Registration FAQs

A Background Actor or extra is someone who performs in a show in a nonspeaking role, usually in the background. Central Casting registers Background Actors to appear in our legendary database. Every day, our in-house Casting Directors use that database to cast thousands of Background Actors to work on set, often for the following day.
Those without required documentation (unexpired originals only, no photocopies) to accompany the I-9 form will be turned away.

Must bring identification showing date of birth for the Age Verification form.
Please bring your current SAG-AFTRA card/receipt issued by SAG-AFTRA with you to registration.
Guests and pets cannot be accommodated.
You will not be admitted if you arrive after orientation has begun. Doors open 15 minutes beforehand, arrive early to ensure you get a seat.
Minors are required to bring the same identification as adults. Visit our Kids page for more information on minor registration.
Registration is approximately one hour.
Street and lot parking is available in the area at your own expense. The easiest parking is in the Superdome visitors lot adjacent to Benson Towers. We do not provide validation for any garages in the area.
We suggest upscale attire. Please arrive camera ready.

Yes, you will need to register at our New Orleans office to work in Louisiana.

Registration with Central Casting is a privilege, not a right. We respectfully reserve the right to refuse registration to anyone.

Central Casting is a participant in the E-Verify program. We will provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with information from each new employee’s I-9 form to confirm employment authorization.¬†Note: If the government cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, we are required to provide you with written instructions and an opportunity to contact the SSA and/or DHS before taking adverse action against you, including terminating your employment.
