    I have an awesome storyline that involves Voight’s character. I would love to talk to the writer’s about it. I know he is very complex and it is a very intricate story.

    Why is it when I try to send my information to the cpdbackground.S7@gmail.com it keeps coming back? Is the problem on my end? It happened last time I tried to apply to be on. I really want to try to get on these shows!
