Casting Asian Am mom and dad for USC student film

Title: Cut the Fat
Logline: A man has to defend his honor, win over a wife, and protect his unborn child by gaining the respect of a man who detests him the most – his future father in law.

Auditions are at USC this Thursday, September 24th, 2009 from 6pm-11pm. Locations will be emailed.


DAD: Korean man in his 40’s-late 50’s. Very traditional, conservative and from the old world. He’s stuck in a time period and mentality that doesn’t exist even in modern-day Korea anymore. He wants to make sure that his future son in law has balls to protect his daughter from nature, foe, and random acts of violence from street gangs. Although he’s 1st generation, he’s made a name for himself in academia with several published literature and is a professor of English literature. He’s an expert martial artist.

MOM: Korean woman in her 40’s. Adaptable, shrewd, funny, and has very good intuition. Can tell right away when something is wrong and is immediately thinking of ways to solve problems.
