Casting Breakdown ~ "Trophy Wife"

Thank you to our friend, Sam!
If you wish to repost this information, kindly link back to this site. Thanks!


[AVERY METCALFE] Female, 35–40. A tough cookie. The beautiful, smart, stylish younger wife to a wealthy, unattractive older man. They both have affairs on the side with gorgeous, not-too-bright twenty-somethings. When her husband dies of an apparent heart attack, she eventually confesses to killing him via poisoning – but her confession is full of holes, and leads the detectives to suspect she is actually attempting to cover for her young lover. The investigation uncovers that she really is the murderer after all – her husband was going to divorce her days before the 10-year cut-off in her pre-nup, leaving her with nothing.

[EV DILLAHUNT] Male, 55–60, upper class. The snooty head of a prestigious auction house. He finds his company caught up in a massive fraud perpetrated by a con man.

[MASON KENT] Male, 35–40. A tough rich guy. He is a billionaire collector, obsessed with amassing troves of valuable wine.

[SHANE] Male, 26, model handsome, scruffy. A bad boy Ashton Kutcher. His affair with a wealthy older trophy wife leads to him being suspected of murder when her husband dies from being poisoned.

[HUTTON MAYS AKA THE NOSE] Male, 40's, effete. One of the world's foremost wine critics.

[AIMEE] Female, early 20's, blond, extremely fresh-faced and innocent. While pursuing an acting career, she makes ends meets by working as an escort for the "Farmer’s Daughters" dating service, providing the "full girlfriend experience" for a wealthy, obese 55 year old man who has convinced her he is going to leave his wife for her.

[LOY] Male, 30s–40s, foreign: Asian, Latino, or East Indian, with slight accent. The devoted houseman and butler to a wealthy wine connoisseur on the Upper East Side.

[BING CULLMAN] Male, 50's, overweight or obese, unattractive – but always able to attract beautiful women thanks to his vast fortune. Living on the Upper East Side, almost no one suspects that he is actually the "Bernie Madoff of wine" – running a massive fraud in which he sells counterfeit wines for exorbitant sums. Days before the 10 year cut-off in his pre-nup, he cruelly informs his beautiful younger wife that he is divorcing her – and the small settlement she will be left with is about what he would have paid a prostitute over ten years.

[ANGELICA] Female, 40. A clean-cut mom – you would never guess that she was a drug-addicted prostitute in her younger days. Acquainted with Det. Eames when she previously worked vice, Angelica credits Eames with helping her get on the straight and narrow. She now runs a (mostly) legit dating service which provides “the full girlfriend experience.”

[VALERIE BALON] Female, 27, gorgeous, French, with accent. An accomplished sommelier. Extremely smart young New York professional.

[AGENT MORTON] Male, 30s–40s, any ethnicity. FBI fraud investigator.

[ERNST FASSBINDER] Male, 40s–50s, Austrian. A character type. An eccentric expert on wine.

[JANICE] Female, 55. The first wife of a recently deceased wealthy man, she was tossed over for a younger model.

Very very intersting characters. Wonderful, we'll meet someone of Alex's past and maybe Bobby will speak German again.
