Two Cats Casting is an independent casting office based in Los Angeles specializing in casting actors and dancers for film, theatre, commercials, digital content, photography and live performances.

Our mission is to find the authentic faces that make your unique project as inclusive as the American population. We pride ourselves in opening our doors in order to discover new talent, fostering change in representation by diving into the human stories behind the characters' breakdowns, and eliminating hurdles of locating "hard-to-find" types through community outreach and casting-based advocacy.

We are based in Los Angeles with a pool of talent in New York, San Francisco, and Phoenix.

A BIT ABOUT US...

Two Cats Casting is comprised of Nancy Dobbs Owen and Reena Dutt. Collectively they have garnered casting experience through necessity, passion and the drive to find out-of-the-box talent on a variety of projects they have been involved with as producers, directors and choreographers. Doing it themselves also lead them to advocate for representation in the media. It is far too often as directors and choreographer we've been told the ### demographic doesn't doesn't have the skillset, is too hard to find, or "wouldn't fit" for the part. We are here to demolish those pre-conceived notions through empathy, integrity, authenticity and persistence. It takes a village, and our village is a big one. These two cats are here to prove the talent exists and non-traditional voices can be the new norm.
