[THE CMMDR] Mid to late 50s, Caucasian, a schlep, a fool, a stunted, chunky, dumpy, squat, low-set little man; we want lumpy, pudgy, and tubby; a trunk-like short-legged also-ran of a man, talentless, a hack, a drudge. Submissions for the role should reads’ peon’ – someone who immediately is recognizable as an unsuccessful bankrupt boob with nothing to offer, a moronic blockheaded cretin, a twitty donkey-like dolt, a man who’s botched it all and is in decline; a defeated fiasco, a flash in the pan. He should be a washout, a wreck, a total loss as a human, deficient and deteriorating; the man is a bomb. The Cmmdr is literally a good-for-nothing, a never-was, this guy has flopped, he’s a dud, he’s a fucking loser, an insolvent, incompetent, incapable, inept, ineffectual, insufficient amateur. He’s a sinking ship who will never win. A useless unfit freak. Will consider incontinent actors as well. The more unskilled the better. Useless, out to lunch, an odious dead beat. SERIES REGULAR
[The ENSIGN] 55-62 years old, Caucasian, his friend SERIES REGULAR 10/13
