Come in

Bring your minor and required documentation to the next registration session at our New Orleans office. There you’ll complete paperwork, an orientation and your minor will take a photo for our database.

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 Per the Department of Homeland Security, a list C document alone is no longer valid.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).

That’s it. Now your minor is able to submit for jobs.

1450 Poydras Street, Suite 1420
New Orleans, LA 70112

Adults and minors: Monday-Thursday 10am or 2pm

Minors only: Monday-Thursday 4-5pm

* Check our Calendar for closures and cancellations

Registration is for new SAG-AFTRA and non-union minors.

Registration FAQs

A Background Actor or extra is someone who performs in a show in a nonspeaking role, usually in the background. Central Casting registers Background Actors to appear in our legendary database. Every day, our in-house Casting Directors use that database to cast thousands of Background Actors to work on set, often for the following day.
Those without required documentation (unexpired originals only, no photocopies) to accompany the I-9 form will be turned away.

Must bring identification showing date of birth for the Age Verification form.
All minors ages 17 and under must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. Homeland Security permits only the parent or legal guardian to fill out the I-9 form.
Your minor does not need a work permit to register with Central Casting, but in order to be considered for work, each minor will need an employment certificate issued by the state of Louisiana on file with Central Casting.
Please bring your minor’s current SAG-AFTRA card/receipt issued by SAG-AFTRA with you to registration.
Pets cannot be accommodated.
Registration is approximately one hour.
Street and lot parking is available in the area at your own expense. The easiest parking is in the Superdome visitors lot adjacent to Benson Towers. We do not provide validation for any garages in the area.

Registration with Central Casting is a privilege, not a right. We respectfully reserve the right to refuse registration to anyone.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being Booked

Once you receive your minor's work details, they're officially booked.

It's important to write down your minor's work information so you're prepared when you head to set.

FAQs

Call 504.684.2550. If you cancel, we ask that you give us enough notice to replace your minor. PLEASE NOTE: You may not cancel via text message. You must call our office.
No, there is no guarantee of work because the needs of productions change every day. Due to the nature of background work, Central Casting can never offer full-time employment to any of the talent (i.e., your minor) it employs.
This means casting is prepping a scene for a future date and is checking your minor's availability. If you do confirm availability, please mark your calendar to limit conflicts. Your minor becomes "first avail" (first available) for that show. Typically in these situations, casting will not be able to hire your minor until the show looks at their picture submission and approves the look. After that, they will usually not release any booking until late afternoon the day before the shoot.

If your minor is offered another booking on the same day, we ask for you to give us the courtesy of the "first right of refusal." Just let us know so we can inform our show. They may option to offer to hire your minor first. Your minor is still able to be hired elsewhere if we are unable to confirm a booking for them.
The Casting Director will give you your minor's booking information. Be sure to write this information down. Certain shows or Casting Directors may provide additional information via email or a wardrobe blog. Please review all provided information to ensure your minor is ready for work when you arrive to set.
Always check your voicemail. Do not call back until you have checked your voicemail to ensure the Casting Director did not leave specific instructions. If no message was left, wait and see if you receive a call back. If you do not receive a call back, assume your minor is no longer needed.
Rush calls are for immediate same-day work. This is usually to replace a "no show." When you respond to a rush call, you may be required to get to the set location within an hour or less after being booked.
 

SMS Texting

Casting Directors may choose to reach out to you via SMS messaging. In addition to checking availability, Casting Directors will now be able to send follow up messages, and in some cases, details through text message.
All messages from Central Casting will be personalized with your minor's name (as it appears in our system), reference the project name, and all replies will appear in the same thread.
Central Casting is now using SMS text messages to check availability, ask questions related to the call or booking and/or provide preliminary details. The message format may look like this:

Example SMS message
Our Casting Directors will review the responses and then reach out to any Background Actor selected to be booked. If you are not selected, you may not hear from anyone. As always, you know you are booked when you receive your details.
When a Casting Director asks if you are available without time restrictions, they want to know if you are available to work the whole day, even if the location or time were to change. For example, if you know you are not available between 1-2pm, you would answer: No.
Yes, you are responsible for finding work and letting Central Casting know when your minor is available to work. Casting Directors work independently to meet the needs of their productions, so once your minor is booked, you are also responsible for them not becoming double booked.
Yes, please respond to each request you receive. If a Casting Director books your minor for a specific role, it is your responsibility to decline any other offers to ensure they're not double booked for the same day.
When we receive your message, we send you a quick confirmation text message, like the following:
  • "(Your Name), Your "YES" response has been received. Thank you. Remember, you are not booked unless you receive your details."
  • "(Your Name), Your "NO" response has been received. Thank you."
  • "(Your Name), Please respond only Yes or No."
  • "(Your Name), Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting submissions for this role."
If you didn't receive a confirmation response, please send your response again. Please note: the system is engineered to only accept a YES or NO response.
If you don't hear back from a Casting Director with booking 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.
Yes, simply reply to the original message with either a Yes or No response. If you receive multiple messages in the course of a conversation with a Casting Director, you will only be able to change your response to the most recent message. Please note: after you have received your details and are booked, you must follow the appropriate procedure if you need to cancel. You cannot cancel via text message.
Role details may or may not be communicated via SMS text message depending on the production. If your minor is booked, you will be notified where you should go to learn their full booking, wardrobe, and location instructions. These instructions might include an info tape, email, and/or wardrobe blog.
Yes. Though your minor's details may be provided to you via SMS text message, their full booking, wardrobe, and location instructions may still be available as part of an info tape, wardrobe blog, or email from the Casting Director. Please review all materials to ensure that you understand what will be expected of you when you arrive to set.
Your minor is not booked unless you accept an offer for work and receive details.
Thank you for your response. Sending a "Yes" response tells the Casting Directors that you are interested and available to work, but does not guarantee that you will be booked. Depending on the casting volume, you may not hear back.
Please send your response again.
Central Casting will use a variety of numbers to reach you. Once you receive a message from a Casting Director about a specific project, all follow up questions and replies will appear in the same thread.
Unfortunately, our texting numbers are only formatted to send outbound text messages and receive a Yes or No response.
In order for our system to read your response and provide it to the Casting Directors, we need to limit the text to only Yes or No.
Casting Directors sometimes don't receive call times until the last minute, so we are asking you if you are available for the full day. If you are only available for part of the day, please reply No.
Some Casting Directors and productions may provide additional instructions with a wardrobe blog or similar resource. Please review any materials provided to ensure that you will be ready for work.
If for whatever reason a URL isn't working, write down the URL and attempt to enter it directly into a web browser.
Not all carriers and phone service providers handle SMS messages in the same way. Some carriers, like Sprint for example, may split long messages. Unfortunately, when this happens, there is no guarantee the split message will arrive in a predictable order.
No, the messages are only in English.
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.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. Most likely your mobile number was previously owned by someone registered with us, or provided to us inadvertently.
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 call Central Casting and request that your number no longer be used for text messaging.

On Set

Once your minor has booked a job, they are ready to get on set!

A guardian must always accompany a minor on set. It's important to show up on time and camera ready. When you and your minor arrive, check in with your contact and get your minor's voucher.

Your time on set will vary, but a typical day lasts up to 12 hours. Your minor is an important part of the production, please ensure they are professional and have a good attitude on set.

Be sure to read our article What to Do When Your Minor Books a Job for everything you need to know about being on set.

FAQs

It is critical that you write down all work information. If you lose your information or if you have any questions regarding work information call 504.684.2550.

Another guardian (21+) who is not working on the show must accompany the minor.
Do not bring anyone to set who is not working, including other children.
When your minor gets booked for a job, ask the Casting Director how to get call time changes. It is your responsibility to get call time changes for each booking.
Roles change from set to set, but often a Background Actor's main contact is the 2nd Assistant Director (2nd AD) and Production Assistants (PAs).
When your minor is not required on set, you both will be taken to a holding area. You can bring items to the holding area to keep busy while your minor is not working.
During designated meal breaks, craft services will provide food. Please eat breakfast before you arrive. Guardians, please allow all minors to get their meals before you get yours. Do not ask craft services for food outside of your designated meal times. If your child has special dietary needs, please bring food to set with you. It is not production's responsibilty to supply specialty food. You are allowed to bring snacks to eat throughout the day.
If you are injured on set, you must report it to the Assistant Director and/or medic immediately.

Payroll

Central Casting handles both casting and payroll services. When your minor registers with Central Casting, we become their employer and, in most cases, are responsible for paying them.

FAQs

Checks are due to be mailed on the Thursday after the week your minor worked. They may be mailed out earlier depending on when the production company turns in the complete and accurate vouchers.
No. At this time, we do not have the resources for checks to be picked up. Paychecks are handled in a security area with 24-hour surveillance and delivered by our bonded driver to the post office directly. Paymasters do not have access to your paychecks.
The checks are sent first class mail. While you will receive most checks within 2-3 business days after they are mailed, there are times when it could take longer through the federal mail system, particularly during holiday periods.
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.
Yes, there are many people we payroll with the same or similar names. You will need to put your minor's Social Security number on each voucher so we can correctly identify who we should pay. Your minor's voucher will either be delayed or not processed if we are unable to identify who worked.
For payroll inquiries, please call 800.562.2718. Representatives are available Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.
You may change it on your minor's voucher when they work or you can fax us a change of address in writing with the following information: your minor's name, Social Security number, new address, signature and date of request. You must update your minor's address with both payroll and casting, as we store information separately.
You can either fax or mail us your stop payment request. You will need to specify in writing that you are requesting a stop payment and include your name, Social Security number, address and signature, along with the work date and show name for the check you are missing. If the net of the check is over $150, you will need to sign a bank form supplied by our department and have your signature notarized before we can place a stop payment.
Five business days for current year checks, longer if the check was cut in a prior year. We are unable to reissue a check that has been stop paid until after we have received confirmation from the bank that the stop payment was successful.
Call 818.955.6313 or send your request in writing to our payroll department either by fax or through the mail. Be sure to include your minor's name, Social Security number, address, and the year(s) they worked. You will also need to state whether the request is for your own personal records or to enable your minor to join SAG-AFTRA. SAG-AFTRA will only accept faxes sent directly from our payroll department certified by our manager.
For employment verification, call 818.955.6313. This is an Entertainment Partners line; they will be able to provide employment verification.
