Casting Call for Funny Or Die skit “The Telephone” – Los Angeles, CA

Casting Call Details:
Project: Seeking Actor 40s-60s for Funny Or Die skit / “The Telephone”
Location: Los Angeles, CA

I write & produce for our Funny Or Die page, “Weirdfellas.” (www.funnyordie.com/weirdfellas) I have a skit coming up about the first ever telephone call made by Alexander Graham Bell to his assistant, Watson. I need someone in their 40s-60s to play Graham Bell. Looking more for actors with improv and/or comedy experience generally. But even if you’re more of a straight arrow and think you have a good angle on this, I want to hear from you. (Look what Leslie Nielson did with Airplane, after all)

This skit has quite a bit of swearing in it, so you need to be ok with that. (It’s the whole goof of it) There are two other actors in it, it’s a period piece so I’m getting everybody fitted for costumes, and we’re going to shoot in an old museum up in Santa Fe on a Sunday in the next month or two, so it’s a bit of a road trip. (I’ll drive everybody) Should be a lot of fun, we always have a good time on our shoots, super easy guys to hang with. The actual shoot shouldn’t take more than 3 hours, tops.

The costumes, the drive, everything else is going to cost me a chunk. I’m just a working class fella and wind up putting most of my money into these things in the hopes of one day having our own TV show, so I can’t pay anybody. If that’s a problem, totally understand. But I promise it’ll be fun and a bunch of folks will see it and if you’re between gigs and want to get into something, I have this going on. Would love to have you. If you have an Youtube clips or links to your work as well, I’d be much obliged.

Thanks homies!
