After we were turned down by the last actor, the actor's agent told our casting agent that she really loved the script. This woman is a top agent in Hollywood, so we decided to take advantage of her enthusiasm. She and her partner specialize in representing hot, rising young stars. So our casting agent asked them unofficially about two of their other clients.
Well, we finally heard back from them, and they have ok'd our making an offer to another young actor. Michael doesn't want me to mention his name, but he's someone we thought was completely out of our reach and whom we never would have approached without the agents' enthusiasm. The offer will go out today and then we start the waiting game all over again.
Picture Ruth and Michael at the peak of a roller coaster, taking a big plunge and screaming our heads off.
Prayers and positive thoughts would be appreciated.
