Wanted: One talented, charming black man

WANTED:

One charming black man who has the 'wow' factor.


A black actor is being sought to play a musician in Season 4 of the 1920's-set British costume drama, "Downton Abbey."

This will be a first for the wildly-popular PBS series.

You'll be seeing Jack Ross, introduced as part of a storyline about race relations in the time period.

According to the casting notes sent out to various agents, the show is looking for someone who is:

"Male, 25-30. A musician [singer] at an exclusive club in the 20's. He's black and very handsome. A real man [not a boy] with charm and charisma."

The right actor should "ideally be able to sing brilliantly."

"Overall, he should be a very attractive man with a certain wow factor," the notes said.

Any ideas as to who should play the role?
