You should know your complete wardrobe sizes (Men: coat, neck, sleeve, waist, inseam, and shoe) (Women: dress, bust, cup, waist, hips, and shoe) (Kids: shirt, pant, shoe).
  • After pre-registering online, you must  verify your employment eligibility in the United States. To verify your registration, you will need a valid photo id (drivers license, school id, passport, military id, or state issued id) and social security card. Your ID documents cannot be expired. A DocuSign verification email will be sent to you for each new project/production you’re hired on. See for more info.

No; there are no fees of any kind to register or work through Tower Casting.

You do not need professional photos to work as a background actor. For background casting we prefer snap shots or untouched photos in various wardrobe looks.  Some looks include but not limited too:

  • Business
  • Nice Casual
  • Sports Attire (no logos)
  • Formal Gown or Tuxedo
  • Uniforms
  • Swimsuit (adults only)
  • Other looks you own

We may post casting calls for you to upload or submit photos in a specific outfit, style, or look.

Some email providers have very strict security measures which can block our sent emails.
