Casting Actors for:
Show 1- “The Cobalt Canary”: Living in a city where crime has been declared illegal, two supper heroes try to find their place in the world.
Cobalt Canary: is a 20 something out of work super hero that is starting to loose it. He has been forced to work as a forklift operator now that he can not fight crime and is struggling to cope with the loss of action in his life.
Day Man: is a 20 something out of work super hero. He works as a dish washer in a diner and tries to stop Cobalt’s plan to get back into crime fighting.
Kim: Cobalt’s 20 something girlfriend and support group.
Liquor Store Dude: a store clerk who likes that there isn’t any crime and is annoyed by Cobalt’s angst.
News Anchor 1 & News Anchor 2: presenters of a news broadcast involving a segment on a ice skating chimp and a farewell including Happy No Crime Day.
Nerd 1 & Nerd 2: Two Emo kids that Cobalt mistakes as drug dealing criminals
Show 2- “Day One”: Challenged to choose between alcohol and his girlfriend, Charlie is forced to battle his demons and search for the meaning in life.
Charlie: is a twenty-five year old alcoholic. He works for an ad agency, making a good living for a guy his age. He’s fairly introverted, enjoying the company of his girlfriend, but perfectly content being by himself.
Veronika: is Charlie’s twenty-three year old girlfriend. She’s the opposite of Charlie – she goes to college, has many friends, is very outgoing and assertive. She has an insatiable lust for life and strives to experience everything it has to offer. Veronika loves Charlie, but tells him she’s leaving him if he doesn’t ease up with the alcohol.
Jack: is Charlie’s best friend. They’ve known each other practically their entire lives. Jack supports Charlie but is a little annoyed with his relationship with Veronika – he feels like a third wheel. Like Veronika, Jack is a student at college.
Charlie’s Dad: is a recovering alcoholic. As Charlie puts it, though, he was always a “fun drunk.” The dad is a character of knowledge and wisdom. He speaks from experience.
Charlie’s Mom: is passionate. She’s been through a lot with this family. Along with Dad, she’s very supportive.
