"Late Night Classics presents GORILLA!" had its first primary cast read through this weekend. Luckily, everything went gangbusters. If you're making a comedy, the rule is always cast funny people. We've got that covered.
SARA DUPLANCIC, stars as Anna, a young woman with a bizarre connection to the Gorilla in question. Sara joins "GORILLA!" straight from her successful leading role in Ottawa Little Theatre's production of "Trying" (left).
FRANCIS FISK, puts his degree in philosophy to good use as Stephen, Anna's boyfriend whose quest for a logical solution to the "gorilla problem" is constantly thwarted.
PAUL WASHER is Officer Landis, the greying cop who remembers the first time a gorilla attacked the city. Problem is, he doesn't remember much of anything else! Paul's credits include "Shoot 'Em Up" and "16 Blocks".
SHERRY THURIG is Mimsy, the only woman who can convince her Rat Pack era obsessed ex, now a drunk in a dinner jacket, to take down the evil beast as he once did before. Sherry has done a whole mess of theater and film, including the Brett Kelly directed horror classic "The Bonesetter".
