Casting By

The job of casting director is detailed in this well-made documentary. Featuring interviews with nearly every actor and director in Hollywood, Casting By sheds light on a little known but essential part of film-making. Marion Daugherty is one of the legendary casting directors who are applauded by Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, and honestly, it would be easier to list the A-list talent NOT interviewed for this film. Playing to a packed house at the Cleveland International Film Festival, it was quite thrilling to listen to the audience gasp at some of the early scenes from now-legendary actors.
