Casting Call – Actor needed for lead role

Life Outside – Casting Call

My name is Ali Saloum. I am shooting a short film on a quickly looming deadline. My lead actor unfortunately had to drop out of the role due to medical issues. Therefore I need to recast and quickly. I will hold a casting call this Wednesday at 5:30 on the Wayne State University Campus. I will determine the exact location on the campus on Monday but it will either be in the Wayne State Media Lab TV Studio in the Old Main Building, 4841 Cass Street on the forth floor Room 4130 or in the Wayne State Student Center, 5221 Gullen Mall in one of the Hillberry Conference Rooms located on the second floor. The exact location will be e-mailed to all interested parties. Excuse my uncertain location; this is a last minute troubleshoot.

The title of my film is Life Outside and I need to cast for the protagonist Jimmy Ray. Here is a synopsis:

Jimmy Ray is a forty-year old man just released from prison after being found innocent of a robbery/murder crime committed twenty-years ago. When released he finds himself alone, his family and friend abandoned him years ago. He desires to earn a job, to revive him self in a world that left him to die. But Jimmy finds his efforts futile; he finds a life outside a bigger prison that does not suit him very well.

I am looking for an older actor, the story goes that Jimmy was sent to prison at 20 and released at 40. Please send headshot(s), a resume and if you have any acting work online you can include that.
