The Search for Gad

Perhaps Nico's biggest casting challenge has been finding Gad. This is for myriad reasons, but mostly because of the unique combination of traits the actor needs to be able to deliver. Here's a list of Gad traits off the top of my head:

Musical Talent
Charisma/Lead Singer-ism
Insecurity
Learnedness
Hucksterism

That's a lot for one character.

Still, Nico lined up a few potential Gads for tryouts last Wednesday, and I'm happy to say we now have a Gad. That means the last of the major roles is filled, as well as most of the minor ones. It's safe to say we have a cast.

I have a few more edits to do to the script, and the actors will be working with each other over the next few weeks learning their parts. Shooting starts in early April.

And Spring Training started too. Things are heating up in the desert.

Yours in laying down the law,

Thanks for ordering, Bill, and thanks for being such a help to Nico. You'll be sorely needed during all this.
