CUPID: Male, 40s-50s (Co-star)

Cupid is not the alluring, handsome deity that we often envision. He is a bloated, hairy-chested, balding man who looks to be in his late 50s, but he is “thousands of years old”. Think Danny De Vito-esque. His attitude toward love is jaded. He possesses the apathy of a former Hollywood child star. He smokes cigarettes. In the story and based on his character appearance, we see he is not the spellbinding figure we envisage.

If interested, please send your headshot and demo. Thank you!
