I checked and it appears to be on the level. Magnamedia Casting Agency — based in New York, Beverly Hills, and London — announced today the addition of a new and specialised division called Senior Stars for “mature, name talent” for films, television, legitimate theatre, commercials, PSAs, infomercials, print, and personal appearances. According to Magnamedia’s Casting Executive Peter Hyde Sr, the group represented are all seasoned and known performers and entertainment industry professionals above age 55. “We fill that niche with great talent — names and faces you knew back when; personalities who filled casting needs extremely well but whose current agents don’t expend the effort required to keep those actor-clients on the money trail.” The news release suggested that senior A and B listers or their agents can sign in with Magnamedia, let it do the work of submission, reading appointments, and calls, and then if an offer is made, the original agency can negotiate and book.
