Casting Call Details
Jedburgh is a 40 to 50 year old chubby CIA "fixer/assassin" (not an assassin in the Jason Bourne sense but more of a fixer in the Michael Clayton sense with the addition of killing people for the CIA and other employers) who is hired by a classified nuclear research facility called Northmoor to eliminate various people who know about what led up to an intern's death/murder at the hands of assassins hired by Northmoor. Plus, Jedburgh is also supposed to keep tabs on the father of the murdered girl, Thomas Craven, as Craven investigates the reason and shadowy people who knew his daughter. But Jedburgh as a leg up on Northmoor: he has grown a conscience about his job, something he has never had before. One night he goes to Craven's house and tells him a big deal of information surrounding his daughter's murder as he, in Zen master fashion, begins to train Craven, an honest, Serpico-like cop, into a vengeful murderous investigative vigilante.
In this scene re-creation of the 2010 film "Edge of Darkness" by William Monahan (2006 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar Winner for THE DEPARTED) and Andrew Bovell, I am looking for two male leads, around 40 to 50 years of age, weathered appaearance, one slender, and one chubby.
This is a non-paying student film done for my undergraduate Director's Workshop class as part of the RTF program of the University of Texas at Austin. Auditions will be held at the UT-Austin campus, more specifically the CMB building (as part of the College of Communications building), Studio 4A on the fourth floor, on SUNDAY September 12th and SUNDAY September 19th.
