Our campaign of the week is A ROLE TO DIE FOR



A ROLE TO DIE FOR is a comedy/thriller set against the backdrop of Hollywood and the entertainment business. And!... most of the things that happen in this film come from actual events! I'm not kidding, it's crazy here. And!... the characters in the film are based on real people that I have met in my many years in this business. So see if you can figure out "who" is really "whom." Or is that the other way around? Whatever...


John C McGinley

So when Neo-Luddite, (someone who fights against technology, Twitter, FB, etc...) COLIN CLOONEY, played by John C McGinley, (Scrubs, Wall Street, Office Space, Platoon and about 100 other film credits! ) ---- hears about a role of a Luddite being cast by Movie Producer, HANK HENRY, played by Jonathan Banks, (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, 48 hours, Beverly Hills Cop, so old-school film, he drips melted celluloid! -- film.)

Colin knows this is the part he has been waiting for his whole life, but when he figures out that social-media is determining who is being cast and seven actors with more "followers and likes" would have to die before he even gets the opportunity to audition, things get kooky.

And as Colin pursues this role, things really go sideways when his best friend/screenwriter, JIMMY WALTERS, that's me, decides to write his masterpiece about Colin's misdeeds. A "who done it!"

And how can you do a story about Showbiz without the stunning women of Hollywood, huh? Well you can't, so the story is full of them. And they're gorgeous…seriously! And if you invest enough, well maybe you just might get to meet them.

Johnathan Banks
Also in the cast; Mark Moses who will play, Kenny Kerry, one of Colin's competitors for a part in the epic film-in-a-film. (Mad Men, Desperate Housewives, Homeland, Platoon, The Last Ship).

*And most likely two other actors from Platoon as well. We're getting the band back together… or Platoon in this case. Ha! But we're going to keep it a surprise.

Directing this picture will be super-talented, Sundance veteran director, John Asher, (Tooken, One Tree Hill, Dirty Love). And whether known as a writer, director, producer, or actor, John has a natural affinity to entertain. John comes from old Hollywood and great stock. His father, William Asher, was the original director of I LOVE LUCY (1951) and creator of BEWITCHED (1964). Come on now? Do ya think John knows comedy? Get outta here! It's in his blood!
