Bad Auditions… On Camera by Ian McWethy, Carrie McWethy (McCrossen)
A casting director has one day to find an actor to fill the role of a lawyer in the crime procedural, Crime Court. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors includes stage thespians who can’t tone it down for the screen, performers completely unable to keep themselves in frame, and an actor who seems to believe this is a toothpaste commercial.
