Job Description

I'm the publisher of a modern-day retelling of Huck Finn set on the LA River. This is the role of Miguel, an undocumented immigrant who goes on the run with Huck.

Here's a bit about Miguel:
- Early 20's. Tends horses for a wealthy lesbian couple in the San Fernando Valley.
- Has a wife and young daughter. But they're currently living in Arizona until the family has enough money to move.
- Crossed the border illegally with his father when he was a young teenager (from Zacatecas)
- Takes on a fatherly role with Huck, but also sometimes teasing
- Speaks fluent English, but perhaps with a slight Mexican accent. Sprinkles in Spanish words and phrases.
- Very comfortable with animals, both domestic and wild. A bit of a naturalist.
- A bit superstitious

The attached scene is when Huck meets Miguel. Also attaching a traditional Mexican folk song -- a corrido -- that Miguel sings at one point on their journey.

Thank you!
