"You don't understand. I nailed it." Dyer Cambell grabbed his best friend, Harry Verns, by the shoulders and started his Tigger bounce. "I didn't just nail it…I fucking nailed it, man. That part was written for me-"
"Except for one main thing…" Harry looked over his shoulder at him with that look. It was enough to make him stop bouncing, but not enough to wipe the shit eating grin off his face.
He nudged Harry and continued to his car. "Aw come on, you're supposed to be my best friend. Be happy for me, I got the final call back. Rumour has it only two people were called back for the Micall part. If the other guy is who I think, I got this, man. Down the shots and spank the ladies because I'm in like Flynn."
"And right there, that's your problem-the ladies. You heard the same thing I did when we passed the director's office. And Then There Were Two is a gay dramedy, they want gay actors to play the two male leads. Sure they love you, but they aren't going to hire you."
"That's bullshit. They didn't say they wouldn't hire me. The director was just telling the bigwigs what they wanted to hear. Why would they tell me to come back-again, may I add-if they weren't seriously wanting me?" Dyer clicked the key fob twice and unlocked the doors on his hand-me-down Rav4, a gift from his Aunt Pattie.
Harry climbed in next to him and buckled up. "Oh, so they aren't seriously wanting the other guy they called back too? He isn't bouncing all over the place, cussing like a sailor about how he's practically got the part also?"
"Downer." Dyer started the engine and pulled into the flow of traffic.
Harry sighed, "Look, I'm not trying to be a hard ass. I want you to get this part, you know I do. This show is a great concept, it could make a no namer's career. But I don't like the idea of you not looking at what might happen. This network is trying to get ahead of the curve with the GLBTQ crowd, they are pulling out all the stops to do this right from the get go. You've seen the press these auditions have gotten. Hell, we even had to use the back entrance to the locked parking lot. They will be blasted to hell and back if they cast a straight man as one of the leading gay roles. It will Titanic them before they even get around to shooting the pilot episode."
