Character 1
30s (flexible if older)
Mid 30’s red-eyed and filthy, exhausted-looking, sad and serious, confused and emotional, with a spark of trying to get out of the bad situation he is in. John is a former marine with traumatic experience in the field, he retired after 4 campaigns and by the time he got back he lost his family friends and the PTSD just made everything worst for him. Know he is looking to make up his mind and decide if is a good option to go back. For self tape please say the following lines: ( Please feel free to give us different versions of the same line.) "Seems like you only tell me things I already know.""Not even to change anything, maybe. Just to check. See if it all happened how I think it did.""When we got out there, they said, “be careful who you kill. Some of them are on our side.”
Character 2
late 20s (flexible if older)
Late 20s exact and expressionless, no regrets and no feelings shown, impotent. Dr Eisenhower is a manifestation created by John’s mind, she is a little voice in his head with no feelings leading him into the development of the epiphany of the story. She knows everything that John thinks and feel, she is a reference and a support for him. For self tape please say the following lines: ( Please feel free to give us different versions of the same line.) "And what is it that you want from me?" "You’re frustrated."
