Story 1

Sam Marcus, a 23 year old college student suffering from disinterest with work and socializing, reunites with his cousin, Lily, whom he hasn't seen since childhood, and may be the only key to improving his self-image and connection with the friends and family members around him.

As Sam Marcus. Based on his performance and appearance from Teen Wolf and The Maze Runner would do great as a man with his own vulnerabilities and the chemistry he can have with some of characters based on his wit.

Hasn't done too much lately after The Mortal Instruments but I'm assuming she's keeping a low profile in the mean time. Can really do great as Sam's cousin based on her charisma and joy she brings to some of her characters including some of her own personal conflicts she deals with.

Check out Stuck in Love and Love, Rosie if you want to get a better idea of what kind of character she should portray.

Zoey Boswell, the tall and beautiful girl that Sean runs into years later after High School.

Pursuing her dreams as a visual artist while working part time as a waitress in a cafe, Zoey gets along with her best friend Eve, who enjoys screwing around more than staying on-task in the job.

Zoey had been bullied based on her height and former physical appearance, but somehow managed to turn the tables on Sean, unaware of his damaged past. When she sees Sean at the cafe one day, they seemingly connect with each other and let bygones be bygones.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:

Eve, Zoey's pretty but lazy and funny best friend. Known for her childish pranks and smart-ass attitude, Eve tends to get on Zoey's nerves but loves her like a sister. When Sean comes to the cafe, she is curious about the bully that Zoey still used to know.

(She is the one on the left.)

Dana, Michael's girlfriend and Zoey's old friend.

Minor Supporting character role in this segment.

Story 3

Three best friends, Roxanne (A black-haired British woman), Stacy (clumsy blonde but witty), and Rachel (A hot Australian party animal) run into some old friends (athletic Bradley, British author George, and former football player Daniel) from college that reconnect with them to celebrate the happy holidays. But, one of the friends has a secret that they're not willing to share that will test their friendships.

Roxanne, the strong-willed and hot British-Australian girl and long-time friend of Stacy and her older cousin Rachel.

Running into Bradley, George, and Daniel, she feels more interested in Bradley despite George's advances towards her back in the old college days, but hides a secret she isn't willing to share with her friends that occurred in her old college days.

The secret she tells is left up to your imagination, regarding the relationship between Roxanne and George, Bradley and her friends.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:

Stacy, the clumsy blonde who also has a great sense of humor but is very warm-hearted with her friends, is the "newbie" of the group, while traveling around the world in hope to pursue a singing career.

While meeting Roxanne and Rachel's college friends for the first time, Stacy is in love with George because of his passion in poetry, despite his interest in Roxanne, and feels setback from the group in some moments.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:

Rachel, the hot party crazy and extroverted Australian cousin of Roxanne who wouldn't last one year without partying and making new friends.

Running into their college friends, Daniel gets along well with Rachel, but the eldest friend of the group mentors Stacy into bonding with her new friends and to adapt with other kinds of people.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:

Bradley, Roxanne's love interest and a one of a kind charismatic runner for track, hoping to get into the Olympics.

When Bradley finds Roxanne acting strangely while staying in London, he begins to realize that his close friend is hiding a secret from the group regarding Roxanne, Bradley and George that possibly has to do with their romances.

George, a writer and up-and-coming musician. He is friends with Roxanne and her cousin Rachel, but takes an interest in Stacy, despite his attempts to rekindle his romance with Roxanne.

With his love for music and interest shared with Stacy, George feels that he is better off being with the new girl in the group than with Roxanne.

When he is indirectly told by Daniel and Rachel about a secret Roxanne is hiding from her friends, George slowly drifts away from his friends, feeling betrayed.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:

Just a voice over and a brief cameo for the movie.
My one and only choice for the Narrator. If you watch Star Trek and American Horror Story, then you'll see why he is perfect for narrating certain aspects of the story (Think of Nicolas Cage in Lord of War) or just briefly in the beginning and end, based on the voice he has sounds like he could really tell a good story to people. :)

Here's a video of him narrating the Star Trek Audiobook:

Based on a short story I was working on (currently rewriting) that involves a Christmas comedy with a mix of slapstick humor, punchlines, and mainly drama around the characters.

Plot: A series of Christmas stories are told from various perspectives in this comedy, dramatic, and romantic movie. These stories exhibit the importance of love, friendship, family, hope, and acceptance.

Inspirations: Love Actually, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Babel.
