Casting Lots Quotes

I feel like a lot of directing is casting  (Casting Lots Quotes) I think it is really important that people at least have some potentially difficult discussions about what their expectations are - and not just financially - prior to getting married. It should really even happen prior to people living together or casting their lot together.  (Casting Lots Quotes) A lot of the stuff that’s happening now, I can trace back to ‘Death of a Salesman.’ Francine Maisler, the casting director, saw ‘Death of a Salesman’ and called me in for ‘Unbroken.’ The casting director of ‘Normal Heart’ had seen ‘Salesman’ too. I look back on it now, and it’s like one thing led to another; it was a chain reaction.  (Casting Lots Quotes) After ‘Entourage,’ it completely opened up my casting within the industry. People saw me for a lot of roles that I hadn’t been seen for before. Older roles. I went out this pilot season for a lot of lawyers and doctors. And cops - which I haven’t quite mastered yet; I find that quite difficult.  (Casting Lots Quotes) You read a script, you try and think through what is the best, most wide-ranging way of telling the story: who stylistically, character-logically, psychologically fits inside the world of what you’re trying to do. A lot of it, when you’re casting, is trying to get yourself in the head of a director.  (Casting Lots Quotes) In the studio, I don’t do a lot of work that requires repetitive activity. I spend a lot of time looking and thinking and then try to find the most efficient way to get what I want, whether it’s making a drawing or a sculpture, or casting plaster or whatever.  (Casting Lots Quotes) I don’t plan, because everything goes against my plans anyways. There’s absolutely no point in planning anything. I’m just enjoying the moment. I’m meeting with a whole lot of people - casting directors, directors, agents. I have things going on everywhere, but I have no solid plans.  (Casting Lots Quotes) There’s editing, and scripts to read and edit, and casting, and all the elements of production that just sort of take up the normal downtime that you would have as an actor. So there’s not a lot of that for me.  (Casting Lots Quotes) You think when you start getting jobs that it’ll get easier, but that’s the biggest lie ever. It gets harder. You have to put in more work. I wish it were the casting couch days because it’d be a lot easier!  (Casting Lots Quotes) Earlier in my career, I needed to be the writer, casting director, set designer, leading man, and producer. I’ve been eliminating a lot of those jobs. I’m an executive producer right now. I still get to pick the best screenplays.  (Casting Lots Quotes) I was the first person in the world to audition for ‘The Hobbit’. The casting director told me that when I went in. That’s a lot of pressure, isn’t it? The first person in the world.  (Casting Lots Quotes) I just think there are a lot of celebrities who don’t feel that they have a voice. A lot of actors come from a place of fear, and that’s just a general statement about actors. You’re terrified the casting director won’t like you, you’re terrified the producer won’t like you, you’re terrified the director won’t like you, and on and on.  (Casting Lots Quotes) But, Tarantino has seen all of my movies. He’s seen my good stuff, he’s seen my bad stuff, he’s seen the ones I directed, he’s read my autobiography. There’s an awful lot of things he knows about me, all of which I think had something to do with his casting  (Casting Lots Quotes) A lot of things that I can’t get into the room for, even just to be seen, is because they’re just saying ‘No. they’re not casting non-white.’ You’re lumped into a category with people who are just not white  (Casting Lots Quotes) Casting is a long process for me. I take a lot of time  (Casting Lots Quotes) I've always thought that as long as directors and casting directors don't see me as just Harry Potter, I'll be OK. People have shown a lot of faith in me, and I owe them a huge debt. They're letting me prove that I'm serious about this  (Casting Lots Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
