Central Casting hits N.Y.

Burbank-based co. opening Gotham office

Central Casting is opening a Manhattan office and expanding its database of background actors into New York.

Company is working on several Gotham-based projects, providing background talent for film, TV, commercials and industrial filming throughout the region.

Heather Reichenbach and Christine Nelson, longtime casting directors in the Big Apple, have been hired as senior executives.  Daphne McWilliams, a veteran line producer, will run the day-to-day office operations and oversee marketing in New York.

Central Casting VP Jennifer Bender, who supervises the feature division from its headquarters in Burbank, will oversee the New York office.

A division of privately held Entertainment Partners, CC has in its 80-year history become part of the American vernacular, with “straight out of central casting” frequently used to describe unique characters.

To continue to diversify its database, CC will soon host a series of open casting calls in Gotham.
