Driving Miss Daisy – Thursday, August 24
Casting only for Daisy’s son, Boolie (aged 30-50). Boolie is a strong business leader and extremely concerned with how he is perceived by society. He cares for his mother and wants to do what’s best for her, but sometimes neglects her feelings. He generally overrides her without thinking about what she really wants or why she wants it. However, he humors his mother’s stubbornness rather than try to understand it.
