The Amazing Cynicalman, a filmic adaptation of Matt Feazell's  long-running comic strip character, Cynicalman, will be filming next 
spring. We are now looking for actors to fill out the cast...there are still a few key roles that need to be filled, as well as many secondary 
roles, bit parts and extras.


Compensation for key roles is based on a back-end points system TBD, and
will likely range from nothing to very little. Compensation for  secondary and extras is film credit.
Come out and meet us and bring your talented friends.
Also, anyone interested in any aspect of filming may come.
Aaron Trudgeon, Producer


Coming—Summer 2010
The Amazing Cynicalman movie, currently in production, is an all-ages family feature; a screwball comedy with a hero, a villain, a boy, a girl... and zombies. And it’s 100% made in Michigan, USA.
Based on the long-running and award-winning Cynicalman comic strip by Matt Feazell, the story follows John Q. Cynicle on his first day on the job at the Board of Superheros™ as he finds his place on the team, meets a strangely fascinating girl and gets mixed up in a dastardly plot to conquer the world with an army of zombies.

John Q. Cynicle
A recent college grad in his late twenties, looking for a good job and a place of his own. Instead he finds a room at Mom & Dad’s Boarding House and a temp job at the Board of Superheros™. When Professor Quidley gives him a spare superhero helmet and a pair of blue sweat pants, he becomes The Amazing Cynicalman.
Played by:Jim Mackey

Edie Haskell
A smart and short-tempered redhead in her late twenties. She’s the receptionist at the Board of Superheros™ on assignment from the Acme Temp Agency, and she simply can’t STAND superheroes.
