Character Descriptions and Notes:

VIDEO SUBMISSIONS – We will be doing a video pre-read of these roles first, before calling in any actors.  Please use the links provided for each role below to submit your tape by the submission deadline.  We’re looking for comedic tape – so a comedic reel, or any other type of light comedy material, submitted by video would be great.  Examples: actor reels highlighting comedy performances, other commercial tape from a comedic spot, performing a comedic monologue on camera, etc.  Any tape is fine – even shot on cell phone (as long as it’s clear) will work.  There is almost no dialogue in these spots (so comedic timing is essential).  Spot description and copy can be found here – http://tinyurl.com/hondacopy.
