Role / Project description: Character description: 30's white male, neutral American accent. Eager, determined, self made.
A German immigrant who arrived in America as a destitute 17-year-old, Julius Schmid had to sell what little clothing he had for food. Born partially paralyzed, he needs crutches to navigate the world.
Determined to prove that he’s got as much value as any able-bodied person, he pulls himself up by his bootstraps, getting a job working at a sausage factory. Inspired by the struggles he sees on the streets of New York City’s notorious Tenderloin District, he soon leverages his contacts to start his own illicit business on the side, selling a life-saving product that was once illegal in America... condoms.
Battling law enforcement, Schmid then revolutionizes the industry by introducing the rubber condom, bringing about the legalization of the condom and ushering contraception into the modern age. After a lifetime of struggle, his tenacity and grit make him a wealthy and respected businessman, named by Fortune magazine as “The King of Condoms.”
