Work as a Background Actor in Los Angeles, New York, Georgia, and Louisiana

Do you split time between two coasts? Moving to a new state? Central Casting has offices in Los Angeles, New York, Georgia, and Louisiana, which means there are plenty of opportunities to find background work no matter where your local office is. If you’re moving or planning on switching offices, here’s what you need to know to work as a Background Actor in multiple locations.

Register with Central Casting

The first step to getting work is to register with Central Casting. If you share time between residences or are planning on working in multiple locations for any reason, which office you choose to register with is up to you. Keep in mind that our casting system will only assign you to one office at a time to ensure our Casting Directors have an accurate representation of Background Actors who are currently able to work in the location they are casting.

To register, you must first complete the online registration process by following these steps:

  1. First, create a profile to use during online registration.
  2. Once you’ve created a profile, you will be taken to the online portion of registration. To complete this step, fill out the necessary information.
  3. After filling out your employment information, you’ll need to make a reservation for a New Registration Onboarding session to finish paperwork and take a photo for our casting system. If you are unable to make a reservation, you can log back in on our Register page to try again.

    If you don’t see available sessions, keep checking back as reservations become available and spots open up due to cancelations. Check your location’s calendar to find out when reservations open for a specific date.

Required documentation

In order to register with Central Casting, you must fill out an I-9 form and present the required I-9 form documentation. We cannot register you if you do not bring these original and unexpired documents to your reserved session. Please review the Lists of Acceptable Documents before coming to our office.

Minors

Are you interested in registering your minor to work in movies, TV shows, and other productions? At this time, the online registration process is only for adults. To register a minor, you will need to bring your minor and their required documentation to a minors registration session at your local office.

How to work as a Background Actor in multiple offices

Now that you’re registered with Central Casting, how do you change your location? To work in a new location, you will need to attend a Re-Registration and Updates session. Some of our offices require reservations for Re-Registration and Updates, so be sure to check the Talent page of the new location before coming in.

Once you are registered in both offices, all you need to do to switch locations is call the office you want to work in and ask them to update that information in our casting system. In some cases, this can be done over the phone or you may be asked to come in to update paperwork.

Please note, you must have previously registered in person at a Central Casting office before you attend a Re-Registration and Updates session. If you have completed the online registration process, but have not attended the in-person registration at our office, you must make a reservation for a New Registration Onboarding session by logging in to online registration.
