Barack Obama Cartoon 
ZD1942440
I'm working on a short animated video about the playful antics between Barack Obama and Joe Biden as the two buddies figure out what to do after the presidency. Think of them as Calvin and Hobbes: Obama is the serious one that tries to keep the playful, childlike Biden realistic and out of trouble.

Could you please deliver an audition for the part of Obama in the attached script? I have also attached a storyboard animatic video to give you some context as to what this video is about. Don't feel like you need to match the performance of the current temp audio that's in there.

Obama only has 27 words, so if selected, we will expect multiple read throughs/options in the audio file you send back. Thanks so much! Let me know if you have any questions!

Script Details

Yes
N/A 
INT. Barack Obama’s office in his D.C. suburb home

It is a few months after Donald Trump’s inauguration. Obama is sitting at his desk, writing his memoir after his eight years as president of the United States.

BARACK OBAMA
It was the best of times, and now it’s the worst of times…
(scribbles out writing, laughs under his breath)
Just kidding.

Obama mumbles something quietly, his pen tapping against his desk. Through the window behind his desk, a rope ladder falls in the background. Obama hears the crash behind him, and perks up.

BARACK OBAMA
Hmm…?

EXT. Barack Obama’s backyard
Cut outside. Obama sees a pile of rope/wood garbage in a heap in his backyard.

JOE BIDEN
I just wanted give you a way up, too!

BARACK OBAMA
Is that yours?

JOE BIDEN
It’s yours! I was gonna save it for your Christmas in July present...


BARACK OBAMA is utterly confused and straight-faced.
JOE BIDEN
(aside)
But you’re snooping in Santa’s sack early!

BARACK OBAMA notices the ladder on the ground.

BARACK OBAMA
What’s going on, Joe?

JOE BIDEN
Ah heck…

Biden produces a gun and fires into the air at the tree above. A small USA flag pops out of the barrel. The BANG startles awake hundreds of squirrels in the tree, who begin to run vigorously in hamster wheels. The wheels — connected to ropes and pulleys — reel back a curtain that reveals a jury-rigged White House treehouse sitting in a tree.

JOE BIDEN
It’s the Thunderden!

EXT. BARACK OBAMA’s backyard

Cut back to a high-angle shot of JOE BIDEN and BARACK OBAMA looking up at the treehouse.

BARACK OBAMA
Is that a White House… treehouse clubhouse…?

JOE BIDEN
Don’t tell Michelle.
