Casting Black Male Lead for Prison Movie (Jackson, MI)

Available Roles:

  • Black Diamond – late 20s to early 30. An ugly, black, prison drag queen with lots of personality (a diamond in the rough) – defiant, intelligent, shameless, and vulnerable. He relishes his prison celebrity; enjoying a sex life he’d hardly have anywhere else.
