Would like to post interest for this thread, since it seems so entertainingly off the wall and lighthearted.
To that end, I'd like to play a sort of suave, professional, "straight-man", amongst the other oddballs at the station, either as co-anchor or roaming reporter. Courteous, confident, the picture of journalistic integrity, who is always sabotaged by either his own unwillingness to take credit, or else by everyone else's inexplicable refusal to take him seriously. Sort of like if everyone treated James Bond like Squidward Tentacles.
Or like Clark Kent if instead of taking off his shirt and becoming Superman, he never takes off his shirt. Ever. See that's his dirty secret: A gnawing, all-consuming clothes fetish. He's absolutely paralyzed of the idea that anyone will see him in anything less than business casual and he's never truly comfortable unless he's wearing a three piece suit. Of course, part of the character is that no-one ever appreciates what he's wearing (as much as he might appreciate, or even find himself compelled to most unprofessional actions by what they're wearing).
Sound like he could fit in, or do I need to separate those concepts a little bit more?
