The official synopsis for the film reads: “‘Actor for Hire’ tells the tale of Jesse, an aspiring out-of-work actor desperate to be seen, who thinks he’s not landing parts because he’s bald. After several failed auditions, he decides to pawn his ‘craptop’ for a cheap wig, and immediately books a small role on a TV pilot. As new opportunities are suddenly presented, keeping up his new wigged persona becomes a hairy business.”
“A laugh out loud comedy, a big part of ‘Actor For Hire’ is about the various absurdities and clichés of LA and celebrity culture, which I find endlessly interesting,” says Mizelle. “I have a fascination with Hollywood culture – status, hierarchy, and contrasts of all sorts have become themes I find a great deal of in my own work. I’m hoping audiences continue to find it as entertaining as I do.”
The film was recently named “Staff Pick” at the Virginia Film Festival. “Actor For Hire,” which is currently available in limited release, will enjoy a VOD debut on January 1.
