Four-time Emmy Award-winning Casting Director, John Frank Levey, is here to talk about his brand-new book, “Right for the Role”. He takes us through the casting process behind some of his iconic TV shows — including Shameless, Animal Kingdom, ER, China Beach, and The West Wing. There’s been many changes to casting since he first started, and he takes us through what casting was like back when he started vs. now, what an actor’s branding truly is, and how drastically Zoom changed auditions. Levey also opens up about why community is so important to him, and how the world of casting has changed after the pandemic.
