Misfits Getting Three New Characters, Here’s What We Know About Them

Would be young offender super powered types, you better move fast. There are going to be at least three new main characters in the next series of Misfits, and the show’s casting directors are currently accepting applications.

But the closing date is today.

Here’s how the three roles have been described on the casting call:

Jess (Female)

Jess is a kind of female version of Larry David – smart and articulate, She’s the person who will say the un-sayable, the person who’ll question social norms and etiquette.
Jess hates people who bullshit and lie to her.

Finn (Male)

Finn has a childlike naively optimistic view of life, he’s always eager to please and enthusiastic about life.
Finn talks a lot and often uses this to try and talk himself out of difficult or awkward situations. He is very funny.

Alex (Male)

Alex is the sexiest guy on the estate. He is super good looking, all the girls fancy him but for some reason he is very standoffish, he doesn’t seem interested in girls. Everyone reads this as being extremely suspicious and suspect it’s power related.

Each role is being cast from 18-25 year olds of any ethnicity with any accent. Your agent will know what to do next. You do have an agent, right? If not, get one. You’ve got… a few more hours, at least. Easy.

Sounds to me like Jess is the prize part, and probably going to be the most popular of these new characters. Who doesn’t like a bit of Larry David, eh? Even in a youg woman’s body/orange jump suit combo?

Thanks to Little Bleeder Mr. Pricklepants for the tip off.
