HBO TV CASTING: Male to portray Somali male (ages 17-25) SAMEER (lead): To say he's handsome (he is) communicates nothing of what makes him special. He has that look of nostalgia, like a mute poet – an ancient heretic is struggling to say one last thing through him. Melancholic eyes. He swings the pendulum b/w the articulate & the aggressive, the poetic & the violent. Serious eyes. Popular w/the neighborhood girls, but shares a beautiful connection/love w/girlfriend Lacy. When he reads poetry aloud, it’s w/sensitivity, drama & advanced intonation. Enchanting to watch. Thoughtful, passionate, likes music. Not an ordinary teen. High school senior. SAG-AFTRA scale rates (note prior quotes). TV series by K'naan Warsame. Email: email@example.com (SAMEER: AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS in subject line)
