About This Quiz

Roll out the red carpet for your film filled with all the hottest stars you can think of! Before you enter into the job of casting director, it's fun to think about how you would cast people in certain roles. Would you have them audition or would you just offer parts to people? If you're holding auditions, what are they reading? Will it be scenes from the particular movie, or will you choose a scene from your favorite flick? So many questions! The good news is, you're not on a time crunch with this quiz. You can choose actors and actresses to fill specific roles and do it at your own pace.

But don't take too long, because the star you choose might not be famous forever. There's a reason the saying "15 minutes of fame" exists. People go through phases of popularity just like anything else. That's why we can tell how old you are by which stars you choose. Some have just had their breakout role, while others have been gracing your screens for decades and aren't slowing down any time soon. Who is perfect for the movies you're working on? Take this quiz to cast your movie, and we'll guess how old you are!
