If you previously registered with Central Casting before the launch of our online self-service platform, a profile has already been created for you. To access your information, please claim your profile using the email address you have on file with Central Casting.

Required Training

All those registered with Central Casting New York must take required anti-harassment training annually in order to remain active and eligible to be booked.

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 booked to work when you accept an offer for work and receive details.

FAQs

  • What do I do if I’m going to be late or need to cancel my booking?

    Call 646.205.8244 ext. 4. If you cancel, we ask that you give us enough notice to replace you. Note: You cannot cancel via text message. You must call our office.


  • Is there a guarantee of work?

    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., 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, often in the form of a Details Blog. You will use the show name and 4-digit passcode given to you to access your booking information.


  • Where can I find the dates I’ve been booked for?

    In the “My Schedule” page of your online profile, you can easily track messages and responses from our Casting Directors to avoid confusion or potential double bookings.


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

    Please check your voicemail before calling Central Casting. If the Casting Director did not leave a message, wait to see if you hear back. If you do not receive a call back, assume you are no longer needed.


  • What is a rush call?

    Rush calls are for immediate same-day work. When you respond to a rush call, you may be required to get to set as soon as possible.


  • Where can I view the New York Anti-Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Policy?

    You can view the New York Anti-Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Policy here and the Sexual Harassment Complaint Form here.


  • 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.

Being booked on mandatory vaccination productions.(click image for more information)

  • 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.


  • Where can I find my responses to messages I’ve received?

    In the “My Schedule” page of your online profile, you can easily track messages and responses from our Casting Directors to avoid confusion or potential double bookings.

    Screenshot of the My Schedule section of the Casting Platform.(click image for more information)


  • 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 646.205.8244.


  • 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 646.205.8244.


  • 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.

  • How long does it take to receive my check after it has been mailed?

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

    Yes. We payroll many people with the same or 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 not be processed or delayed if we are unable to identify who worked.


  • How do I contact the payroll department?
