Casting Call for Independent Feature Film “BearCity 2” (New York, NY)

Casting Call Details:
Synopsis:
BearCity 2 is a hirsute “Sex and the City,” following the funny, romantic, and occasionally dramatic adventures of our familiar characters, a group of “bears” and “cubs” in New York City. Tyler and Roger live as boyfriends in Roger’s very plush penthouse in the trendy meat packing district. Roger has settled firmly into domestic life while Tyler, now 23, is getting a little… restless. Michael, our big mama bear, has become a sought-after “heavyweight” Broadway producer and has invested his earnings in his hot, Latino boyfriend, Carlos’ dream of opening a gay-sports bar in Manhattan. Our beloved Brent and Fred find themselves at opposite ends of the Bear Pride spectrum. Fred is excited about the chance to shoot a bear documentary, while Brent has had his fill of woofs, stuffed bears and flannel shirts. Can this documentary be the key to bringing this couple closer or will Fred’s reluctance to commit finally push Brent away? When Roger pops the question, and a reluctant Tyler accepts, the gang is thrust into a wild ride towards a wedding ceremony at the closing of Bear Week in Provincetown, MA. Can these couples hold their relationship together with 3000 bears, a foam party and a few ex-boyfriends standing in the way? Or will true love prevail? BearCity won several awards at festivals, including the LA Outfest Grand Jury Award for Outstanding Actor in a Feature.
