I am basically self taught in the field of acting which makes people underestimate me but do not underestimate me because when I want something I go and get it. y goal is to at least be as famous as Will Smith one day and hopefully this movie is a catalyst to a very successful acting career.

I believe I would be a great audition to this production.

Acting is like a way to build your confidence. Its a way to express yourself without people judging you and its like a whole step forward towards that. And thats coming from a person who use to get picked on all the time. I love acting and making people laugh and every time i tried to go to websites and sign u for stuff they dont notice mean and i hope yall will change that. :))

  18. Michael Marrow

    Hi, my name is Michael Marrow and I’m a particularly bored 17 year old from Northern Virginia with an intense passion for acting while having absolutely no experience. I do, however, have much experience in talking and making people believe something that I’m not; I’m involved in politics and speak to large audiences quite frequently, which I suppose may constitute as acting. However, I have a very strong presence in every room that I step into, and can often command and captivate an audience regardless of size. At 6 ft tall and 185 pounds with dirty blonde hair and blue eyes, my demeanor strikes a good balance between commanding and comfortable. Along with being extremely outgoing, I fit equally well in one on one interactions with people as well as huge groups of them. As I have said, I have absolutely no experience in acting, but I feel as though my experience in speaking with passion and belief has given me a unique set of skills that I feel may be valuable to a movie. Then again, I’m probably wrong. If you read this, I appreciate your time for considering me.

  37. Errol G. Francis, Jr.

    Hi my name is Errol G. Francis, Jr. My family and friends call me E.J. I am from Beltsville, Maryland and I live near the University of Maryland College Park. Acting has always been a dream of mine since high school. I took acting classes in high school at the Round House Theater in Maryland and in college at Hampton University. In college, I minored in acting while my major was communications. Also, I am looking to gain some acting experience since I already have the education. I would love to be apart of this movie. I know people have said this time and time again that this is what they want to do but for me personally this is my DREAM and I want to fulfill it. I am currently not working due to the poor job market and have been trying to find a job since graduating from college in 2007. I am very passionate and determined to pursue anything I put my mind into. Will Smith is one of my favorite celebs. I have been a fan of him since the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and early hip-hop days. If offered the opportunity to work with Will Smith, I really want this opportunity so much and it would mean the world to me if you can make this happen. My dream and goal is to not only get to be in a movie but to become a future Oscar winner!!

  38. Derek pratt

    This movie is so perfect for me you have no idea. I played college football at the university of Maine and had to deal with concussion after concussion. It got to the point from high school to my sophomore year of college that doctors had to pull me off the field and tell me my playing days were over. The last concussion I got lasted almost two months and it was miserable to deal with. Luckily I have no lingering side effects other than head aches here and there. My senior project with a fellow teammate was a project on concussion awareness. Since college I have been acting and modeling in Boston. I am currently represented by Maggie Inc. I’m 6’2 205 pounds. This movie would literally be a dream come true. I am so passionate about concussion prevention and helping spread the word would be amazing. Not to mention I think I would be a perfect fit in the film as well. My past movie expirence consists of the up and coming Disney movie the finest hours as a featured dancer and a security guard in the up and coming movie Bleed for this. I am looking forward to hearing back form you! It would be a dream come true.

  39. Ross Strobert

    I’m Ross Strobert I am a 14 year old black teen, I am built like a lineman and fell like I can fit the roll in this movie, I want plentyful amount of lines but I will also except a low roll too, I need this money to get out of the projects (affordable housing), Ive had a lot of experience with acting, I was in 7 plays for my local acting department,, and I was an Extra for the ABC show Body of Proof, and lastly I was a lead role in the 15 min. Short film, What Is Fear by Sage Ficcicola you can view it on Please give me a chance.

  40. Zakiyah

    This would be my first show i would be doing on television. My resume consists of musicals, and plays, amongst a lot of talent shows and audition experience. The main reason i want to be on this show besides my love for performing is that i deeply relate to the character because i too have a past worth inquiring about.

  41. Michael P

    I would love the chance to be in the film. I am a man of many faces and expressions. My look can change by the week if need be. I am committed to acting the part out, and used to play football and have the build to pass as a player. I have always been good at playing things off with people as they never know if what I am saying is fact or fiction, or if I am serious or joking. Thanks

  42. Cedric Mitchell

    I played semi-pro football for 7 years and would love to participate in this film. I am 6’0 tall 165 and ready to prove my worth to my favorite actor Will Smith, the Director , and staff. Thank you

  43. Miriam Vaquerano

    As a psychology major in college this topic was always one that fascinated me the most. The stress that athletes put on their bodies is incredible. I would love to be part of a project that would be able to create awareness to athletes and others how important it is for athletes to take care of themselves not only on a physical level but mental as well. Ontop of this topic being a huge interest of mine people tell me all the time that I should look into acting. This would be a first time thing for me but I’m positive giving me a chance woukd be something you won’t regret. Thank you so much for your consideration. Have a great day.

  44. Latanya Anderson

    I don’t have any acting or modeling experience. In fact, I don’t think I fit the model profile. However, if the movie is supposed to tell how the world looks at football, I believe I should be cast to represent the part of the world that knows of football but doesn’t know about the game. The mom who has a son who wants to play but only sees the getting hurt aspect of the game. I could show the genuine perspective. Plus, I would really love to be in the movie industry and who could resist meeting Will Smith?

I have finally decided to take the bull by the horns, put one’s hand to the plow, put one’s nose to the grindstone, grab my testicles and run…. wait, I don’t think that goes…. Just do it!!!!
