Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 808: What is the difference between an agent and a casting director?

There's actually nothing the same about them except that they're both human beings.

The basic responsibility of an agents is to represent clients, setting up meetings and submitting them for jobs. In some situations they have a lot more personal interaction, they may negotiate contracts, and they can even use leverage by packaging clients.

A casting director brings in actors for acting jobs. They may or may not have the final say in the hiring process.
