Role Description

Josh: (Lead) a bit of a douche who gets his come-uppance. He's a married man sleeping with as many women as he can. He's a bit sexist, a bit homophobic, and somewhat macho. There is genuine-ness and decency within him, but he is focused mostly on getting laid, and will stop at very little and will lie through his teeth to get the woman in bed. He is a man of privilege and entitlement, having grown up the son of a Senator. He is used to getting what he wants and his way, and reacts badly when that changes. Must be able to play sleazy, assertive/aggressive, and macho. Must have or be able to do an American accent convincingly. Director states: "Nudity is required. If you are not comfortable with nudity, playing a sex scene, and frank sexual discussion and adult language, then you will not want to play this role. You do not need to be uber-worked out in your physique. It is actually somewhat preferable that the actor not be in incredible shape or incredibly cut, as it adds to his believability as the character, so no shame huskier guys."
