Casting Discoveries: First Gigs and Big Breaks


A conversation about first gigs, big breaks, and casting outside of the box. Join the casting directors and actors of breakout hits The Bear and Reservation Dogs for an inside look into the collaborative process of shaping the perfect ensemble, from seeking out new and undiscovered talent, to striking the delicate balance between script, performer, and character — and why the performer you aren’t expecting might just be the perfect one for the role.
