Character Type?

This is a brief list of the different "types" of characters that casting directors are looking for and how you should dress for them:


Blue collar

Rugged, construction worker, people who work with their hands. A flannel shirt, ringer t-shirt, colored t-shirt to accent eyes.

The Tough Guy

If you look big, tough and intimidating this is a good photo to have. Maybe a bouncer, private security, gangster, or mafia type. Slicked back hair, nice button-down with a leather jacket.

Business/Corporate

Think power CEO, politician or diplomat, even middle management. A nice suit or sports jacket with a tie.

Tomboy

For women – this is how you would dress if you were just hanging with the guys watching a game.  A subtle team jersey, hair in a pony tail with very little make-up.

The Slacker

Loose fitting clothes, scruffy face, bed head hair.

Athletic

Wear an outfit you would wear to the gym or yoga, hair pulled back for women and very little make-up, messy and w/o products for men.

Midwestern/Outdoors

An outfit you would wear to go camping – Plaid patterns, jeans, khakis, t-shirts, little make up, natural hair, possible scruff for men.

The All-American

Clean cut, well shaven, hair done, big smiles, kind of person you take home to meet the  folks, spending time w/ family, watching the football game, relaxed and comfortable.

Comedic

Expressive faces, odd outfits, creative hairstyles.
