Role Description

Jess: (Lead) overweight (by Hollywood's definition); a computer programmer who is physically absolutely not model-sized; someone who could afford to lose anywhere from 20 to 40 pounds, smart, ironic, terribly self-deprecating, self-destructive in her choice of men, charming and flawed and human. Jess is a funny, vulnerable woman with a genius streak who is actually sexy, she just doesn’t know it. Yearning for family connection with the father she never knew, that need so great that she might sleep with him (or his imaginary self) to find that bond; she is equally avoiding coming to terms with her mother, since Jess thinks her mother has been disappointed in her all her life, so much so that Jess has internalized her mother’s disapproval and is quite literally haunted by it.
