I am assisting some friends of mine cast a low budget SAG shoot and I really enjoy it. I have been a talent agent and have done casting before and there are times I enjoy it just as much as acting itself. Eventually, I think I will want to produce my own movies. It is a fun process. It can be frustrating to, but if you have the right people it is a blast to create stories.
It is true what they say-many times casting comes down to types. If the character is a specific type you can be the best actor in the world and just not be right for the role. As an actor myself I can understand wanting to break out of a certain stereotype though. There are limits though, because if you are a 75 year old male you cannot play a 30 year old female.
