Project Notes: Delinquent Genius Films, is now casting "EDDIE THE LOSER" a Romantic Comedy, (our first feature film) scheduled for production in late summer, 2012. The project will be shot in and around the Los Angeles area.
Eddie Valchek - Lead / MALE / 25 TO 35
Eddie is a homely, overweight loser who lives with his mom. He has never held a job, and drinks too much. Eddie has been in a coma ever since he got drunk six months ago and ran his junky car into a telephone pole. After awaking from his coma, he finds out that he has been dreaming that he was a movie star and slowly comes to the painful realization that in reality, his life really, REALLY SUCKS! Eddie decides to do whatever it takes to return to his coma; to a life that even though it's a dream, is infinitely better than his. Even though he tries some incredibly crazy stunts, Eddie is unsuccessful in his attempts to return to his coma. After one particularly crazy and funny stunt, a passerby, Stacy Meek, rescues him.
Stacy Meek - Lead / FEMALE / 21 TO 35
Stacy is a simple, kind, sweet, gentle girl whom Eddie falls madly in love with. After a whirlwind romance, they are soon married and have a simple honeymoon in a second story room at a rundown motel.
Uncle Stan - Supporting / MALE / 45 TO 70
Required Skills - Dialects: American Southern
Uncle Stan is a hard-core ex-Marine. (Think of the Drill Sergeant in Full Metal Jacket) He previously owned a failing auto repair shop in West Hollywood until the bad economy brought him to the life-changing realization that deep inside, he has always been a woman! After crossing this Rubicon, Uncle Stan shut down the auto repair shop and converted the building into the most successful gay bar in West Hollywood called, "The Automatic Tranny". Outside of the heavy lipstick and Farrah Faucet wig, Uncle Stan has absolutely no feminine features whatsoever and still acts pretty much like a Drill Sergeant.. He runs the club with the love of his life, Reginald.
Reginald - Supporting / MALE / 35 TO 55 / 6' 0" - 7' 0" / African American
Reginald is a very intelligent, big, tall, handsome, and very muscular man who is Uncle Stan's better half. Together they operate the most successful gay bar in West Hollywood called, "The Automatic Tranny".
Since Eddie has never actually had a girlfriend and pretty much hangs out at the Automatic Tranny all of the time, (because he gets free beer..) Reginald and Uncle Stan are CONVINCED that he's gay and are constantly trying to set him up with Hugo, their very nice, (Leather Clad) friend..
Hugo - Supporting / MALE / 25 TO 45
Hugo has a big handlebar mustache and is the leather clad friend of Reginald and Uncle Stan.. As if Barry and the Russian Hooker were not bad enough, Hugo also develops a "Fatal Attraction" for our hero Eddie and in the end of the movie, gets a HELL-OF-A-BEAT DOWN by the kind,, sweet, and gentle Stacy Meek.. When Stacy finally fights for her man, she throws an ass-whipping on Hugo that he will NEVER forget!!!
Barry Sanders - Supporting / MALE / 25 TO 35
The Russian Hooker - Supporting / FEMALE / 35 TO 55 / Caucasian, Eastern European, Scandinavian, Slavic / Balkan
Required Skills - Dialects: Russian
NUDITY REQUIRED. She's been around the block.. (Several Times!) Weathered, drugged up, worn out, and BAT-SH#T CRAZY!!! She takes a liking to our hero, Eddie and when he meets the love of his life, Stacy, her "liking" turns into a full-blown obsession!! Glenn Close in 'Fatal Attraction' ain't got nothin on this CRAZY B#TCH!!
Note: Must be comfortable with nudity - There is a VERY FUNNY scene where The Russian Hooker breaks into Eddie's room NAKED and attacks him with an ax! They end up running down the street with her NAKED violently swinging the ax while chasing Eddie in nothing but his tightie whities!!
Bob The Cop - Supporting / MALE / 50 TO 70
Bob is kind, sweet, and should have retired years ago.. For over 30 years, Bob has had a big crush on Irma and thinks of Eddie as his son. (Is he Eddie's real father?? hmmm..) Bob is the only reason Eddie is not dead or permanently incarcerated!
Irma Valchek - Supporting / FEMALE / 50 TO 70
Irma is Eddie's Mother. She is the quintessential codependent. Where Eddie is concerned, she is possessive, manipulative, controlling, and also in complete denial about his drinking problem. She waits on Eddie hand and foot but refuses to even speak with her now homeless husband. You might say that she has "Anger Issues" over being abandoned by Hue so long ago.
Hue Valchek - Supporting / MALE / 50 TO 70
Hue is Eddies Father. He is a raging alcoholic. When Eddie was 8 years old, Hue had a major mid-life crisis and quit his job. He bought a sports car and decided that he needed his freedom and moved out of the house. He bought some polyester suits and started hitting the disco scene. Two months later, he fell on hard times and took up drinking. He has been a homeless person living in his sports car ever since. He still wears those worn out polyester suits.
Story Line: Bret Martin is a famous movie star. He has every material possession that the heart could possibly desire and is constantly surrounded by beautiful women. One day, while driving his Ferrari down PCH, Bret is broadsided by a garbage truck leaving him in a coma. Bret awakes from his coma to find that his real name is Eddie Valchek, a homely, overweight, loser who lives with his mom, has never held a job, and drinks too much. Eddie has been in a coma ever since he got drunk six months ago and ran his junky car into a telephone pole. Turns out, Eddie has been dreaming that he was a movie star and slowly comes to the painful realization that in reality, his life really, REALLY SUCKS!
