Who are Casting Directors?
Definition: casting directors are hired to cast talent for movies, shows, original features, commercials, TV programs, print work, fashion shows, runway, etc.

*Note: Usually casting directors will contact your agent they after they review your headshots and resume Most casting directors only accept submissions by mail. Consequently, we do not suggest calling or stopping into an office without an appointment, as it will probably only aggravate the casting director.

In the performing arts, casting means selecting the actors, dancers, singers, or other talent for a live or recorded performance. It typically involves auditions before a panel that may include the production's producer, director, and choreographer. In the early stages of the process, the candidate performers may present prepared audition pieces such as monologues or songs. Later stages may involve groups of candidates attempting material from the work under consideration in various combinations; the casting panel considers both the talent of the individual actors and the chemistry of their combination.

Casting calls may go out to the public (typical for community theatre), to professional and semi-professional local actors (for supporting roles in theatre and film) or to specifically selected actors (for leading roles, especially in films).

Major productions that need to fill hundreds or even thousands of roles may use a casting director and a specialized staff; the last word remains with the director and producer.

At least in the early stages and for extras, casting may be geographically decentralized. This may be because the production will be shot or staged far from studio centers, or to tap a specific market. Casting of celebrity performers may follow strictly personal channels, e.g. direct contact with the director.
