    Wow, how offensive! I’m 52, and my age group is not included in any of your “research” groups. I guess my opinion doesn’t matter. Nice.

      That’s not the case with research groups or castings. Research groups target specific demographics and recruit people in those demographics. For example a juniors clothing line would want people 14 to 27. A child’s toy company would want kids. A healthcare product used by seniors would want seniors. The companies are simply looking for people that represent what they are selling.

      I once got completely ripped in comments over a family casting call which included a free vacation. The casting was specifically for a family with 2 kids of a certain ethnicity. What everyone who was offended missed was the fact that the casting was for a final category and the company had published countless casting calls for the same project. The original casting was looking for families of all types including adopted kids, blended families, single parents, mixed ethnicity, same sex couples, and all ethnicities of all ages. The one that people found offensive was specifically to fill the last spot.

      Casting directors put out calls for people they are STILL trying to get often times because the rest have been cast. If I needed a group of people of all ages and ethnicities and had already cast ages 5 to 10, 11 to 18, 20 to 35, 50 to 65, 65+…. I would put out a casting for only what I needed so people do not waste their time applying for filled roles.
