BIG BLUE (as herself)
Big Blue is new to the acting world but what she lacks in experience she more than makes up for with her larger than life presence. Meticulous in her preparation for the role, she can be difficult to work with. When on set, she demands that the cast and crew avoid ever making eye contact with her and insists that she have final cut on all episodes she appears in. Fools For Hire director, Neil Every, says "she is the biggest pain in the ass I've ever worked with". Big Blue will be making several appearances throughout Season 2.
ALICE CAVERS (Alice)
Alice has been involved in Fools For Hire not only as the role of Mike's daughter but also as the machine gun wielding maniac known as Gator. She has also worked on set as a production assistant gaining a valuable perspective on webseries production. She has completed a film acting class at New Image College and is currently in the Gateway Theatre Academy. She is delighted to work with Fools For Hire - although she really didn't have a choice. Her dad threatened to ground her if she didn't...
HANNAH CAVERS (Hannah)
Hannah has been acting since the age of 5 and has taken drama classes at every opportunity given. She is very excited about playing the role of "Mike's daughter" and feels as if this was the role she was born to play. She was not at all forced to be part of this sick, insane enterprise. Hannah is planning to use her new found fame to get an agent, acquire more lucrative roles and escape the madness that is her dad's career.
P.S. Please, please for the love of God, send help.

BENJAMIN HARRISON (Ben)
To say that Benjamin is highly motivated would be a colossal understatement! He took up Mixed Martial Arts at the age of three, starred in a Ragu commercial that went viral last year (winning a Silver Clio Award in the process) and recieved a Leo Award nomination for his role in Season 1 of Fools For Hire. He's excited to be back for Season 2 especially because of what he gets to do to Mike...!

She's also thrilled to have one of her songs featured in the soundtrack for Episode 3 of Season 2.
JENNIFER MCLEAN (Janet)

ERIC BREKER (Eric)
Eric recently completed a community college day course in acting. Well, he watched the class through the window, at a distance, (damn restraining orders). Despite his apparent lack of experience, he has an impressive list of credits. He is very proud to not have cleaned out what little catering there was on Fools For Hire and his greatest achievement to date was getting the crap beaten out of him by Lucy Liu. Oh yeah, and having kids.

NICK HARRISON (Nick)
An accomplished stunt man, sword master, tv and film actor, theater director, radio personality and doctor (yes, really, he has a doctorate in theater), Nick is nothing like the character he plays in Fools For Hire. However, he does love Star Wars, appreciates good cosplay and is rumored to have once played a well known "goofy" pooch at a world famous theme park...
