Audition for PRIORITIES on November 7th

On November 7th, I will be reading for the role of an FBI agent in the film PRIORITIES from directors Thomas Gonzalez and Davon Howard.

This is a character description of Agent Harry, who I will be reading for:

Agent Harry is a seasoned CIA agent who is helping a defector flee to America. In the first part of the film, Agent Harry is wearing plain clothes when he is helping the defector to not alert the authorities that he is an agent (in other words, not wearing the typical "secret-agent-suit").

Harry is an old-fashioned kind of guy, he's vivacious, gregarious, flirtatious and somewhat of a chauvinist. He's quick with the jokes, he has a preference for bawdy, risque and edgy humor. As an agent, he's a daredevil: firey and virile, he takes on torture as a challenge rather than a threat, to him danger is not only apart of the job but the best part. He became an agent because it was the most dangerous job he could think of and it allows him to travel the world, gaining access to the world's most beautiful and exotic women. He delivers his lines with absolute confidence, even in the face of danger or pain. As an agent, he has been trained to believe that insecurity, unsureness and admitting being wrong is a sign of weakness and can get you shot. When on a mission or hitting on an attractive woman, he knows that he's always right and that he will get what he wants. On the other hand, he's fun and most people would find him enjoyable to be around.
