Important message from Jennifer Bender

We are in unprecedented times. With the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the speed at which everything is changing, we are all continuing to adapt as best we can. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our community, our offices remain closed until further notice. Additionally, most of the shows we cast have gone down until we all feel confident it is safe to get back to work. We understand these are difficult times for everyone and will continue to communicate to you as things progress.

On behalf of myself and all of us at Central Casting, we wish you safety and good health. Please care for yourself and those around you. Hoping we all get back to work soon!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Bender

#tbt to 1937 and one of the last times we had to close our doors to the public. However this was not the result of a health crisis but instead the fact that there were just too many people (around 12,000) on our books to provide work for at that time in Hollywood. We can’t wait to open our doors and see the entertainment industry thrive again. But until then, make the most of this unique time and do everything you can to stay safe and healthy! 👍
