I enjoyed this book very much. I find myself evaluating the casting in every movie and tv series, now that I know what to look for. I had seen every movie they cast, and their "behind the scenes" descriptions of what really goes into casting and filming a movie was interesting. If you love movies you'll love this!

I had never really put that much thought into what goes into casting a movie. I guess that I just assumed people like Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were discovered (magically, of course) and catapaulted into stardom. Apparently, that is not how it happens. This book was really enjoyable and gave me an inside look into something that I assumed was magic. The thought that these two women put into the smallest roles is amazing. I almost want to quit my job and go work them....

I thought this was a fascinating look at how actors and actresses are cast in movies. The focus was on the casting of "A Beautiful Mind" but Jane and Janet also went through the different types of actors such as Unknowns, Stars, child actors. I never realized how much there is going on to get that movie into the movie theaters.
