Seeking:Seeking [JAMES AGEE]. Male. Caucasian. 35-45 years old. Brown hair (no blondes) and light-colored eyes (preferable but not required). Agee was an untidy man with a mountaineer’s body (tall, long boned but not massive). A MANS MAN and attractive in a bad boy kind of way. Vivacious, thoughtful and charismatic, Agee charmed everyone with his discernible Southern accent and manners. His slablike hands were very expressive when he spoke.Born in a cultivated and upper-middle class home, Agee and his father went to the cinema to see Charlie Chaplin’s films. He later became a novelist, journalist, poet, screenwriter and film critic. A sensitive and spiritual writer, he brought film criticism to a new level of intellect that changed the public view of what film could be. He relied on liquor and Benzedrine to carry him through life, at times experiencing dark knights of the soul.When asked to write Timecover-story reaction to the bombing of Hiroshima, Agee became obsessed with the fate of mankind in the new world of atomic threat and channeled his worst fears into the screenplay The Tramp’s New World. A reflection of Agee’s poetic imagination and deep appreciation for Chaplin, Agee also wrote about his efforts to interest Chaplin in his film ideas and how following these attempts, Chaplin became a dear friend and profound influence in both his life and art. LEAD.**Talent must resemble the real James Agee. See photo reference by visiting the link provided in the application section of this notice.**
