Casting Call Details
No ethnicity specified for this role.
The film will require some singing & fake keyboard playing (which I will help you with). Bonus points if you can actually playing piano/keyboards.
MOOSE, aka. Mark Reubowitz, is 49. He is quiet and keeps mostly to himself. Very much the brooding artist or musician. He keeps his emotions inside. When let out, he is somewhat sarcastic though overall a nice genuine easy going guy. He's never had any real girlfriend for any amount of time. Him & Toasters did have a brief relationship as they were performing in 78/79 but Moose liked her more than she liked him. Even after all these years, he is bitter about it. He will put up with her antics for the band because there is still a longing for her.
He writes & records music on keyboards and has owned many over the years. He buys only Casio. When not doing music, he has been a painter for the last 30 years which has given him a liveable income. In Toasters 'N' Moose, he writes all the music, much of which jazzy funky pop. He loves the smooth sounds. As he does not perform much, he is afraid of messing up on stage so he pre-records the music onto the keyboard.
In 1979, musical duo "Toasters 'N' Moose" recorded their sole album and went on a short tour before breaking up that year. Now 30 years later, their old manager has reunited them to do a 3-day anniversary tour, consisting of crummy gigs in between their house in Monterey all the way to Sacramento.
