MARTY MURPHY – male lead, 55-65 – blue-collar, a community man with a fierce sense of loyalty and of the way the world should work. Tough but charming. Capable of changing moods on a dime.
MARY MURPHY – female lead, 55-65 – a woman of faith, sweet but never saccharine. A loving mother and very devoted wife, who has made a life out of looking past the faults of those she loves.
SAL MURPHY – male lead, 30-40 – ambitious, smart, a born-again Manhattanite. An innate sense of humor and warmth have been chipped away at by an unforgiving family, but they’re still there.
BRIAN MURPHY – male supporting, 28-35 – a recovering user and all-around bad ass. Inherited his father’s charm and quick laugh; until a recent stint in prison, he lived a dangerously charmed life of being rewarded for the wrong things.
PHILIP CARTER – male supporting, 55-65 – a retired auto-mechanic/body-shop owner, a friendly man with an easy sense of humor, a natural peacekeeper.
ANDREA CARTER – female supporting, 55-65 – funny, shrewd, and opinionated;the kind of great friend and strong woman who quickly becomes more sister than friend.
EMILY MANCINI – female supporting, 28-35 – Brian’s former high school sweetheart; now a wry, self-aware woman coming to terms with a crumbling marriage and the fact that life at 30 doesn’t look like what she thought it would.
