Without wasting any more time, let's get to the Q&A.

Kabookit: How did you get involved with SALVATION BOULEVARD?
Pound & Mooney: We were hired to do the Michigan principal casting. We had worked with the line producer on a past film.

Kabookit: Can you provide a brief overview of how the Casting process went?
Pound & Mooney: Very well. We held auditions at our offices and uploaded the actors we thought were the best to a casting site. The director/writer/producers would view and choose who they wanted to see for callbacks. Then the director came to our offices for callbacks. The Director George Ratliff was a pleasure to work for.

Kabookit: Casting out of Michigan, are there any unique challenges and/or opportunities that one wouldn’t encounter casting in Los Angeles or New York?
Pound & Mooney: We are very Midwest. Which means we’re real and tell it like it is. We go out of our way and bend over backwards to be accommodating. An actor who moved back after working on a soap opera for a decade came into our audition room recently and said he couldn’t believe it, actors were helping each other with their lines - even though they were reading for the same part. We tend to be like that. The obstacles can be trying to find certain types that LA and NY would have tons of...like Latinos, although we did find all the Hmong actors for Gran Torino, so it can happen. We have a nice talent pool. Very strong in many categories but not so much in some areas like the hot young babes. They tend to move, but if you need ‘real’ looking actors with great chops to play construction workers, CIA Officers, Guido’s - you need not look any farther. We have very strong theatre schools and pull from our contacts at the universities. I’m the Michigan representative for the Dramatists Guild and, along with my partner, am always going to theatre and finding new actors.

Kabookit: There are many recognizable stars in SALVATION BOULEVARD – Jennifer Connelly, Pierce Brosnan, Marissa Tomei, Ed Harris, and Greg Kinnear to name a few – but there are many other talented actors appearing in this film. Many are Midwest based actors. Are there any names/faces we should be keeping an eye on?
Pound & Mooney: Ele Bardha, Cindy Chu, Mike Eshaq, John Hawkinson, Mary Callaghan Lynch, Julia Glander, Josh Carrizales, Michael Maurice, Garrett Fuller, Debra Port.

Kabookit: What are you working on now?
Pound & Mooney: Have a Little Faith - Mitch Albom’s movie from his book of the same title. We are starting Game Time next month and a reality TV series next week.
