We are casting 3 DAYPLAYER roles for a Non-Union FEATURE FILM that's shooting in NEW YORK CITY in January, 2021 for about a week. Please only submit if you are a NYC area local and have general availability in January. MUST have driver's license. Email your headshot and reel to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FEMALE TAXI DRIVER, 25 to 35 years old. Black female. All body types. Long braided hair (not mandatory). MUST HAVE VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE. ANDRES gets in her taxi randomly so he can drive around the city and listen to the internal 2-way radio frequency to get more information about the suspect. She agrees to let him listen in because ANDRES sweet talked to her into it.
She's energetic, bubbly and assertive with a flare and rambunctious attitude. She's fierce and takes no BS from anyone but if you get on her good side, she warms up to you.
ABDUL, 35 to 45 years old, South Asian male from INDIA originally. Slight accent. Wears turban. MUST HAVE VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE. He loves gambling and uses the Taxi's 2-way radio to cheat on sporting bets. He's high energy, has a slight accent and pays no mind to ANDRES who is his passenger except when ANDRES asks him to turn up the radio so he can recognize a classical tune.
GAS, 45 to 55 years old. Mixed ethnicity/Hispanic male. VERY talkative with high energy. MUST HAVE VALID DRIVER'S LICENSE. ANDRES gets into GAS'S taxi to circulate around the city and MARY calls him with news about the suspect, giving him a license number and name. ANDRÉS asks GAS if he can help him and GAS (believing that ANDRÉS is a real policeman) tells him that he knows who SAM SMITH is and that he can find out where he is through the internal GPS. Later on ANDRÉS has a hunch about who the murderer is and cannot get a taxi so he decides to call GAS, who picks him up and follows the murderous taxi driver through the GPS but disappears from the radar. But ANDRÉS already knows where he is going and since there is a lot of traffic he decides to run, leaving GAS and behind. MUST SPEAK SPANISH.
