Available Roles:

  • Janet Harris: (Lead Role) Hanks best friend who secretly has a crush on Hank, but refuses to acknowledge it, even to herself. Just out of college. Clever and funny. Nerdy in the socially acceptable way.

  • Tom: (Supporting Role) Janet’s match. A genuinely nice guy who gets matched with Janet. However, he doesn’t seem to be interested in any of the things that Janet is into, instead he’s more focused on his career and finding a wife to create that dreamed of life.
