SAG launches casting site

Guild puts actors on the Web

The Screen Actors Guild will launch iActor, a free online casting directory for members, this spring.

SAG members who are dues-current will be able to upload headshots, resumes, video clips and audio clips to create individual profiles searchable by casting professionals.

“I am very proud that members and staff have made this goal a reality,” SAG president Alan Rosenberg said in a statement.

Steven Graham, the guild’s director of online casting, said the database will be the only one comprised exclusively of SAG members. “It incorporates our skills and talents database, which is searchable by gender, physical characteristics, skills, talents, credits, etc.”

A SAG rep said no specific date has been set for the launch, but members are being asked to go online and upload their resumes, headshots and reels to help get the site ready for casting directors.

“As Screen Actors Guild members and actors, we need every advantage we can get,” said Robert David Hall (“CSI”), chairman of the iActor Task Force. The directory “will become as strong as we make it, so member participation is crucial.”
