G. Charles Wright, casting director
G. Charles Wright is celebrating his 10th year in casting. He uses the word "celebrating" because he loves his career. In his career G has cast 14 television pilots, four TV series, and three Web series.

G started his casting career as an intern on "3rd Rock From the Sun." He quickly moved up the ranks from assistant to associate casting director on "That '70s Show," and became that series' casting director for seasons 6 through 8. G is the casting director for the PBS and Jim Henson Co. animated series "Sid the Science Kid." He is the casting director, along with partner Deborah Barylski, of the new ABC comedy series "The Middle," starring Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, and Chris Kattan.

A graduate of USC with a degree in communications (emphasis on television and critical studies), G has been on both sides of the camera—as an actor and as a casting director. In addition to full-time casting and part-time performing, G has been teaching actors how to audition for eight years. His weekly class is sold out months in advance and boasts a list of popular working actors.
