Dear Ms. Webster,
Over the past year Alias has become a show that I look forward to watching each week on ABC. The unique and exciting casting on the show has definitely been one of the key reasons for my enjoyment of the series. In particular, David Anders as the character of Mr. Sark.
I wanted to take a moment and bring to your attention one of my favorite actors, Mr. Anthony Cistaro. Recently Anthony portrayed the role of scheming billionaire Kenneth Irons on Witchblade, and he did an excellent job showing the many facets and motivations of Irons' very ambiguous character.
Witchblade, of course, is not Anthony's only on-screen credit. He also made guest appearances on shows like Cheers, where he played the Frenchman Henri, and Seinfeld, where he played one of Elaine's many boyfriends. Anthony has also done stagework, and has a fabulous talent for various accents, as well as French.
I am writing to ask that you consider contacting Anthony's representatives and having him in to read for a part on Alias. Any part. I am certain that he would only need a single audition to convince you of his considerable abilities.
Anthony is represented by The Artists Agency, and they can be reached by mail at 1180 S. Beverly Drive, Suite 301, Los Angeles, CA, 90035--or by phone at (310)877-7779.
I am including a candid photo of Anthony with this letter.
I am not connected in any way to actor Anthony Cistaro or his representatives. This mailing is an entirely unaffiliated fan-run and fan-conceived campaign, totally independent of any of the above-referenced parties.
Thank you very much for your time.
Here is the basic breakdown of the letter:
1 - Opener: Comment on Alias, and previous job of casting.
2 - Intent: Begin to explain motivation behind letter.
3 - Logic: Explain why Anthony would make a good casting choice for Alias.
4 - State Mission: Short but sweet.
5 - Contact: Information to help them find Anthony.
6 - Include the photo. If you wish to send it as a 5x7 instead of an 8x10 as it is here (though the 8x10 is quite inspirational), that is your own prerogative.
7 - Disclaimer: Always include the disclaimer stating that this campaign is in no way affiliated with Anthony, etc.
8 - Thanks: Remember, they don't have to read your letter. Thank them for their time.
9 - Demographic: Give a name and location. If you like, include the URL for this site.
Disclaimer: Alias.Witchblade Mission:Cistaro is not connected in any way to actor Anthony Cistaro or his representatives, the television shows Alias or Witchblade, or any television network or production company.
