We are looking for African American males (age mid-30's to early 40's) to play the role.
Character Description: 30 to 40 years old, African, Black male. Charming and charismatic. A young politician who rose to popularity as one of the youngest Black politicians to hold a state office. Gifted with charming good looks and charisma, it is his enigmatic persona and extremely private lifestyle that is alluring to his constituents, especially female ones. As a child, young Lionel was often bullied for his Gullah speech and rural ways; he took his struggles to make friends and channeled them into a way to find success, by leaving his Gullah heritage off the coast. At least so it seemed, until he discovers his calling as a conjure man.
