Ripped from current headlines, this funny web series poses the question that actors and non-actors alike yearn to know: In a land of make believe, how can you believe in yourself? Meet Charles, an adorable, talented performer who desires to make a living as an actor. He has the goods, but because he's Korean-American, the roles he's called in for are Angry Chinese Waiter or Smart Korean Businessman. He yearns to be a leading man and not just a stereotyped side-note. One late night, he and his best friend Julia, who is also relegated to roles with no actual names, stumble upon an infomercial starring Robin Leach, who espouses the benefits of an acting class in which the participants can learn to compete with their more successful British counterparts by actually becoming British so that they can then play American. The friends decide to join the class, a group of misfit actors, all talented but limited by something they can't change, like age, ethnicity, or accent . . . or can they? Special Guest: Jane Austen.
