There’s something so strange about relearning someone you almost already knew.
Chris lives a busy life. People cluster like pixels on a screen, forgotten all but for the big picture they make up. Actors on a project, writers in meetings, friends of friends of friends. There’s a special place in his life for family and friends and people he’s dated or slept with and the rest just… fall into the background - until they get dredged up for some reason.
That’s why it’s a surprise to see Joey Richter’s name on the casting list for his latest movie. Chris hesitates, almost tempted to say no just to avoid awkward conversations, but his brief introductions to Joey were never anything memorable for unpleasant reasons and he remembers a distant time ago when he sat in his bedroom in Clovis, California and watched this guy on his computer screen.
Joey makes it through the first couple of rounds of auditions without Chris giving any input, but when it comes down to Joey and a couple other guys Chris gives them a nudge in the right direction.
