Role Description

Sam Coleman: (Lead) a bespectacled and diminutive cop, on probation for going too far above
and beyond the call of his municipal duties. This is his last chance to make up for his past mistakes. Classically nerdy with an almost crippling social anxiety, possesses a heart of gold, gilded in his deep desire for romance. Having
been bullied all his life, his instinct is to protect the bullied, so despite his fears, he does contain a strength that will surprise everyone, himself most of all, when the time is right. Very comedic, this actor should have experience in comedic roles, improv experience preferred.

BIALYSTOCK
(to Bloom, quietly)
Have you been there all this time?

BLOOM NODS.

BIALYSTOCK
And did you see and hear everything?

BLOOM NODS.

BIALYSTOCK
Then what do you have to say for
yourself?

BLOOM
Uh ... uh ... ooooooops?

BIALYSTOCK
(shouts)
Who are you? What do you want?
Why are you loitering in my hallway?
Speak, dummy, speak! Why don't you
speak?

BLOOM
Scared. Can't talk.


BIALYSTOCK
All right. Get a hold of yourself.
Take a deep breath, let it out
slowly and tell me who you are.

BLOOM
(breathes deeply.
Words tumble from his
mouth as he exhales)
I'm Leo Bloom, I'm an accountant,
I'm from Whitehall and Marks, I was
sent here to do your books and I'm
terribly sorry I caught you with
the old lady.
(he has run out of breath)


BIALYSTOCK
"Caught you with the old lady."
Come in, Mr. Tact.

BIALYSTOCK
So you're an accountant, eh?

BLOOM
(timidly)
Yes sir.

BIALYSTOCK
Then account for yourself! Do you
believe in God? Do you believe in
gold? Why are you looking up old
lady's dresses? Bit of a pervert,
eh?

BLOOM
Sir, I ...

BIALYSTOCK
How dare you condemn me without
knowing all the facts.

BLOOM
But sir, I'm not condem ...

BIALYSTOCK
Shut up. I'm having a rhetorical
Conversation

BLOOM
But if we're caught, we'll go to
prison.

BIALYSTOCK
(sensing victory, he
marshals his forces
for the final assault)
You think you're not in prison now?
Living in a grey little room.
Going to a grey little job. Leading
a grey little life.

BLOOM
You're right. You're absolutely
right. I'm a nothing. I spend my
life counting other people's
money -- people I'm smarter than,
better than. Where's my share?
Where's Leo Bloom's share? I want,
I want, I want, I want everything
I've ever seen in the movies!

BIALYSTOCK
You bet your boots, Leo. It's
Bialystock and Bloom -- on the rise.
Upward and onward. Say, you'll
join me. Nothing can stop us.

BIALYSTOCK OFFERS HIS HAND TO BLOOM.

BLOOM
(shouting at the top
of his lungs)
I'll do it! By God, I'll do it!

BLOOM GRABS BIALYSTOCK'S HAND AND SHAKES IT FIRMLY.

BIALYSTOCK
This is where we belong, Leo. On
top of the world. Top of the world!
