Waiting in Whatley follows Jimmy, a slick salesman trying to get home to Whatley, TX. On his journey he meets some unlikely travel companions. As they journey together we dive into why Whatley is so important to each of them.

Character BIOS:

We are looking to cast the following roles please see below for character bios and sides.

Jimmy: A slick, charming man who looks like he’s in his 40s. Husband to Charlene, and father to Jimmy Jr., but that hasn’t stopped him from flirting with anyone in a skirt. Should have a mustache.

Lester: Young man in his 20s. Looks and acts like “oil field trash.” Despite his rough exterior, he possesses a tender soul.

Purvis: A gruff, older man, with no tolerance for bull. Drives an old pickup truck with the love of his life, his trusty dog, Louise. While he seems simple, his love of practicing Tai Chi reveals a hidden depth.

LT: A Fry cook who works at the diner. Big and tough; appears to be in his thirties. Has a vast knowledge of JRR Tolkien.

Shayla: Waitress at the diner. Beautiful, but already world-weary. Has gotten used to advances made to her by hopeful patrons, and is open about her disdain for them.

Louise: Purvis’ dog. Should be older, with low energy.

Lump: A young man who looks like he might be in his mid-twenties. Clean cut. Lump doesn’t have much dialogue, but will be on screen a fair amount.

Bus Driver: Older actor.

SUV Driver: Any age, any gender.

Bus Extras: Any age, any gender.

Diner Extras: -Any age, any gender.
