Casting call for FTM actors

Are you an aspiring actor who is also trans? Well, you might have a sound your niche already. Award-winning trans director Rhys Ernst is looking for some fine young gentlemen to audition for the lead role in his upcoming MFA thesis comedy Tristan and Zooey. He describes the character as a transitioned 20-something boy-next-door type.

SYNOPSIS: Gender, cats, and mythical roadside attractions are at the center of a tumultuous road trip embarked upon by a young woman and transman. Will the couple break up? Will the cat get a UTI? Will they ever find out what’s at their mysterious destination known as “The Thing”???

Casting sessions will be held both in the San Francisco area and Los Angeles area in August and September (and sporadically throughout the fall as necessary). Casting sessions can also be held in other California areas as arranged. Casting sessions outside of California / the west coast can be arranged, and casting tapes will always be accepted.
