ANTHONY PINNUNZIATO – Male, late 30’s. Our Everyman. Stereotypical Italian-American boy next door type.  LEAD 
LARRY FANAZZI – Male, any age.  An Outrageously over-the-top exercise and healthy living icon.  Flamboyant and dramatic and naturally comedic.  LEAD 
ANDREW POLINSKI – Male, late 30’s or 40’s.  A distinguished and very handsome gentleman with the charm and demeanor to win over every gay man.  LEAD 
AUNT TONIANN – Female, late 40’s or 50’s.  Eccentric Italian-American woman with lots of attitude and absolutely no filter.  Comedic Actress.  Supporting 
CONNIE/WAITRESS – Female, 30’s or 40’s.  Comedic sketch actress who can pull off multiple roles.  Connie is an Italian-American lipstick lesbian with a good heart but lacks common sense.  The Atlantic City waitress is a hilarious scene stealer who barges in with the only entrance and exit.  Supporting 
LUCIA FUCCIO – Female, 30’s or 40’s.  Brassy and trendy lesbian.  Supportive of everyone around her but naturally neurotic.  Supporting 
NATHANIEL HOLLINGSWORTH – Male, 30’s.  A young billionaire entrepreneur who is too handsome and confident for his own good.  Supporting
