Casting Children of the Corn

I have a new job in addition to my duties as an actor and acting teacher. I am the Casting Director for a remake of the 70's cult horror film "Children of the Corn".

This is an amazing experience. Every professional actor should put in some time as a Casting Director as part of their training. I wish I had done this twenty years ago--it would have saved me a lot of mistakes.

No time for details now, I am off to conduct a casting sesson. More later!

Fun gig! Poor form to cast yourself, I guess(?) LOL! Could totally see you in the role Linda Hamilton played in the original (1984) film. Always one of my favorite Stephen King shorts (right behind "The Raft").

Good luck with the job!
