Role Description

Frank: (Lead) appears serene and calm, often to the extent that people think of him as distant and reserved, keeps his emotions more bottled in, has a more distant look in his face and eyes; think Joshua Malina, Henry Thomas, or Mark Ruffalo. At his core Frank is the sweetest guy but also incredibly insecure, reacts to possibly being hurt and feeling vulnerable through distancing himself emotionally, tries to not be emotionally invested in other people and in the world. But this detachment often leads him to look down on people’s emotional acting out and irrational behavior. This is something he is quite aware of, doesn’t like in himself and tries to change. Note: There is a scene where Frank is shirtless and in his underwear.
