Schulman to 20th TV

Exec to head up talent, casting for studio

Marcia Shulman is expected to join 20th Century Fox TV as the head of talent and casting, calling into question the future of senior vice president of talent and casting Randy Stone.

Industry sources say Stone, an Academy Award-winning film producer, could exit his executive post and segue into a full-time producing position, but nothing has yet been resolved. The studio declined comment, and Stone could not be reached.

Stone won the Academy Award for best live-action short film in 1995 with “Trevor,” and he executive produced films such as the Jodie Foster starrer “Little Man Tate.”

Stone was originally hired at 20th Century Fox in 1993 by then-studio chief Peter Roth, and he has since cast such series as “The X-Files,” “Chicago Hope,” “Ally McBeal” and “The Practice.”

Shulman is a well-respected independent casting director who has cast such series as “Dawson’s Creek,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Felicity,” “Dilbert,” “House of Buggin’ ” and indie films like “Jeffrey.”

Sources say she was pursued for a position at Warner Bros. before deciding to join 20th, where her deal is not yet finalized. She chose 20th for the chance to work with writers such as David E. Kelly, Chris Carter and Steve Levitan, sources said. A deal is expected to be completed within the next two weeks.
