Looking for Actors for Low-budget feature film

For our feature film The Morning After, we are looking for actors for the following roles. As the film is in English, a solid American or (British) accent is preferred. As the film is a self-financed, low-budget production we won’t be able to offer wages upfront, though we will offer percentages of any money the film would earn from sales.
Sophie – (F, 20s) beautiful. Is highly intelligent but often rational to the point of being cold. Sophie has just graduated with a degree in finance, but also broken up with her college boyfriend, Patrick, as she decided their lives were on different trajectories. Sophie is beautiful and aware of the attention she attracts, but observes it in a detached manner. When confronted with danger, she keeps her emotions under firm control and gathers information to assess the best course of action, which sometimes makes her seem unsympathetic to others.
This role requires the following sequences of nudity: (1) nude scene – breasts seen (no genitals). Note that the nude scene will not be sexualized. The scene is important to the film’s message about the sexualization of the female body. We will make sure that the scenes will be shot with the actors’ comfort in mind.
Days needed: January 14th – 30th
Patrick – (M, 20s). Is Sophie’s former boyfriend and upset by their recent break-up, which he responds to by drinking too much and getting together with Melanie in order to make Sophie jealous. He is occasionally sullen and has difficulty expressing his feelings, but underneath he is a loyal friend who knows when he has behaved badly and genuinely wants to help the people around him. He does not respond well when he finds out that Sophie has slept with Jo, but he also will not abandon his friends when they are in danger.
This role requires the following sequences of nudity and sexuality: (1) simulated (also simulated in-film) sex scene – buttocks seen (no genitals). The sex scene will be creepy and unnerving rather than sexy. The scene is important to the film’s message about the sexualization of the female body. We will make sure that the scenes will be shot with the actors’ comfort in mind.
Days needed: January 14th – 30th
Rabbit (M, 20s). The main villain. Wears a mask throughout. Rabbit is an intelligent, erudite incel who mysteriously appears to threaten Jo, Sophie, and Patrick. He is controlled, often witty, but can rapidly shift between joking and menacing. He peppers his monologues with references to classical and popular culture and appears to know a lot about Jo, Sophie, and Patrick. Even though he is open about his motivations, it is still unclear who he is and why he is behaving as he does.
Days needed: January 14th-16th + 22nd-30th
Wolf/Tom (M, 20s): Wears a mask for most of the film. One of Rabbit’s silent helpers, he is a physically imposing figure who is revealed to be Patrick’s friend, Tom. Tom isn’t particularly bright and likes to play pranks on his friends.
Days needed: January 14th-16th + 22nd-30th
Pig/Jeff (M, 20s): Wears a mask for most of the film. Rabbit’s other silent helper, he is another physically imposing figure who is revealed to be Patrick’s friend, Jeff. Like Tom, Jeff isn’t very clever and believes he is engaged in a prank.
Days needed: January 14th-16th + 22nd-30th
Melanie (F, 20s): Patrick’s new girlfriend, she is upset that he is so obviously still in love with Sophie. When she fails to command his attention at the party, she storms off and returns later to fight it out with him. She genuinely likes Patrick, but is unaware of the broader situation.
Days needed: January 22nd – 23rd + 29th – 30th (+ the evenings of January 21st and 28th if possible)

The Morning After:
The internet trolls have accepted the challenge to say that to your face.
When Jo and Sophie wake up after a drunken lesbian encounter, they are stunned to find the house besieged by incels, led by the mocking, erudite Rabbit. Once they discover Sophie’s ex-boyfriend Patrick passed out in the bathroom, Rabbit tells them they can only leave once Patrick has reclaimed his manhood from their feminist emasculation by doing one simple trick...
Inspired by films such as Funny Games and Promising Young Woman, this intense but often satirical film articulates the darkest side of online culture with a villain who knows no boundaries in his quest “for the lulz.”
We’ll be going through the application in early October, and will be getting back to everyone. Rehearsals will take place in December. ...
