Legendary casting director Marion Dougherty.

What makes a great film? Sure you need a strong screenplay. Obviously the director has a lot of influence. But what about the casting?

It's a side of filmmaking that's often overlooked, but choosing which actors fill what roles is perhaps one of the most crucial jobs of all.

A new documentary called Casting By looks at the role of casting director, and director Tom Donahue joins Take Two.

The film opens Nov 8th at the Laemmle Royal in West LA, and Nov 15th at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood.
