Starz Casting Call
CASTING CALL: USA & Canada
Seeking Lead Role for pilot for new STARZ TV series due to shoot in ATLANTA in Sept 2018. P***Y VALLEY
The series is a gritty drama set at a strip club in the Mississippi Delta!
Casting for one of our lead roles! This character is black LGBTQIA.
Open to professional actors and non-professionals. Union or non-union. Open to real individuals in the community as well! Please pass along to anyone you know who might be a great fit!
As this character is non-binary, there’s room for interpretation of exactly who Uncle Clifford is. Is she/they a drag queen? Is she/ they transgender? Is she/they in between? Looking for actors in the industry, but also REAL PERFORMERS from around the country (USA & CANADA).
[UNCLE CLIFFORD] Late 30s is our ideal (but please do not limit based on age), African American, “The HBIC.” Sharp-tongued, wise, and always serving us with a side of extra-extra, the owner of the finest shake junt in the Dirty Delta is a gender fluid hustler with a heart of gold-plating. Masculine and feminine in equal measure, She/they doesn’t just make the rules—she/they enforces them with a set of perfectly manicured talons. Armed with little but their razor sharp wit and a face beat for the gawds, they’ll stop at nothing to protect their club and their girls from impending doom. A realist who takes their romance like a pinch of salt in cornbread, Uncle Clifford is rarely taken for a ride. But a longing for love exposes a vulnerability that proves to be a strength as they learns for the first time in their life to risk it all.
