Roles:The Client Bobby Jones, the defendant, is 26 years old.  We will consider actors between 20 and 35 depending on apparent age.  We seek actors who are either African-American, Latino, or white.

Bobby has a history of domestic violence.  Actors playing Bobby must be able to understand and portray a damaged man desperately clinging to his dignity.

Male construction workers, age 25-40.  Hard working, hard drinking.  Beefy physique a plus.  Must be able to realistically portray blue collar individuals without stereotyping.
