About Him

Living... in Los Angeles. At least, he used to live there when he was a screenwriter. His got fired after his last movie, Bay of Pigs. Not only did he lose his job, but he also lost his family. He's been drinking ever since.

Visiting... Las Vegas to drink himself to death. That is not an exaggeration; that is his actual plan. He cashed in all of his money, paid his AmEx card, and sold his car. And he is going to use the money to spend $250 to $300 a day on booze for the next few weeks. Scotch is his poison of choice, but he'll drink anything.

Interests... drinking and spending time with Sera, a prostitute he met. It started off as a trick, but Ben didn't want to have sex. He just wanted her to stay with him. Then they had their first date, which was at some restaurant near her place. And soon after that, she asked him to move in with her.

Relationship Status... surprisingly good. He thinks he may actually be in love with Sera. As he says, "She's like some sort of antidote that mixes with the liquor and keeps me in balance. Sometimes I even think she's some sort of angel visiting me from one of my drunken fantasies." It's bittersweet for him, though, since his real plan is to die in Vegas. She was never part of his plan. He feels bad about forcing his twisted soul into her life.

Challenge... watching Sera go to work as a prostitute. He knows it's just her job and she'd never get involved romantically with a trick, but he still hates it. So he'll just grab another drink...

Personality... pathetic, to those who see him at bars. What they see is a drunk who can barely stand up and vomits all the time. Sera is the only person who really knows him, and she sees something better in him.
