Casting lead/secondary roles in "Matt Lewandowski and The Purple People," a micro budget independent film which will shoot in Philadelphia between March 29th and July 26th. The film is a Dark Comedy about a man who watches his world devolve into a B-Movie trope while events unfold in the background that precipitate a 2nd American Civil War. Expectations are for a sequel so some characters can become recurring.

CASTING FOR: KELLY KRIEGER (22-26)
the catalyst for the events that push the plot forward; she is a self proclaimed social justice warrior who initiates a devastating charge against her employer that has no basis in reality....or so we're led to believe.
Ethnicity: White / European Descent

CASTING FOR: MELANIE IBANEZ (23-30)
the comic relief; sassy single mother who quips on all the lunacy that is occurring as the plot unfolds. This role requires some sexual humor and offensive language. Also there are a couple of scenes that require minimal fight choreography. Preferred natural Spanish accent or excellent improvisation.

Ethnicity: Latino / Hispanic

CASTING FOR: MATT LEWANDOWSKI (28-36)
The titular character is a superannuated relic in today's ever changing social climate. He's naive yet cautious, steadfast while adaptable. He plays it straight in a world crumbling into absurdity. The reluctant hero, an unwitting foil. Looking for someone who is not the A-Typical lead. (NOTE: We will hold readings while we address schedule conflicts with the principle in the event we lose the primary but I wanted to advise that this is partially closed.)
Ethnicity: White / European Descent

CASTING FOR: SAM GRANT (33-43)
U.S. "Sam" Grant is a card carrying NRA member of this diverse Hodgepodge of friends. Sam is patriotic former war hero. People with Military background or background in weapons training a plus.
Ethnicity: White / European Descent

CASTING FOR: JASON HOLLIDAY (24-31)
Jason is your everyday hardcore gamer. Extremely intelligent and full of knowledge though he can sometimes come off like Cliff Claven, making obscure references that few understand.
Ethnicity: Black / African Descent

CASTING FOR: BRIANNE V. (21-28)
Brianne is the young "tree-hugging" intern who gets in over her head by placing herself in the middle of Matt's adventures. Appearance is college aged and role may involve some light fight choreography.
Ethnicity: Ethnically Ambiguous / Multiracial, White / European Descent
