Kids Talent Onboarding/Registration
Central Casting registers babies from 15 days old to teenagers 17 years old to work on movies, TV shows, and other productions.
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.
While your minor does not need a work permit to sign up with Central Casting, they will need a child performer permit from the State of New York to be considered for jobs.
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 Per the Department of Homeland Security, a list C document alone is no longer valid.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).
