Audition Description

A family is driven into deep debt with the cartel due to a messy addiction to gambling, the father, Eli, has developed. Hoyt, his eldest child, decides to volunteer for an underground “life or death” stakes poker game. He hopes to win to alleviate his family of his father’s accumulated debt. When arriving at the poker game, Hoyt discovers his father has entered as well. Stakes are even higher now because this family will lose a member. After getting to the final round, Eli chooses to sacrifice himself by folding a winning hand. Hoyt returns home as a changed man and takes on the role of head-of-the-household.

  • Quiet with a do-it-myself attitude. Naive and fiercely loyal to family, yet resentful of Eli. Maintains a deeply buried compassion.

I've submitted to many casting?s and was selected ! I will have to compliment on the professionalism and fast instantaneous service that ExploreTalent.com has provided me. It is unlike any other service I've used with its caring staff and immediate help that I?ve receive from customer service and its state of the art web technology that really electrifies me! It really is the quality of service that makes Explore Talent stand as MY NUMBER 1 MARKETING SERVICE. I've submitted to many casting?s and was selected by one of the WORLDS leading photographers, and Agents to work exclusively with them for many projects. I even met the casting director of General Hospital that works exclusively with my new agent as his assistant! If this isn't striking it big, I'll never know what is. I'm currently working from my home state with an e-bay project then I'm heading to AZ to really launch my career as my Agent works with only vast clients such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Calvin Klein etc. Thank-you EXPLORE TALENT for everything you do! Yours Truly, Joe Bryant -- Actor / Model
