actor needed for indie gangster drama bang bang

I recently heard from James Bak, a producer who is currently in pre-production with the indie feature film Bang Bang, "a raw, authentic, and artistic portrayal South-East Asian-American street gangs" to be directed by Byron Chan. Here's the short synopsis:
Justin is a troubled teen looking for a way out of the gang life. His best friend Charlie is a rich Taiwanese kid who lives in the nice part of town. Justin runs away from home after a fight with his Mom and takes refuge at Charlie's house while Charlie's parents are away on a prolonged business trip.

The murder of a fellow gang member avalanches into a full blown war with a rival gang. Caught in the midst of teenage angst, gang life, and alienation, the two friends find themselves heading down two different paths of life.
I'm told that they've already cast two of the lead roles -- David Huynh of Baby and Vietnamese American rapper Thai Ngo -- but they're still looking for an actor to play they key role of "Rocky," a gang leader that serves as an old brother figure in the story. They're particularly interested in actors who have actually lived "the street life."

If you're interested in the role, email your headshot and resume to bangbangmovie@gmail.com. For more details on the movie, which is obviously still coming together, visit the website here.
