The article presents the author's opinion on casting in contemporary times. The author states that actors come from all around the world to Los Angeles and New York City as they are the entertainment capitals. According to him, the problem with the employment of technological innovation in casting is that the process is becoming more impersonal. He also thinks that an evening's theatrical performance seems an ideal way to judge an actor and cast him.
