Casting Director



The person in charge of drawing talent to auditions or selecting specific performers to be considered for a role. The casting director does not decide who will be selected for a role. Instead, he/she works with the producers and directors to find an array of potential performers, so that they can choose the best person possible.

(And if that doesn’t work, they might just cast the director’s nephew. – See “Nepotism.”)
