[LAURENCE] – Late teens – Early 20s, male, any ethnicity. He is no stranger to taking it easy and has a non-athletic build.
[DRUM MAJOR] – Early 20s, female, any ethnicity. She takes her job as Drum Major very seriously and in Laurence’s case, tells it like it is.
[PETE] – Mid to late 40s, male, Caucasian. Used to fancy himself an athlete but by this point has let himself go a bit. You could say he falls in the “dad bod” range. Should have enough ice skating experience to feel comfortable acting out some hockey maneuvers.
[ICE SKATING KID] – 8yo – 13yo, male or female, any ethnicity. A talented and proficient ice skater.
[COACH] – Late 20s to 40s, male, Caucasian. In good shape, he has a good resting “slightly judgmental” face.
[DUSTIN] – 40s, male, Caucasian. This guy’s let himself go a bit since college. Maybe he’s hitting a midlife crisis by trying to get back into the swing of things. Yep, pun intended. Baseball experience a plus.
[BATTING CAGE REGULAR] – 50s to 60s, male, any ethnicity. He’s presumably the owner of the batting cages and he may have even played minor league ball at some point. He’s seen it all and should be capable of a steel-eyed, no BS presence. Baseball experience a plus.
[ALLIE] – 20 to early 30s, female, any ethnicity. We get the sense that she’s pretty far down on the totem pole at work, so it’s more of a sting when she gets busted by the boss. Soccer experience a plus. Should have some proficiency dribbling a soccer ball.
[ALLIE’S MOM] – 20-something, female, any ethnicity. Seen in flashback pregnant with baby Allie, she closely resembles her daughter.
[DOCTOR] – 30s to late 50s, male or female, any ethnicity. The clean cut, studious type.
[BOSS] – 40s to early 60s, male, any ethnicity. A down-to-business presence. Clean cut.
