Role Description

Al: (Lead) has Eastern European Jewish features, a street-smart man thrust by life’s circumstances into the unusual (for his family) role of a door-to-door insurance salesman, loan shark and a small time crook, in which he has to use his wits rather than formal education to survive; a gregarious man who lives for the moment and enjoys the life of conspicuous consumption; drives a Caddy convertible, dresses in flashy clothes, frequents strip joints and clubs and is a big music (R&B, soul, funk and disco) fan; possesses the physical presence of someone who can defend himself physically (weighing over 200 lb., over 6 ft. tall) but the features of his face betray a man who is intelligent and not naturally aggressive; instead of violence, prefers to use the tools of his street charm, humor and psychological manipulation to achieve his goals; does not have the typical menacing appearance of a “tough guy” in most scenes but he is seen in dream sequences as a “larger than life” clownish caricature of the super hero from the 1970s action movies.
