Kids Talent Onboarding/Registration

Does your child want to get on set on movies and TV shows? Register them to work as a Background Actor with Central Casting.

We are closed for Minor’s Talent Onboarding and Updates and all other events due to COVID-19. Our notices have the most up-to-date information, please check them for updates.


Required Documentation

The Department of Homeland Security has issued an updated form I-9 that went into effect on January 22, 2017. This version requires minors (individuals 17 or under) to meet the same requirements as adults regarding the documents they can present for form I-9. Per the Department of Homeland Security, a list C document alone is no longer valid. Adults and minors are both 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 E-Verify employer (Central Casting), the employer can only see List B documents that include a photo. Per Federal Law, Central Casting is not permitted to register anyone, minor or adult, who does not have the required documentation.

The non-photo ID options in List B do not apply to minors pursuing employment with E-Verify companies (Central Casting).

Certification Number

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.


  • 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?

  • Where can I park?

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.
