Shades Of Strange Films is casting for their new production “Brilliant”

Shades Of Strange Films is casting for their new production
“Brilliant”. Brilliant is a story that poses the question: What if an
object, that possesses the ability to give the possessor higher thought,
has driven the progress of humanity ever since the beginning of
humanity? What if some of the most famous and infamous characters
throughout history have possessed this object? What if the current
person in possession, 72-year-old Morey Kay, is a moron? What would
happen to humanity? Morey is retiring his position and looking for an
apprentice to take his place.

Characters:

Morey Kay: White, 72, bumbling, non-intellectual, thin, and small
framed. Looking for someone who is either the age of Morey or some one
in their 50s that could be aged with makeup. Think William Hickey (look
him up).
