Expert's post
The meaning of the sentence is the following

he was a comedian so the directors were reluctant to employ him for a role at the opposite of his nature as actor.

So C is the only answer that fits the ballpark.

Notice how the sentence implies in both cases a lead role. So, for instance, A is wrong
