The character is a student of Spanish; ideal candidate is somebody who is reasonably proficient in Spanish but doesn’t look particularly Latino. Must be able to speak Spanish fluently/proficiently.

Jack Sides 2

DULCE’S PAPA:
Papa turns his attention back toward Jack.
PAPA
Ahora bien, estas son las reglas básicas...
JACK
…las reglas básicas...?
PAPA
Ground rules. Con respecto a mi hija.
JACK
With respect to your daughter.
PAPA
Sí.
Ticking them off on his fingers...
PapA (CONT'D)

Uno: Tratarla como una dama.
JaCK
Like a lady. Naturalmente! Like a QUEEN I will treat her.
PAPA
Dos: No mantenerla fuera tarde.
JACK
Right! Home early. She needs her beauty rest. I mean, that is, I'm not saying she NEEDS beauty rest NOW, cuz she's beautiful ALREADY, but what I'm saying--
PAPA
(interrupting)
Y tres: No se la lleven al callejón del pecado.
JACK
(confused)
"El callejón del pecado...?" The Alley of Sin? Is that a metaphor, cuz I'm not familiar--
PAPA
(interrupting)
Don't take her there.
JACK
Sí. I mean "no".
Jack pulls himself together to present a mature front.
JACK (CONT'D)
(in a manly voice)
Señor, usted puede confiar en mí. Estoy sobrio. Soy responsable.
Dulce appears, looking radiant.
DuLCE
Buenas noches, Jack.
Jack, still maintaining his "manly" affect, turns and sees Dulce. An uncomfortably LONG beat, during which his expression doesn't change. Then he lets out a sigh like a wounded camel.
JACK
(Sigh....)
