Casting Director

Responsible for helping to gather a number of actor candidates for a given role in a film or television production. The casting director reads the script and meets with the producer, director and sometimes the writer, to get an idea of the “type” of person a given role calls for. The casting director then meets with any number of individuals and begins narrowing down the field. Once a handful of hopefuls have been identified, the casting director presents them to the director, producer or writer of the project.
