Casting Call:

Chris (23) — Supporting. Male. Black/African-American. Bubbly, dorky and just out of college, Chris is the sentimental sort who wants to settle down with his boyfriend who he’s been dating for the past four years. He has a sort of traditional streak and won’t get officially engaged until his boyfriend Kevin invites his father to be a part of their engagement.

Bearded Guy (20-40) — Hits on Kevin at a gay bar.
