An FBI bank fraud agent leading the investigation and search for Frank Jr. A knowledgeable and habitual workaholic who idolizes the moment he catches his perp, but Frank Jr. is always one step ahead.

[FRANK ABAGNALE, SR] Male, 45-65. Any race/ethnicity. Frank Jr.’s father; an inspiration when it comes to swindling, but his ways are catching up to him.

[PAULA ABAGNALE] Female, 40-55. Any race/ethnicity. French accent. Frank Jr.’s gorgeous, elegant mother, born in France. She met Frank Sr. during the war, but has fallen out of love with him.

[BRENDA STRONG] Female, 20-30. Any race/ethnicity. A hard-working, beautiful young nurse with a big heart, who meets and falls in love with Frank Jr while he is posing as a doctor. Sweet, naïve and insecure, she comes to trust him but his true identity clouds her feelings. Strong Singer with a high belt.
