Audition Tomorrow for WHAT'S UP WITH FRED?
Tomorrow, I will be reading for the pilot WHAT'S UP WITH FRED? I will be reading for the role of Mr. Weiner (not based on Anthony), a teacher relentlessly bullied by gangs of schoolgirls because of his name and the predictable stories attached. Bitterly Catholic yet nihilistic, he makes for a hopeless teacher, uninspired and uninspiring. Fred is the only student who he has any kind of relationship with: a kind of mutual solace. Mr. Weiner had a tragically short career as an entrepreneur, his business failing quickly, later growing to success under other ownership. He likes to thinks of himself as a pragmatist and realist but in fact spreads a sombre drudgery.
