Bring your minor’s required documentation to your reserved Talent Onboarding session at our Georgia office. We cannot onboard your child without these documents and you will be turned away if you do not bring them to your reserved session.

At Talent Onboarding you will complete paperwork, an orientation, and your minor will take a photo for our casting platform.

Required Documentation

In accordance with federal law, all registrants/employees must bring the required documentation to complete a Form I-9. Central Casting cannot onboard/employ anyone who does not have their original I-9 documentation with them, even those who arrived on time. Ensure the name on the I-9 documentation matches the name the appointment was made under.

The federal government requires that for the Form I-9, minors are required to either present one original unexpired List A document, or an original unexpired List B and List C document combination. If presenting a List B document to an employer that participates in E-Verify (Central Casting), the employer can only see/use a List B document that includes a non-detachable photo of the minor. Per Federal Law, Central Casting is not permitted to onboard anyone, minor or adult, who does not have the required documentation.

Per federal law, the non-photo ID options in List B do not apply to minors pursuing employment with companies that are E-Verify participants (Central Casting). This statement has been issued by the federal government regarding minors and Form I-9:

Per federal law, because Central Casting is an E-Verify participant, parents or legal guardians cannot establish identity for a minor in any other way than by presenting either a List A document, or a combination of a List B document that contains a photograph and a List C document.

In order for Central Casting to obtain a work permit for your child, they must be issued a certification number from the state of Georgia. To obtain a certification number, visit the Georgia DOL website and fill out the short form. Once completed, you will receive an email with your child’s certificate number (consists of 1 letter and 4 numbers) within 1 business day. Bring this number when you register your minor at Central Casting. Children cannot work on any set without the certificate number, which Central Casting will use to obtain a work permit.

Talent Onboarding FAQs

  • What is a Background Actor?

    Background Actors perform in a nonspeaking role and usually appear in the background of scenes to make movies and TV shows more authentic. Central Casting is the leading background casting agency in the entertainment industry, placing adults and kids on set every day. Register with us for the opportunity to get your children cast as Background Actors and doubles in movies, TV shows, and other productions.


  • Does it cost money to sign up?

    Registering with Central Casting is free. There are no fees associated with employment.


  • What if my minor doesn’t have proper I-9 documentation?

    Those without required documentation (unexpired originals only, no photocopies) to accompany the I-9 form will be turned away.

    Must also bring identification showing date of birth for the Age Verification form.


  • Do I have to attend Talent Onboarding with my minor?

    All children ages 17 and under must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian to Talent Onboarding. Homeland Security permits only the parent or legal guardian to fill out the I-9 form.


  • Does my minor need a work permit?

    In order to be considered for work, each minor will need a certificate number issued by the state of Georgia on file with Central Casting. To obtain a certification number, visit the Georgia DOL website and fill out the short form. Once completed, you will receive an email with your child’s certificate number (consists of 1 letter and 4 numbers) within 1 business day. Bring this number when you register your minor at Central Casting. Children cannot work on any set without the certificate number, which Central Casting will use to obtain a work permit.


  • When do reservations become available?

    New sessions open up in Georgia exactly 3 days in advance. If all dates show “unavailable,” then sessions are either currently filled or not yet open. Check back often, as spots can open up any time due to cancellations.


  • I need to cancel or change my reservation. How do I do that?

    Please review the email that was sent you from notifications@calendly.com to cancel or change your reservation.


  • I did not receive a confirmation email for my reservation. What happened?

    If you successfully made a reservation, but did not receive an email, check your junk and other non-inbox folders. You can also search your email for notifications@calendly.com to locate your reservation confirmation.

    Please note: Reservations often fill quickly. In order to successfully make a reservation, you must enter your full name, click the schedule event button, and receive a confirmation email.


  • What if my minor is a member of SAG-AFTRA?

    Please bring your minor’s current SAG-AFTRA card/receipt issued by SAG-AFTRA with you to Talent Onboarding.


  • Can I bring my dog?

    Pets cannot be accommodated.


  • How long is Talent Onboarding?

    Talent Onboarding is approximately 20-30 minutes.


  • Where can I park?

    Ample parking is available in the area at your own expense. Also accessible by MARTA. Get off at the Peachtree Center stop next to the mall beneath our building.


  • Once my minor is registered, how do I find them work?

    Please visit our Kids Talent page for all relevant information.

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.
