In the end I played a different role. It's really ridiculous.
We had a vote in which everyone could vote for everyone's part, saying before the vote that we'd accept any outcome.
We had the outcome. The girls didn't like their outcome. And one of the other guys really wanted to play the pedophile, though I was voted for the part.
Huge discussion errupts. We have another vote.
Same outcome.
Same discussion. The girls end up switching after much debate and the guy keeps asking if he can't play the pedophile as it's the most challenging role according to him and he never gets to when we work with a director. I said fine.

Gotta admitt, he did it swell. Very swell.

If they had suggested you for a hero role, would you now be asking yourself "why"?

Yeah. I would. Glen or Matthew make far better heroes than me.
They are more handsome, for one. Which, as far as heroes in most stories in theatre plays go, counts.
And they are no worse actors than me.

As you said yourself, the pedophile part is the most intriguing and has the most depth. So maybe your friends simply see you as someone intriguing who has depth.

It is a role. It is not as though you are an actual pedophile.

Besides, are theatre nerds capable of bullying?

We changed roles after voting twice and coming up with the same results. (Me as the pedophile.)
Matthew however really wanted to play that part as he doesn't usually get the biggest roles.
He said he wasn't bothered if he had to play the other part, but couldn't let it go either. I told him he'd make a marvelous pedophile and we switched roles.
He did a great job. Though part of me now wished I was the one to play it. :D



And @Sorginak : Bullying? Not really, but our ego's are so inflated they don't take much to get bruised.

If there is anybody on the planet that this should be obvious to, well......you'll never attain the title of Captain obvious at this rate.
Q for theists; how can there be freewill and miracles? And, how can prayer exist in an environment as regimented as "gods plan"?
