Role # 4 Alan Raleigh
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Benjamin's father, Alan is the most openly rude because he frequently interrupts the meeting by talking on his cell phone.

He claims that his son is a savage and doesn’t see any point in trying to change him. He is openly sexist and dismissive of those he sees as his inferiors. Of the four, he is the first to drop any sense of pretense or adherence to social niceties.
