Choreography & Casting

Below-the-Line Impact Report

Zach Woodlee
Choreographer

RECENT SCORES: Whether it’s working with mattresses, wheelchair-bound singers, or a crowded, multi-level shopping mall, Zach Woodlee produces and choreographs multiple dance numbers in every episode of the TV hit “Glee.” He’s staged numbers for musical episodes of other shows including “How I Met Your Mother,” and also developed the dance moves for the live “Glee” touring company.

NEXT UP: “Sometimes choreography isn’t a big set number,” said Woodlee of his work on the upcoming “Eat Prey Love,” starring Julia Roberts and Billy Crudup, “so the actors can stay focused on the acting.” Also coming up: Shawn Levy’s sci-fi feature “Real Steel,” and the third season of “Glee.”

Sarah Finn
Casting Director

RECENT SCORES: “Iron Man 2,” “Kick-Ass” and “Couples Retreat” are among the diverse films Finn has cast lately. Earlier she won the ’05 Artios (shared with Randi Hiller) for “Crash” and earned noms for “Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing & Charm School” and “Iron Man” (both shared with Hiller). Her latest projects include “Cowboys & Aliens,” “Thor,” “Tron: Legacy” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” The highlight on the latter: Working with Oliver Stone, who’s “committed to examining what’s happened to society since the first (film).”

COMING UP: Finn shares credits with Hiller on “Captain America: The First Avenger,” now shooting in London.
