The CEO of Xerox is ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange and will be holding an event where 3 actors ​portraying monks will be on hand to act as brand ambassadors. They will hand out pamphlets and must know a few bullet points about the new Xerox Messaging.

BROTHER DOMINIC is the younger, innocent and fresh, devoted monk, pure in his eagerness yet smart and savvy with his knowledge of modern day technology.  Wardrobe will be provided.

60s-70s, Caucasian Male, STRONG ACTOR, balding with silver hair. The ABBOTT is the oldest of the group, worldly and wise but not up to speed with the advancements of technology.  He gives BROTHER DOMINIC the important, monumental task of translating, reproducing and distributing documents worldwide.  Wardrobe will be provided.

[MONK #2]

Late 50s-60s, Caucasian Male, STRONG ACTOR, balding with gray hair.
