Job Description

STORY LINE: Jack is an I/T programmer, a great guy, unlucky in love. Jill is a graphic designer, a great gal, and just as unlucky. They have no idea they are destined to be together. On a starry night, Jack and Jill separately meet a gypsy lady who tells them they will meet the love of their life before midnight at the end of the year, which happens to be only five days away. The countdown begins, and both Jack and Jill go on a series of horrible and hilarious dates, each worse than the next. Each time, they barely miss meeting each other. New Years Eve is getting closer. Will the gypsy’s prophecy come true? Will they meet and fall in love?

Note: All of the dancing in this film is West Coast Swing, a smooth, slinky version of Swing that’s danced to R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, and Country. The movie will be choreographed by one of the world champions in the field.

The Lead roles are being cast with "Named Actors" They are given for story reference only.

[JILL] Age 25-40. STAR NAMES ONLY. Jill is a positive thinker, a dreamer, and wants to find the love of her life. She falls into believing the gypsy ladie’s prediction she’ll find her love in 5 days because she wants to believe it. Her best friends Patrick and Amy are much more cynical, and they love Jill’s optimism. She goes on a series of the worst dates ever, trying not to settle, unknowingly getting closer to the love of her life...LEAD (1) SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES. DANCE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED

[JACK] Age 28-40. STAR NAMES ONLY. Jack’s a genuine good guy, divorced, single, and also looking for love. Not only does he believe the gypsy lady, he takes one of the cats she offers him, and makes it his pet. When he goes on a series of horrible dates, he’s in danger of giving up on finding his soulmate...LEAD (5) SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES. DANCE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.

[DAVID] Age 25-40. STAR NAMES ONLY. He’s Jack’s best friend (they went to college together), and confidant. He’s much more edgy in life than Jack, and he’s already found his soulmate, Samantha.

[PATRICK] Age 30-40. STAR NAMES ONLY. Patrick is Jill’s GBF (gay best friend), and loves her to death.

[AMY] 30-40. She’s self-involved, cynical, and way past trying to find the perfect guy. She speaks bluntly and definitely wears the pants in any relationship. She knows she’s settling by choosing Ron. He’s not that bright, but she knows he’ll be good to her, and she accepts that she’s basically into him for his ridiculously good looks. She loves Jill, and really adores the fact that Jill is a dreamer, which is why she picks Jill to be her Maid of Honor. CAST

[RON] 30-40. An Adonis, built like a Greek God, but even more handsome. The nicest guy, but not the sharpest tool in the shed. In fact, he’s dumb as a stump. He loves his fiancee Amy (Jill’s best friend), and will always treat her well, so Amy accepts his lack of common sense...LEAD (25)
