Production is back across the country and there are plenty of opportunities for you to get back on set. Central Casting is currently booking many background, Stand-In, and double roles for popular TV shows and exciting upcoming projects. If you are registered and interested in working, find out how to get cast on some of your favorite shows.

Must be registered with Central Casting

To be eligible to be booked, you must have completed the in-person portion of registration. New Registration Onboarding remains suspended across our offices, but if you’re interested in registering yourself or your minor for the first time, keep an eye on the notices section for updates.

Set safety

Central Casting and our productions are committed to ensuring the health and safety of everyone on set by following industry-wide protocols. Part of these procedures include COVID-19 testing prior to work dates and possible additional testing throughout your booking. To be considered for a role, you must be available without time restrictions on both the testing date(s) and work date(s), which will be listed in the job post or message you receive from a Casting Director.

Other safety measures you may encounter are productions deciding to carry background, zone systems on set, virtual fittings, and less interaction with crew members (like hair, makeup, and wardrobe). Many of our latest articles discuss these changes and offer ways for you to be successful on set.

Minors permits

There are also opportunities for your minor to get cast on TV shows and in movies. If you’re interested in finding work for your child, don’t forget to update their entertainment work permits so they remain eligible to be booked.

In California and New York, state law requires that the employer receive a copy of the updated permit, which you can email to:

Respond to messages and check the Jobs page

If a Casting Director sends you a message, please respond as quickly as possible, even if the answer is no. This lets the casting team know you are not available or interested and that they can find other people who fit the look. Also, even if you don’t see the message until later, please still respond as there may be spots available.

When booking background, Casting Directors will also post to our Jobs page. If you want to get cast on TV shows, this page is a great tool to find and submit for roles you fit. Please read the job posts carefully, include the photos or materials the Casting Director has asked for, and only submit when you fit the requirements for the role.
