Casting the low budget short film “The Last Date”. The project is a recreation of the opening scene from the film ’Happiness’ (1998, dir. Todd Solondz).

We’re looking for one female and one male actor for the leading roles.

ROLE: JOY
f, 23-35, fluent in English (any accent is OK), any looks will do; we can tweak some character traits based on the actors' personalities.

About Joy: Joy is kind and empathetic, but she's afraid of making close connections with new people. She's an adult but doesn't care about building a career because her parents support her financially. She cares about the planet and animals and tries to live sustainably. She's great at singing and composing music but doesn't recognize her own talent. She struggles to find a romantic partner because she's afraid to open up and share her life with a stranger.

*If you're interested, please send a couple of your headshots and showreels/videoclips if you have them. It would be a plus if you filmed yourself doing an improvisational speech as this character, describing your last date with the other character and expressing your thoughts about them.

About Andy: Andy comes from a rather poor family, and he worked really hard to get a good education and find a well-paid job that allows him to support his parents. His main life goals are to have financial stability and start a family. He struggles to find the perfect girl because he's self-conscious despite all his achievements in life. He's also a bit out of practice because he dedicated all his time to his work.
