Important COVID-19 Return to Work Agreement information for Background Actors

  • Don’t miss out on getting booked! As many productions move towards mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations (subject to disability or religious exception), there are some updates to the casting process on these productions you should know, including how to help us let productions know that you are able to comply with their vaccination policy. Learn More.

Introducing SmartVoucher

  • Central Casting is excited to announce SmartVoucher, our new digital voucher platform. In order to use SmartVoucher, you will need to claim your online profile if you haven’t already. You can find more information on SmartVoucher on the Talent page. Learn more.

What does the COVID-19 Return to Work Agreement mean for Background Actors?

  • As some productions move towards mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations, Central Casting BG can now voluntarily notate in your profile if you are fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine or have a disability or sincerely held religious belief that prevents vaccination.

    Providing this information is voluntary and will only be used for productions mandating vaccinations as per the Return To Work agreement. Once notated in your profile, please do not provide any additional information regarding this item to Central Casting. If additional information is required, Production (not Central Casting) will ask you for it.

    To update, log in to your online profile and go to the “Key Information” section of your profile and scroll to the “COVID-19 vaccination” field. For more information, click here.

While at the test facility and on set, Production requires that a face mask that covers your nose and mouth be worn. All possible work dates are contingent upon clearing these tests.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being Booked

Casting Directors use multiple tools to book Background Actors, including seeking submissions on our Jobs page and sending availability messages through our messaging platform.

You are officially booked when you accept an offer for work and receive your details. Make sure you write all your booking information down so you’re prepared when you get on set.

FAQs

  • I’m going to be late or need to cancel. What do I do?

    Call 404.920.8011. When cancelling, please give us enough notice to replace you.


  • Is there a guarantee of work?

    No, there is no guarantee of work because the needs of our production clients change every day. Due to the nature of background acting, Central Casting can never offer full-time employment to any of the talent (i.e., you) it employs.


  • What does “checking your availability” mean?

    “Checking your availability” means that a Casting Director is preparing the look for a show for a future date and is checking if you are available to work that day. When Central Casting checks your availability, we are not offering or guaranteeing work, we are only asking if you can work without time restrictions on a specific date or date range. “Without time restrictions” means that there are no possible conflicts that would prevent you from working that day. When preparing for and booking their shows, Casting Directors may not know call times until they get additional information from production and those call times often change through the night and early morning. That’s why you need to have all day availability when responding as avail to these messages.


  • What does “first avail” mean?

    “First avail” means that you have confirmed your availability, but the Casting Director cannot book you right away. You are not booked unless you accept an offer for work and receive details. So when you are on first avail, you are not officially booked and are still able to look for other work. If you are offered another job or put on first avail for another job, please call the initial Casting Director you are on first avail for before accepting the offer; your first avail show may choose to hire you first. Also, if your availability changes while on first avail, please call our office as soon as possible to let us know you are no longer available to work.


  • How do I get my details?

    The Casting Director will give you your booking information, which usually comes in the form of a Details Blog. You will enter a show name (which may be different than the name of the project) and a 4-digit passcode given to you by the Casting Director. Access your booking information by going to the My Details page.


  • What happens if I miss a call from Central Casting?

    Please do not call back until you have checked your voicemail to ensure the Casting Director did not leave specific instructions. If you do not get a call back, assume you are no longer needed.


  • What is a rush call?

    Rush calls are for immediate same-day work, usually to replace a “no show” on set. If you’re booked as a rush call, you may need to get to set as soon as possible. Please read rush call job posts carefully before submitting to ensure you fit the requirements.


  • Why have I not been contacted for work in a while?

    Our Casting Directors book Background Actors based on the needs of production. Be sure to fill out your profile thoroughly and accurately so Casting Directors know the types of roles you can portray. You can also check our Jobs page for work opportunities.


  • What can I do to help myself get booked?

    Through our online self-service platform, you can now edit your online profile and receive job inquiries from Casting Directors. Here are some tips to ensure you’re putting yourself in the best position to be booked.

    1. To get booked by Central Casting, you must first claim your online profile. To claim, select the log in button in our website menu, then choose the claim profile option. Once claimed, you will be able to log in and get jobs through our online self-service platform.
    2. Casting Directors use the information in your profile, like hair color, eye color, sizes, vehicles you own, etc., when booking their shows. By filling out your profile completely and accurately, you will show up in more searches for roles you fit.
    3. Upload photos of yourself in different looks and wardrobe, your vehicles, and pets you are willing to work with. Casting Directors use your photos to make sure your look fits the role.
    4. Manage your availability calendar. Keeping your availability up to date lets Casting Directors know when to contact you for work and helps ensure you don’t become double booked.
    5. Reply to emails and texts promptly. You will receive availability messages, job inquiries, and other communications from Central Casting via email. Be sure to enable alerts so you never miss a job opportunity. Also, add DoNot-Reply@centralcasting.com to your safe sender list, so emails don’t get lost in junk or other folders. Casting Directors may also reach out via text message and you can also view all communications in the messages folder of your online profile.

Messaging

When a Casting Director contacts you for work, you will often receive an alert in your profile and an email through our online self-service platform. We recommend setting up email alerts so you never miss a message from Central Casting. To learn how to set up email alerts on your device, read these instructions.

To learn more about check avail, first avail, and other booking terminology, see our article First Avail: Everything You Need to Know.

  • How do I submit for work?

    Casting Directors will contact you directly when you fit the look or requirements for a role. Be sure to completely fill out your online profile and add additional photos in different looks so Casting Directors can consider you for a variety of roles.


  • How do I know the message came from Central Casting?

    Emails will always come from DoNot-Reply@centralcasting.com and include a link to reply to the message via your online profile. SMS text messages can come from a variety of numbers, but will always include a link to reply via our online self-service platform. These inquiries will also appear in your online profile.

    Emails from Central Casting will include your name, a message from the casting director, and a link to our online self-service platform.

  • What happens after I respond to a message?

    Our Casting Directors will review their responses then reach out if they intend to book you. If you are not selected, you may not hear from anyone. Remember, you’re booked when you accept an offer for work and receive details.


  • What does the phrase “without time restrictions” mean?

    When booking, Casting Directors may not know the call time (which can often change before the shoot), so they need you to have completely open availability on the date in question. For example, if you cannot work between 3-4pm, you are not available without time restrictions.


  • I didn’t see the message until later. Can I still respond?

    Yes, always respond as soon as you can. Some messages will expire after a certain amount of time. When this happens, you will see a notification that submissions are closed. We recommend enabling alerts for Central Casting through your email provider so you can always respond to job inquiries on time.


  • Can I respond to multiple avail messages?

    Yes, you are responsible for letting Central Casting know when you are available to work. Once you are booked, you are also responsible for not becoming double booked. If you are on first avail, please let that Casting Director know before accepting another offer.


  • How do I know you received my response?

    After you respond to a message, you will be sent a notification detailing your response and confirmation we received it.


  • Why am I unable to reply to an availability message?

    Casting Directors may only accept responses for a certain period of time and your message may have expired. If the message has expired and we’re no longer accepting submissions for the role for which you were contacted, you will see a page that explains this when you try to respond.


  • What if I don’t hear back from a Casting Director?

    If you don’t hear back with an offer for work and details, you are not booked. However, given the volume of roles they are booking, please be patient as it may take them some time to respond.


  • What are my booking details?

    Once you have accepted an offer for work, the Casting Director will let you know how to access your details, which will likely be in the form of a Details Blog. To access your details, enter the show name and passcode given to you in the My Details section of our website. Casting Directors get booking information as it comes in from production, so you likely will not receive your details until the evening before the shoot.


  • Do I still have to call the Call Time Change Box for my call time changes?

    Yes, your call time changes will be updated on the Call Time Change Box. You can find your Call Time Change Box information in your Details Blog.


  • If I receive a message, does that mean I’m officially booked?

    You are not booked unless you accept an offer for work and receive details.


  • What if I respond to a message then never hear back from the Casting Director?

    Thank you for replying. Your response lets the Casting Director know you are interested and available to work, but does not guarantee you will be booked. Depending on the casting volume, you may not hear back.


  • Can I reply directly to a text message?

    No, our texting numbers are only formatted to send outbound text messages from our online self-service platform. When you respond to a text message directly, you will get a message indicating that you can only reply “Stop” to end text communication. We do not accept “yes,” “no,” or any other response through text message.


  • Can I call the number I received the text message from?

    No, our texting numbers are only formatted to send outbound text messages from our online self-service platform. Please call our main line at 404.920.8011.


  • Why was there a link in my message?

    While you may receive an email or text message, all communication with Casting Directors happens through our online self-service platform. Each communication will include a link to your online profile where you can reply to the message.


  • Can I get messages in a language other than English?

    No, the messages are only in English.


  • I’m not getting text messages. Does T-Mobile’s business message “opt-out” feature prevent me from receiving text messages from Central Casting?

    Yes. T-Mobile has released a feature that allows their customers to “opt-out” of business messages. In order to receive text messages from Central Casting, T-Mobile users will need to contact T-Mobile support at 1.800.866.2453 and ask for this feature to be turned off. Once the opt-out is removed, you will be able to receive messages from Central Casting. Even if you are a T-Mobile customer who has received text messages from Central Casting in the past, please check with T-Mobile to ensure you do not have the opt-out feature enabled.


  • Can I change my response?

    If your availability has changed after responding to a message, please call our office at 404.920.8011.


  • I’m not registered with Central Casting. Why am I getting these messages?

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Most likely your phone number was previously owned by someone signed up with us or provided to us in error.


  • Can I opt out of SMS messaging?

    As an employee of Central Casting you provided your mobile number to us so that we can contact you about jobs for which you would be a potential match. However, if you no longer want us to reach out to you via text message, please reply “STOP” to the text message you received.


  • How do I set up email alerts on an iPhone?

    Adding Central Casting as a VIP sender ensures you don’t miss out on job inquiries and other communications. If you have an iPhone, follow these steps. If you have another device, please check your email app settings.

    1. Open an email from Central Casting
    2. Tap on Central Casting in the “from” field at the top of the page
    3. Select “add to VIP” below Central Casting’s contact information

FAQs

  • How soon after I work can I expect my paycheck?

  • Can I pick up my paycheck?

    No. At this time, we do not have the resources for paychecks to be picked up. Paychecks are handled in a secure area with 24-hour surveillance and delivered by our bonded driver to the post office.


  • How long does it take for me to receive my paycheck?

    You will receive most checks within 2-3 business days after they are sent first class mail, but there are times when it could take longer through the federal mail system, particularly during holidays.


  • Why do I sometimes receive my paychecks out of work date order?

    Checks are not mailed out in order of work date. Before we can cut a check, the production reviews and completes the voucher, and production companies vary on how often they process and send in the vouchers.


  • What do I do if I think a check is missing?

    To inquire about a missing check, please contact payroll at 800.562.2718. Be sure to have the name of the project you worked on, the date you worked, and your voucher information. You can also check your pay history on myEP.

    To request a stop payment, fill out and follow the instructions on our Stop Pay/Reissue Form. A stop payment can be placed no sooner than one calendar week after the check has been mailed.


  • Do I need to write my Social Security number on my voucher each time I work?

    We payroll many people with similar names. You will need to put your Social Security number (at least the last 4 digits) on each voucher so we can correctly identify who we should pay. Your voucher will either be delayed or not processed if we are unable to identify who worked.


  • What is the best way to contact the payroll department?
