Casting for "Connection" has begun!! Guess the actors and WIN!! :)

We've finally begun casting in earnest for "Connection". Very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. Since we are first reaching out to high-visibility actors, we have to approach them one at a time and then wait for a response before moving onto the next (if necessary). So, not surprising, but a lot of waiting. They're busy people and if they even give it a second of thought, I'm flattered. But with April looming, it is a bit stress-inducing.

In any case, I'm excited about the list of actors we're approaching. I can't say who specifically we are approaching first, but I will give you the list of potentials. Try to guess who among them we are going out to first (from both the male and female leads. If you guess right, I'll send you a jar of Love Lotion to use however you please (if your sex life is a bit slow, keep in mind it makes car seats soft and supple). 

Note that we are trying to keep our reach-outs realistic and there are definitely some on this list who are wildly unrealistic and wouldn't waste a fart on our script, let alone read it.
