Hilarious inside view of the agony actors go through in the casting process by very talented veteran director Armand Mastroianni. Great looking short movie; looks like a big budget project. Mind blowing twist at the end. Nice ensemble cast consisting of Chris Muto, Paul Elia, Adrian Gaeta, and Ben Gavin work well together as competitive actors who try to bond as they wait for a fateful phone call... only one of them will get the role they have been called back for five times each Written by John Grey

Can't wait for his next film
6 December 2011 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

This was exactly what I needed when I saw it.

Mr. Mastroianni has done things differently over the years and here is another wonderful example of great film making.

Great story, great actors and a great director make a great film.

Not to mention I laughed pretty hard as well.

I am really looking forward to Armand's next project as is my wife (who is Italian). She went to Italy this summer to see family and told me so many stories that reminded me of scenes from The Finalist.

Great job Mr. Mastoianni!

Keep up the excellent work!!!!
