2 Male Actors. Comedy Short. Sunday League Football and Men's Mental Health

London, UK
Listed by View details

I've written a (dark) comedy short which I'm intending to use as a proof of concept to be made into a TV show, as well as push out online.

It's about two men, early thirties, who play for a Sunday League football team. One of them, the manager, has heard someone in the team is suffering with depression, and they're trying to work out which one it is.

It could be anyone.

I'm looking for guys who understand what it's like to keep things bottled up.

You don't have to be interested in football, or play football, as long as you understand the camaraderie and happiness that comes from it.

Understand why running around a field, in the rain, with a hangover, surrounded by 21 other wheezing men struggling to accept the limitations of their bodies - is often the only time and space some men have to escape it all.

Tonally, Early Doors, The Office, Detectorists, Flowers.

I'm looking to shoot this early next year. With time for auditions either December or early Jan.

Job payment

Fixed price of £60 - Half day shoot, all in. If I get funding, fee can go up.

Expenses paid - Travel, lunch, cup of tea.

Player/ Manager of a Sunday League team, which consists of weird mix of men that would never be in the same place together if it wasn't for football - lawyers, to drug dealers, to Romanian forklift drivers to teenage trolley attendants to investment bankers. Chris is the glue that sticks them all together. Bit excitable, bit of a short fuse, but above all else - caring about his team.

Male, aged 26 to 36

Applications closed 1 January 2020.


Mike's on the sidelines with his 10 month year old baby strapped to his chest. He's injured but loves to come and watch with Chris. He's married, decent job, mortgage, lovely wife. He's a bit gentler than Chris and keeps his cards close to his chest.

Male, aged 27 to 36
