We are casting five roles, four males and one female, for an original short film titled “The Ransom”, which is being produced by the Cambridge Community Television Drama Club. This film is a Comedic Thriller, so we are looking for actors who have had previous experience with comedy and/or Improv. The roles that are available are listed below.

John – No, no I’m a terrible father. I was late to pick him up last night because I was getting a lap dance at the strip club.

Male Detective – I really thought I would be an actor but I had crippling stage fright and terrible anger issues, so I decided to be a cop instead.

Female Detective – Yes, he is probably going to tell you to meet him somewhere. You could maybe ask him if you could speak with your son.

Friend #1 – I want to be a professor or a teacher. I think that would be the best way to meet girls. I would be that guy they can depend on.

Friend #2 – With shows like Law and Order and CSI, its surprising people even attempt kidnapping anymore.
