Okay, here's the scenario.

You're at a bar, and it's karaoke night. At the behest of your friends, you go up and sing, "Sweet Home Alabama". Your air guitar work on the guitar riffs wow the crowd, one of whom is a young woman named Kimmy Van Goosen, who happens to be the hairdresser of the girlfriend of the cousin of the next door neighbor of famed TV producer Biff Marlowe.

Kimmy tells her hairdresser client, who tells her boyfriend, who tells his cousin, who tells Biff Marlowe about this guy who did a great air guitar riff on Sweet Home Alabama. Biff is thinking about making a new TV series, and hears about you at exactly the right moment. You get a call, sign a contract, and WHAMMO! you've got your own TV series.

You recognize the power of the supporting cast, and you're savvy enough to know that you don't want Biff signing a bunch of B and C grade stars to back you up, people like former Eight Is Enough star Adam Rich or that guy who played the president on Independence Day. So you get involved in the casting, and you want to work with some unknowns.

After some negotiating, you do screen tests with all of the models and actors at Donna Baldwin talent, a Denver-based modeling agency. [Rain Man note: I don't know these people, but they have a cool web site.] It turns out that they all have exactly equal acting talent, so it will all come down to appearance and charisma and how well you look as a team.

You have to select three to five people to be your costars on the TV series. Please pick your costars, and then say what role they will play (e.g., your spouse, your coworker, your roommate, etc.)

Here's the site: http://www.donnabaldwin.com/ Feel free to make use of the search features.

Nicole McAlister would play my love interest and foil. Blondes always project well, and that face ought to be worth a few ratings points.

http://www.donnabaldwin.com/actors/female/Images/NicoleMcAllister_THB.jpg

Jose Mercado would be my rather eccentric best friend. He would bring in Hispanic audiences, and also looks like he would be an entertaining sidekick.

http://www.donnabaldwin.com/actors/male/Images/JoseMercado_THB.jpg

John Roemer would be another friend, providing some eye candy for the ladies, but also some comic appeal.

http://www.donnabaldwin.com/actors/male/Images/JohnRoemer_THB.jpg

Michelle Kay would be the kind of ditzy next-door neighbor, who would be identifiable with the female viewing segment. Plus, she's a redhead.

http://www.donnabaldwin.com/actors/female/Images/MichelleKaye_THB.jpg

Twyla Monterroso...okay, I'll admit it. She's just eye candy. Plain and simple. We'll find a role for her somewhere, as potentially my coworker, or our masseuse, or something like that. We WILL find a role for her.

As a casting note, Silbi Stainton was a finalist to play my love interest. Gotta love that smile. I might bring her in for a few guest appearances as Nicole's younger sister.

That Chris Atencio guy would probably get all of the best lines, I bet.

My show is called, Football Fever . I play a football junkie whose whole life revolves around the sport. I've never been good enough to play it, and that probably translates into my fanatical pursuit of the game. Hijinks and hilarity entail as I try to become a mascot for my favorite fictional team.

Larry Gallegos

plays my crazy (literally) next door neighbor who doesn't seem to understand that football isn't the same as soccer (his favorite sport). he has a son played by:
Daniel James

who is your typical mopey teenager with poor hygiene habits.

I pal around with my drinking buddy who is usually the impetus for our wild adventures

I'll have to do something along the lines of always trying to get my roommate to hook me up with his brother.

And my straight-laced mom hates the fact that I live with a guy (even though it's platonic).

You should check out Twyla Monterroso. I think Twyla would win the part based on natural talent.
