ACTOR LUKE FORBES TALKS "JOSIAH" WITH TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT (2713 hits)

Actor Luke Forbes is no stranger to the big screen in a live action short film "JOSIAH"
Forbes portrays " Brandon", a talented actor who has yet to break through, auditions for what might be another stereotypical part in a period television series. Being the only Black man in a Hollywood setting is not unusual for him, but when something unexpected occurs in this casting session, Brandon must contend with three other perspectives in the room for a role that could actually be his big break.

Writer/Director Kyle Laursen’s live-action short film Josiah examines issues inside the creative process of a casting room, excavating unconscious stereotyping and complex power dynamics based on race, class and gender. The stellar cast includes Kevin Dunn (VEEP), Luke Forbes (Crown Heights), Melanie Chandra (Code Black) and Mather Zickel (Better Things). This topical film will premier online, in competition at the Palm Springs International ShortFest this June.
