*If role has been cast actors will be seen for replacements.
PASSION: 30-32, A scholar from the inner city. A true urban guy. He is a Queens native and New York to his core. A smart, seasoned guy who has seen a lot in his life and is very in-tune with the world around him. He has an articulate, but edgy presence.
LOVE: Already cast.
LUST: Already cast.
HAPPINESS: Already cast.
ANGER: 25-28, A Harlem native, but lived and seen other places. Sports exposed him to a much bigger world. A former collegiate basketball player considered to be a jock. He carries a chip on his shoulder from not reaching the pros due to his knee injury. Has a rawness and heaviness in his personal life that brings a weight to all areas of his life. He is smarter than what you would expect.
DEPRESSION: Already cast.
DESPAIR: 50-55, A retired police officer. This man carries a steady, strict, authoritative presence. Tall and muscular with an empowering presence. Should have a refined roughness. Loves his family, but his internal demons holds him back from reaching his maximum potential with the relationships in his life.
WISDOM: 60-65, A man of dark complexion, African born. An immigrant to the United States. His accent is no longer as heavy as it once was when he was younger. Moved to America as a teenager. A heavy thinking man. Regal and confident, but equally humble. He posses a strength that can only be acquired by survived hardships over an extended period of time. Should have the essence of wisdom in body, beliefs and age.
DANCERS: One role already cast.
