How to Get Cast in a Tyler Perry TV Show or Movie Learn how to get cast in a Tyler Perry’s Tyler Perry Studios production Tyler Perry, the creator, and CEO of Tyler Perry Studios has dominated the film business for more than 15 years. As an actor, writer, director, and producer, he manages the biggest movie production company in Georgia and works on several films and series at once. Tyler Perry Studios (TPS) has been a significant economic force in the state, creating jobs and spending millions on the production. Perry is often praised for his work ethic and unique ability to tell stories that resonate with a large audience. Naturally, Mr. Murdoch has spent a lot of time mining for talent to participate in his numerous projects on his wide spectrum. What distinguishes Perry's films from the competition is that many of the actors who are cast in these parts are usually unknown or have struggled to obtain significant work: “There’ve been many times that people will come in and audition and they weren’t the best talents but they had a hunger and a zeal,” Perry says. “That hunger is enough to catapult them to greatness in what they’re doing. And I’m always looking for the underdog.” If you're interested in working for Tyler Perry, this in-depth guide explains how the TPS casting process works, how to audition, and advice from the man himself, as well as his casting director and actors. What is the Tyler Perry Studios' casting procedure? Casting Perry is known for his insistence on finding individuals who have something to prove, have struggled to find work, or haven't yet been given a chance. Tyler Perry Studios has long been extremely encouraging, straightforward, and approachable when it comes to people seeking a chance. The studio's official Facebook page recently shared a helpful handbook for those wanting to audition for any Tyler Perry production. To be considered for a role in a Tyler Perry film, there are a few simple things you can do: -Register with Central Casting Georgia. This is the only official agency that Perry uses for casting. Be sure to create an online profile and select "Film & Television Projects" from the list of options. - Attend one of the many open calls that are announced on the Central Casting website and in local publications such as GA casting calls. These open calls are for a wide variety of projects, including background roles, principal roles, and extras. -If you're selected to audition for a role, prepare well and give it your best shot! Many successful actors have landed their first big break by auditioning for a Tyler Perry production. Tyler Perry Studios gets the word out about casting calls for leads, minor parts, background actors/extras, dancers, musicians, and stand-ins/photo doubles using a few casting agencies, mostly Southern Casting Associates, which you can find on Project Casting. Despite being very hands-on and having the final word, Perry has enough assistance managing talent searches. Since its founding in 2006, Tyler Perry Studios has helped many aspiring actors and actresses get their start in the entertainment industry. Among its successful alumni are Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, Lance Gross, and Keshia Knight Pulliam. To cast her films, Tyler researched the market and found that many producers were looking for a specific type of person. She started by reading each script thoroughly to figure out who she needed for it to work, then pored through notebooks full of headshots and resumes. She also sought actors from the local community, professional, and even church groups. Tyler also realized that some of the people she needed were not actors at all, but everyday citizens with interesting stories. When it comes to pulling off a production, Tyler is known for being very hands-on. She is involved in every aspect of her movies, from the writing and casting to the directing and editing. This level of involvement allows her to create the specific vision she has for each project. Sometimes she'd have to wade through more than 1,000 applications for a production that just required 20 actors, eventually narrowing down the list to about 200 for an in-person audition. In 2016, the Tyler Perry Studio team held open auditions (also known as "new talent") for Atlanta-based actors (also known as "fresh faces") to appear in current and upcoming productions. Actors who had never auditioned for the company before were now able to submit general submissions.  Finally, in 2020, the studio released a casting call for residents of Atlanta to participate as paid extras, background actors, and stand-ins on the set of Perry's White House drama "The Oval."  Check out Project Casting for more Perry auditions. Who are the most famous Tyler Perry Studios casting director? Tyler Perry Studios has had a few CDs connected to it, including Alpha Tyler and Reuben Cannon (who also produced many of Tyler's films), but Rhavynn Drummer is the main name linked to his works. Since 2011, her eye for talent has been responsible for some of the most successful TV shows and blockbusters (“For  Better or Worse,” “The Haves and the Have Nots,” “If Loving You is Wrong,” “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” “Nobody's Fool,” and “A Fall from Grace”). She also held an open call in 2016 for new actors to work on Tyler's projects. Before becoming a Casting Director, Drummer began as an intern at the firm and advanced to the positions of assistant, associate casting director, and then CD. With a background in theater acting herself, she has a distinct—and extremely actor-friendly—approach to her job. She is credited with discovering and/or developing the careers of stars like Tiffany Haddish, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Lance Gross, and Taraji P. Henson. Tyler has said that he often relies on her casting instincts to help him make decisions about his productions. So, if you're looking to work with Tyler Perry Studios, make sure to submit to Rhavynn Drummer first and foremost. She tells it like it is, sharing that TPS and the casting crew are "the human resources for talent," noting they're "always looking for new actors and musicians since I never know what part will appear in a script, so we want to be prepared." The hardest part of casting a voice actor is not the creative work, but rather fielding their auditions. Drummer also casts 10-20 speaking roles per series and three to five voice actors per film for TPS. She explains, When I cast a voice actor, I'm attempting to hear how they connect with the script and scene vocally. What is the most famous Tyler Perry Studios production? The most famous Tyler Perry Studios production is probably the "Madea" franchise, which includes the movies "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," "Madea's Family Reunion," "Boo! A Madea Halloween," and "A Madea Christmas." The franchise has been extremely successful, with each movie-making more than its predecessor at the box office. In total, the Madea movies have grossed over $500 million worldwide. Perry has also produced several other successful films, like "The Family That Preys" and "Why Did I Get Married?" What is the Tyler Perry Studios open call policy? The Tyler Perry Studios' open call policy is that they hold open calls for new talent periodically. When they do, actors who are interested in working with the studio can submit their headshots and resumes to an email address that is provided. The studio team will then review the submissions and invite actors to come in for an audition if they are interested. What Tyler Perry projects are currently casting?

When you walk into that audition room, let the casting directors see how confident you are in your abilities. -Stay Positive: This industry can be tough, but it’s important to stay positive and keep your head up. There will be good days and bad days, but the key is to always move forward. -Network: Meeting other actors and casting directors is a great way to build relationships in the industry and learn more about what goes on behind the scenes.

Here's what it's like to cast speaking roles, principal roles and background acting roles in Marvel's "Avengers: Endgame". A couple of years ago, Project Casting shared casting calls from casting directors looking for actors, models, and talent to work on the next "Avengers" movie. Now, "Avengers: Endgame" is going down in the record books as one of the biggest movies in box history. The movie debuted to a worldwide total of $1.22 billion and became the first movie ever to make $1 billion around the world in their opening weekend. "Avengers: Endgame" centers around the events of the "Infinity War" as Thanos takes over the universe while Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers fight to save the world. "Avengers: Endgame" Extras Casting - How they did it [caption id="attachment_155469" align="aligncenter" width="667"] Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger at the World premiere of 'Avengers: Endgame' held at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, USA on April 22, 2019. - Image (Tinseltown /[/caption] In a blog posted by Central Casting, extras casting director Alyssa J. revealed what it was like to cast background actors, stand-ins and photo doubles for both "Avengers: Endgame" and "Avengers: Infinity War", which was shot in 2017. “For the most part, the first half of filming was dedicated to Infinity War and the last half of filming to Endgame,” Alyssa said. “However, the two movies were often shot out of order, or even more challenging, they were shot simultaneously. There would be a main unit that filmed scenes for Infinity War while an additional second unit filmed at the same time in a different location for Endgame.” Central Casting Georgia cast over 2,500 background actors, 100 stand-ins and 40 photo doubles to account for over 50 principal actors. Unlike "Infinity War", "Endgame" flashes back and forth between multiple time periods. Alyssa counts tehse scenes as some of her favorite and most challenging. “The most challenging scene to cast was the 1970s exterior Camp Lehigh sequence when Captain America and Tony Stark time travelled back to get the Pym particles and Infinity stone,” Alyssa said. “We needed over 150 Background Actors to work a two-day matching recall. The majority of them needed to be male soldiers which meant high and tights for almost everybody! We had to find 100+ men willing to have production cut their hair into a period-appropriate military style and be completely clean shaven, in addition to them also being physically fit. Needless to say, it was a challenge, but luckily we had a great group of background commit to this scene.” Marvel Casting - What it's like casting over 1,000 actors [caption id="attachment_154712" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Robert Downey Jr. at the premiere of Disney and Marvel's 'Avengers: Infinity War' held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, USA on April 23, 2018. - Image (Tinseltown /[/caption] But it begs the question, what is it like to cast the principal roles for the Marvel movies. In a recent Washington Post interview with Sarah Finn of Sarah Finn Casting, the casting director discussed what it was like casting Robert Downey Jr. and the complexities of casting so many A-list actors for such a big production. Casting Robert Downey Jr. She explained Marvel was confident in their decision in casting Robert Downey Jr. in "Iron Man" and it paid off. Downey's acting led to the resurgence of the Marvel superhero movies and launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Finn has taken on the task to cast every actor who appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes thousands of roles overall, ranging from characters as high-profile as Captain America to those as minor as his background dancers. The job calls for a certain level of foresight and being able to predict what kind of traits an actor would need for scenes that have yet to be imagined or written. What Marvel casting directors are looking for [caption id="attachment_148355" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] LAS VEGAS, NV, USA - SEP 20, 2017: Iron Man costume (from 2010 movie) at the Tony Stark base at the Avengers experience in Las Vegas. (Anton_Ivanov /[/caption] Due to the future of the Marvel franchise and the "Avengers" films, Feige knew she needed actors who could, as the Washington Post explained, "vibe with almost anyone else on screen." “When Thanos first appeared in the Marvel movies, it was really just a couple lines of dialogue. The character was shadowy and not that visible,” Finn says. “To see him go from a few lines to being one of the most iconic villains of all time in movie history, I don’t think Josh [Brolin] even knew how his character was going to be represented on screen, or the impact he would possibly have.” How Marvel managed scheduling conflicts [caption id="attachment_155467" align="aligncenter" width="1280"] Zoe Saldana at the World premiere of 'Avengers: Endgame' held at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, USA on April 22, 2019. - Image (Tinseltown /[/caption] Another challenge was scheduling. Coordinated by a producer on "Infinity War", arranging schedules for A-list actors was "a tremendous feat that probably hasn’t been done ever,” she says. But production schedules can also impact casting. When discussions started as to who will appear in the "Spider-Man" franchise, Finn says they had to find an actor who would not have a growth spurt in a few years. “We had to find a young actor who hopefully wasn’t going to grow six inches in the intervening time period,” Finn laughs. “Poor Tom Holland was so antsy and ready to start shooting.” Finn explains production companies hire casting directors 3 to 4 months before filming but she started searching for talent up to a year or two in advance. Essentially, it is about finding actors who will be loved by fans and will do the characters justice, which takes time for such a big project. Casting Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and Black Widow [caption id="attachment_155466" align="aligncenter" width="666"] LOS ANGELES, USA. April 22, 2019: Scarlett Johansson at the world premiere of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Endgame". Picture: Paul Smith/Featureflash - Image[/caption] A "daunting" challenge included finding an actor to play Thor. Producers were looking for someone who features “both the qualities of an Asgardian god and be a relatable figure on Earth.” Chris Hemsworth was known at the time for playing Captain Kirk's father in "Star Trek" and Tom Hiddleston, who plays Thor's brother Loki, had done relatively small projects in England. Reports surfaced as to who would play Thor with a 2009 Vulture article saying “Marvel Rolls Dice, Casts No-names for ‘Thor," a story Finn remembers. “I’ve lost a lot of sleep over the years,” Finn says. Chris Evans was also reluctant to play Captain America, which she explains worked out for the character. “He has a humility, a moral compass that is tangible and that the audience can really feel with him,” Finn says. Scarlett Johansson, who plays "Black Widow" was not known as an actor star at the time. But she "embraced that challenge . . . with strength and an endearing quality that really resonated with us.” Finn says she knew Ruffalo from his off-Broadway work and was “keyed into his sensibility as an actor, his intelligence, his subtlety”, which were key traits they wanted to bring to Bruce Banner and The Hulk. The process for casting voice actors was not that serious. Vin Diesel's performance in "The Iron Giant" allowed him to land the role of "Groot". Bradley Cooper was known for changing his voice and his comedic style landed his role as "Rocket". “I could go on and on and say how proud I am,” Finn says.
