  • Simon Casting is an absolute must for production in Chicago. Claire and her team consistently went above and beyond in helping us populate the landscape of “Boss” with an amazing pool of local actors. Both personally and professionally a joy to work with, I can’t recommend Simon Casting highly enough. Plus, it’s hands down the most comfortable casting office ever!”
