Looking for a male lead for a paid gig

(Non-Union Only)

(Non-union only)
Looking for a male lead, in his 40s with a business casual (think J. Crew), well dressed, clean cut look for a non-speaking role. A little gray is OK.

Our urbane dad will be enjoying a night to himself at home. His wife and kids are out. He’s catching up on his favorite movies and tv shows on his brand new, state-of-the-art TV.
Again, this is a non-speaking role, so while there won’t be any lines to memorize, we just need someone who can dramatize this scene.

The first to outlaw slavery; the first to allow same-sex civil unions; etc. It is a state steeped in grassroots thinking and democracy. It is no wonder that a project such as Freedom & Unity: The Vermont Movie, which has brought together over 40 local filmmakers and historians, would develop out of this state.
