If you’re in the L.A. area and you haven’t seen the great documentary Casting By yet, you really should get to the Arena Cinema in Hollywood.

The film will run at this weekend there and every screening will have some big time casting directors in attendance.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the film: Casting By is a celebration of the profession, highlighting its previously unsung role in film history while also serving as an elegy to the lost era of the New Hollywood. The documentary focuses on pioneer Marion Dougherty, an iconoclast whose exquisite taste, tenacity and gut instincts brought a new kind of actor to the screen that would mark the end of the old studio system and help to usher in this revolutionary new period.  A Who’s Who of Hollywood legends is featured in the film including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, Glenn Close, Robert Duvall, Jeff Bridges, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Lane, Jon Voight, Danny Glover, Bette Midler, John Travolta and countless others. 

Combining over 240 interviews, extensive archival footage, animated stills & documents with a moving original score, Director Tom Donahue has meticulously crafted the untold tale of the Hollywood casting director.

    I’ll tell you why I don’t go to these things. You should never, ever pay to be cast. The CDs are already paid by Production. You are paid to work. You do NOT pay to work.
