Casting Directors: When Will Oscars Recognize the Impact We Have on Films?
The Wrap | By Sharon Waxman on January 14, 2013 @ 6:59 pm
Five top casting directors — including several whose films hit paydirt with Academy Award nominations — sound off on an underappreciated art. Oscar, anyone?
Oscar nominations are out, the Golden Globes are done. But long before the cameras roll, some of the most important work — that isn't eligible for awards — is done.
TheWrap gathered the casting directors on some of the season’s leading films to talk about their work, why it can be emotionally draining and whether it ought to be recognized with its own Oscar.
Gathered around a table at the Montage hotel recently were, from left above: Terri Taylor ("Hitchcock"), Vicki Thomas ("Django Unchained"), John Papsidera ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Mary Vernieu ("Silver Linings Playbook") and Lora Kennedy ("Argo," "Cloud Atlas").
Let’s talk about "Hitchcock."
Taylor: "Hitchcock" was the opposite experience. It was so revered and the actors loved it and wanted to be a part of the film. So we didn’t have to deal with actors saying, "No thank you," or "The subject matter isn’t for me." But it was tough because people know the characters I’m trying to cast, and there was that association that you want to get right. You had big names playing big names and you had to get that right. They were stars and we had to pay attention to that while casting. Physically people in that decade held themselves differently and spoke differently. They had a different cadence.
How did you come up with that incredible casting of James D’Arcy as Tony Perkins?
Taylor: That was an amazing light-bulb crazy experience, and we almost didn’t have him in (to test) because Tony Perkins was in his mid-to-late 20s at the time Psycho was made, and James D’Arcy is not in his mid-to-late 20s anymore. But the physicality was spot on and we all liked him as an actor.
But how did you think of him?
Taylor: When Sacha writes a script he assembles actors at his home and they read through to help him hear his script. So he knew James,and I knew James, so we said, ‘Let’s ignore the fact that he’s not in his late 20s anymore." I had Tony (Hopkins) in most of my auditions from day one. From the moment James D’Arcy sat down in his chair and opened his mouth, it was clear that it was his job, but Tony actually laughed out loud, he went "Oh my God, Oh my God I’m so sorry, it’s just uncanny." And then he said, “Right, let’s actually do your audition.”
