Andre Kriegman and Calvin "Cal" Gabriel are the two main characters of the 2003 motion picture "Zero Day" written by Ben Coccio and Christopher Coccio.
They were both portrayed by Andre Keuck and Cal Robertson.
Andre and Cal are two young men responsible for planning and executing a massacre at their school. The true motives are never really mentioned, but before the end of the movie it's hinted that bullying in combination with a lot of anger and frustration contributed to the tragedy depicted in the movie.
Andre is somewhat average looking. He has short, dark hair, acne, and stands at 5'9. He is often seen wearing cargo pants and Calvin has white blond shaggy hair, light eyebrows, blue eyes and stands at 5' 7". He is often seen wearing his "ARMY" shirt and black pants.
Andre seems to be filled with a lot of aggression and hate, which surfaces when he is speaking negatively about people and also in the form of "revenge acts". A good example is the scene where the duo throws eggs against the house of their archenemy Brad Hoff, the captain of the school's wrestling team. Calvin is more down to earth, but sometimes acts socially awkward, suggesting he might have problems properly interacting with people.
- Andre and Calvin are based on the true event of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who were the perpetrators of the Columbine High School massacre. Andre's personality is similar to Harris, and Calvin's personality is similar to Klebold.
- Calvin is seen wearing a Pearl Jam shirt at one point in the movie, this could be a reference to their song Jeremy by Pearl Jam, which talks about a troubled kid who ends up being a school shooter.
- The directors voice is heard multiple times in the dentist scene behind the camera.
