Role Details:

Gang Leader (Lead) age 19-24

There is no pay for this role.

This role is open to non-union members.



Ethnic Look:

The "Gang Leader" is one of the leading villains in the series storyline. He is charismatic, powerful and extremely dangerous. Like most inner-city gangbangers, he deals in drugs and thievery, usually employing the impressionable neighborhood youth to carry out simplier crimes, such as carjackings and convenience store holdups. With his 'senior' underlings, he is capable of plotting more sophisticated crimes such as jewel heists and bank robberies. As a masterful criminal, he has amassed a fortune and is an infamous 'celebrity.' Naturally, he flaunts his wealth in every way (clothing, furnishings, vehicles), but he carries himself as a professional businessman with a quiet, brooding demeanor.

We're in need of a light-complexioned African-American male with striking features for this role. Must be willing to wear special effects makeup, custom contact lenses and temporary hair dye.

Project Details:
