    Interested in anything you need. I am 52 but can look older or younger (depending on inspiration) Have done lots of stand up comedy and one non paid, non union comercial but wish to do more unpaid work to gain experience and exposure.

    Do you need headshots prior to the auditions?

  2. Jeffrey Wayne says:

    I appreciate your interest in our short film and would love to have you audition. Although head shots are appreciated ahead of time if you do not have one that is okay as well. We will be taking pictures if you don’t have one to add to your file at the audition. Thanks again. Anymore questions feel free to ask.

    Grew up in Belleville, Michigan my whole life until a little over a year ago…I am very familiar with Westland. I love acting and would be great for this film as the main character (The Guy).
