Emmy Creative Arts: Casting Directors Pitch in to Sell Actors on Recreating Iconic Film Roles

3 June 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This TV season sees some familiar bigscreen titles on TV: “Bonnie & Clyde,” “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Trip to Bountiful.” That opened the door for new actors to step into famous roles — at least those brave enough to fill the shoes of the thesps that came before.

“We kept hearing from the agents that people were reluctant to take on something that was iconic,” says Margery Simkin, U.S. casting director for NBC’s two-part “Rosemary’s Baby.”

The move has some grumbling that the event will go from being a celebration for the intimate casting world to just another stop on the awards season party train. But Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America, said it’s a beneficial change for the industry because it shifts the awards from an outlier to the center spotlight. At its new date in January, he told Backstage, the Artios will be “a contributive element in the conversation that’s going on anyway.” The move was prompted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors creating a branch for casting directors. Hicks called the recognition last summer a “beautiful thing.” “It was a big deal in the casting world and an important recognition of the craft of casting, »

Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America, calls the accolades a "lovely surprise." "Csa is grateful to the casts of both »
