    Hi, Lloyd!

    This is the first letter I have ever written to a professional, such as yourself, so please, just bear with me.
    My name is Noah, and I happen to be an enormous fan of Troma and many other low-budget independent films. I reside in Sydney, Australia, and would love to just get away from it all and escape! Acting has always been a dream of mine, and is something i’d love to pursue and be part of, no matter what! Drama was always my favorite subject in school. I graduate from high school in less than five months, and i turn 18 this Halloween!

    I’ll keep the resume simple…California boy, saw The Toxic Avenger when I was 14 and it changed my life. Been wanting to be a part of Troma ever since but life got in the way. Took film classes at Sonoma State. Wrote, directed and produced some half ass shorts and acted in random quarter ass local productions.

    In 2015 my father (also a Troma fan) died of ALS and I caught my wife of 12 years in a lesbian relationship with the nanny. In 2016 I was in an accident that broke my spine and ate up a year of bullshit with surgery, doctors and lawyers. In 2017 my house burned to the ground in the northern California wildfire storm. I lost everything.

    I’m 46 years old, I sleep on an air bed on the floor of an office that belongs to a 35 year old Afghan vet who suffers from severe PTSD and binge drinks in cycles until he tastes his own liver. I don’t see how anything could be worse and doing anything with or for Troma, actually sounds like a step up.

    I have some pocket change and can live fairly independent on my own. I certainly can afford a ticket to the east coast. I have contacts in New Jersey, less than an hour from Brooklyn, that I can stay with but also anything short of an inflatable twin mattress in a tent pitched in a Hell’s Kitchen alley is a doable step up from the whiskey drenched urinal I live in now.

    I’ll work for finger sandwiches and Capri Suns. I’ll work for Chicken in a Biscuit crackers with Bacon and Cheddar Easy Cheese from an aerosol can, but only the Bacon and Cheddar kind, give me some dignity. I’ll work for nacho Lunchables and a chance to see random tits. Good odds that that’s an option, no?

    The following video clip is a short I acted in most recently. It’s all that survived the fire. I play the main focused character, Bruno.

    Just let me act in your movie you lousy douchebags.


    -Craig Fountain
