Role Description

Makai: (Supporting) role of the jungle girls' "kid correspondent," Makai has contacted the girls because he found a bizarre photo of an animal that he wants them to identify, doing research in the library on his own volition and winds up helping the girls in their journey, from Hawaii, smarter than he really should be, given his age, yet not at all condescending, the kind of nerd that rules the world, humbly. Note: Should be an attractive male actor who looks to be in 8th or 9th grade, should still have a soprano voice, think Hawaiian Justin Bieber.

In doing research on some
exotic species from Indonesia, I came across
a photograph of a strange but freaking CUTE creature
jammed into the pages of a book.
Judging by its hands, I assume
that it must be a primate.. but
I thought primates were vegetarians!
This guy definitely has a CRICKET in his mouth!!!
What IS this thing?

MAKAI

MAKAI

MAKAI
Wow! Thanks guys! Now I can
