Character Description: Lee is a 1st generation Chinese immigrant with an accent that is readily noticeable. Lee was born into poverty in Guangzhou, China. His family could never escape poverty, so at the age of 17 he traveled to the United States. Although he worked job to job and never rose above the pay rate of a cook, he found love, married, and had two kids. He loved his family, but fatherhood did not come easy to Lee. He did his best, escaping the chaos of his home life through gambling and alcohol. When his beloved wife became suddenly ill, he directed his anger at his kids; emotionally, and in some cases physically. Her death destroyed what few redeeming qualities he possessed, causing him to abandon his kids to the foster care system.

Submissions: Please send your audition tapes to Rebecca at [email protected] by 5:00 PM MST on Friday, November 22nd.

Mr. Lee Casting Sides:

VO Audition: Lee
Lee is a 1st generation Chinese immigrant with an accent that is readily noticeable.


1.
Lee is carving a pair of figurines out of wood for his children. They sit on the carpet watching daytime television at his feet. Lee’s daughter, Allie, asks about the figurine that he has carved for her. This is Lee being the best version of himself.
LEE: This? Good, yes? She’s a superhero. Someone strong and fast and very pretty. She can jump so high, she can leap over the mountains and touch the clouds. Then she carries the clouds home, and puts them on her ice cream. She is just like you.
2.
Lee sits at the dinner table with his two young children Marcus (12) and Allie (7). They eat in silence, avoiding eye contact. Lee lost at the track earlier that day and needs to go out of town to get a loan.
LEE: Listen. I’m going away for a few days. Marcus, keep an eye on your sister, okay? (no response) I said okay. Good. No trouble when I’m gone, understand? If you need anything, call Mr. Jones next door. Keep the house clean, too. Okay. Allie, finish your vegetables.
3.
Lee has found a carton of cigarettes in his son Marcus’ backpack. The two stare each other down in Marcus’ bedroom.
LEE: What is this? What the hell is this? You know better, Marcus. The next time you decide to bring cigarettes into this house, you’re out. You’re done.
4.
Lee sits at a dingy bar, deep in a glass of cheap whiskey. He just lost most of his savings at the track. He catches the eye of another patron slouched next to him.
LEE: It’s all bullshit, isn’t it? The whole thing. No matter how hard you work, no matter what you do, you can lose it all in a day. An hour, even. But they don’t know. They keep your money when I have kids to feed. What do they expect me to do, huh? Are you listening, mister? Huh? Hmph. It’s all bullshit.

5.
Lee is putting his children to bed. He turns out the light to their room and makes a move to close the door. Before he does, his son, Marcus, asks about their mother. Lee pauses in the doorway.
LEE: Your mother? She was a very good person. Let’s not speak of it anymore.
6.
Lee has left his home, and his children, and is interviewing with a fishing captain about work. The captain has asked Lee to describe himself.
LEE: I work hard. Very hard. I know what it’s like to be hungry, so I work harder. You hire me, you won’t regret it.
7.
The boat that Lee works on begins to sink. The crew abandons ship and huddles in a life raft. As the storm rages, their odds of survival look grim. They ask about each other’s families while they wait for the inevitable. They turn to Lee and ask if he has any children. He pauses, and then:
LEE: No.
