Once you complete the training, you will become eligible to be booked again. If you did not receive an email regarding the required training, please contact technical support at helpme@centralcasting.com. You can find more information on our Required Training page.

Update sizes in your online profile

Has it been a while since you updated your sizes? Have you not yet populated sizes in your online profile? Casting Directors often use these measurements when booking their shows. If you don’t have your sizes or have inaccurate measurements in your profile, you may be missing out on job opportunities. Learn more.

Central Casting’s new text message number – it’s shorter and always the same!

Text messages from Central Casting will be sent from a new number. It’s shorter – only 5 digits, and it’s always the same 5-digit number. You can be assured that all messages you receive from this number are from us here at Central Casting. We know some of our Background Actors had some difficulty receiving text messages, this new number will help ensure all messages are delivered.

To respond to availability inquiries, you still must click the provided link or log in to your online profile. And of course if you’re going to be late or need to cancel, you must call your Central Casting office. This new text number does not accept replies.

Direct Deposit for Background Actors

Central Casting is excited to announce a direct deposit payment option for Background Actors! If you’d like to be paid by direct deposit instead of paper checks, you can sign up through myEP once then will receive all payment via direct deposit for productions where Central Casting provides casting services and Entertainment Partners handles payroll.
