Joshua Rappaport


Born and raised in Los Angeles I began my professional acting career in 1975 studying with the revered teacher, Jeff Corey. I earned my SAG card in 1976. One day, in 1986, I got a call from Danny Goldman, one of the busiest commercial casting directors in Los Angeles. He asked if I had ever thought about running a casting session, I told him I hadn’t. He invited me to watch asession the next day and the day after that I was running the session. I proceeded to run casting sessions for Danny, and various other commercial casting directors, for the next 20 years. During that time I continued to grow and develop as an artist, I studied with the brilliant acting coach Roy London, I wrote for television, I directed theater. In 2009 I opened my own casting office, Casting Brothers, with Alan Kaminsky, and we’ve continued to thrive in the commercial world. I’ve been involved in the casting of thousands of commercials and conducted hundreds of thousands auditions. I still find working with actors to be the best part of my job!
