My conclusion at the time was “You can't get more notebook for your money” . This referred to the RRP of 599 euros and still applies, especially since street prices are now moving towards 500 euros. I have recommended the device to friends and family a good dozen times and have received consistently positive feedback so far.

Here are eight facts about the Casting Society of America, an esteemed (and exclusive) community of casting directors and associates. Actors working towards SAG-AFTRA or AEA status can relate; admission to the CSA is a major honor , and society members spend years earning the title.

After 25 years of running her own company, Robi Reed Entertainment, she joined the executive ranks at BET Networks, where in her position as Vice President of Talent and Casting for Original Programming, she oversees all scripted and non-scripted shows for the network, including the NAACP Image Award-winning mini-series The Bobby Brown Story and The New Edition Story, as well as Madiba starring Laurence Fishburne, The Book of Negroes, American Soul, The Game, First Wives Club, Games People Play and Bigger.

During a recent SAG-AFTRA webinar on Race & Storytelling, Reed described how in the early days of her career, after casting School Daze, she was then only asked to cast Black-themed shows. “And from that point on, I only got offered projects that had predominantly African-American casts. And I was like: ‘I’m a casting director. I know talent. Consider me for all things.’ And every studio, every network, they wanted to work with me, but when those ‘mainstream projects’ came along, they were never given to me. For a long time I fought that. And then, after a while, accepted the blessing that I had for being the casting director for African American projects.”

8 Actors Who Lied About Starring in Marvel and DC Roles, From Paul Rudd to Jason Momoa (Photos)

  8 Actors Who Lied About Starring in Marvel and DC Roles, From Paul Rudd to Jason Momoa (Photos) TheWrap takes a look at superhero movie actors who denied being in talks to star in either Marvel or DC Movies (although they really are). Non-disclosure agreements contractually prohibits actors from discussing their casting in Marvel or DC Movies, let alone confirming it with news outlets. Here are the 8 actors who we assume lied for contractual reasons about their roles in superhero movies. Paul Rudd When Paul Rudd was asked in 2013 if he was playing Ant-Man for Marvel Studios, Rudd very coyly said that it was "It's all rumor, man". He followed up by saying that he knew nothing about the role.

She cast the upcoming Billy Crystal movie Here Today, and recently completed the 15th season casting Yale Repertory Theater. Her company has worked with regional theaters all across the country, including La Jolla Playhouse, The Williamstown Theater Festival, Dallas Theater Center, Arena Stage, and The Westport Country Playhouse. Tara graduated with honors from Boston University and serves on the board of the Casting Society of America and the grants committee of the Noel Coward Foundation.

In a joint statement, CSA co-presidents Russell Boast and Rich Mento said that “For the first time in our history, a virtual awards show allows CSA the opportunity to celebrate our craft, along with our membership and their contributions across the globe, in one single event. And in a year that has presented a myriad of challenges, it is particularly rewarding to identify the people and organizations that are making a positive impact in our field and our industry. Our 2021 dual Hoyt Bowers recipients, Robi Reed and Tara Rubin, each an incredibly accomplished artist and casting professional – along with honoring the substantially supportive work of the Actors Fund – underscores our organization’s participation and commitments to our creative community.”

The Actors Fund, which has been one of the entertainment industry’s leading charitable originations since 1882, continued that tradition during the pandemic, distributing more than $17 million in emergency financial assistance to more than 14,000 people since March 18 to help cover their basic living expenses.

“This award is incredibly meaningful to all of us,” said Joe Benincasa, president and CEO of The Actors Fund. “Our staff has worked tirelessly over these past months to ensure no disruption in our emergency financial assistance, while at the same time strengthening and enhancing our essential health and wellness, life and career, and housing services. To receive the Rosalie Joseph Humanitarian Award from the Casting Society of America reflects the collaborative spirit of this community, and emphasizes that The Fund is here not only for those who work on stage and on camera, but also for the thousands in our industry who work behind the scenes: casting directors, crew members, designers, writers and many more. We are especially grateful to long-time western region leaders and past CSA presidents Pam Dixon and Gary Zuckerbrod for their commitment to the work of The Fund. We are proud to continue to provide stability and resiliency for our entertainment community, and a safety net to those in need in the coming months and beyond.”
