Objective: Choose 3-4 OCs and cast them using real actors/comedians you think would suit the roles, based on physical appearance or personality (or both). You can use current actors or actors from the past. Afterwards, tag 5-10 people you think would enjoy casting their own OCs.
I'm going to take a leaf out of Squonkhunter's book and pick the actors based on voice rather than appearance.
1. Roy Meloni
What to say about Roy...he's annoying, childish, Meloni-ish, and...completely oblivious to anything important. I didn't picture him with a particularly deep voice, but I didn't want him to sound like a complete goof either. After seeing Jaws for the first time couple years ago (Shame on me for taking that long to see that movie in the first place!!), I decided Richard Dreyfuss had the perfect Roy voice.
2. Samuel Smith
(these are all such old pictures, man...)
Samuel Smith is bald, six-foot-infinity, and just a little bit crazy in the head. Nobody you want to get on the wrong side of or meet in a dark alleyway. It took me a while to think up a voice for him. Even though he's kiiiind of crazy, he acts very laid-back and is surprisingly calm, unless he's cutting into you with a nice sharp scalpel, or something equally unappealing. Just look at that warm smile. 8'D In the end, I decided on Terrence Mann, though that could change. But that guy just has such a lovely voice, both for speaking and for singing (though I can't really picture Samuel singing much ).
3. Lorraine Defaux
Lorraine is a girl who tends to bite off more than she can chew, and I suspect might have a bit of an anxiety problem. I wanted to look for a voice that went up and down in range a lot to show her panic and slight case of awkwardness, but not come off as too girly. Turns out Claire Danes does that.
Hmm, who to tag...I'm not sure if all the ones I'm tagging really enjoy this kind of stuff or have OCs, but have fun if you do it. Those I don't or forget to tag, feel free to do it anyway! Just...pretend I tagged you.
