine's spoiled shell does not register well with MJ, at first. However, things quickly change as the two realize their attraction towards each other is not merely physical.

Both Justine and MJ have their plans for life, neither includes falling in love with a stranger.

Cassandra

Late 20s, Early 30s/ Ethnically Ambiguous

Having dated since college, Cassandra is the beautiful girlfriend of MJ. The two have been through a lot together and they appear to have the perfect relationship.

Cassandra can be conniving, secretive, and comes with a stern ego. She knows what she wants and shoots for her goals, like a straight arrow. Her goals appear to line up adjacent to those of MJ, which makes the announcement of their impetuous engagement not so surprising. Life with MJ is going to be amazing, if she can overcome the other woman.

Malcolm

Nonetheless, MJ needs Malcolm, especially when he is being pulled between the two women in his life.
