An aspiring New York City method actor, Paul (Alex Karprovsky) takes on a part-time gig, performing the symptoms of various illnesses for the student doctors at a local school. Though he’s overlooked for the stage and screen, instead Paul attracts the eye of the medical instructure, who himself has a flair for the theatric. Another interesting side-project for Girls‘ actor Karprovsky, Michael Tyburski’s Actor Seeks Role is a smart and gently comic short with ambitions beyond its micro-scale budget.
