ACTORS… GET AN AGENT (15 Hollywood Talent Agents Starting with X)

15 Hollywood Talent Agents

You are only 1 Cattle-Call & 2 Call-Backs away from fame-and-fortune… but you need an agent.

Now, you’ve heard you can’t get a job acting if you’re not in the union…. The union being Screen Actors Guild (SAG), not American Guild of Variety Artists (AGVA) or American Federation of TV Radio Alliance (AFTRA)…. But you can’t get into this union unless you have qualified acting parts from SAG Signator companies.

Is this a 22? You know, a “Catch-22” or is this “Bull Sh*t”. Well, the Catch-22 for Actors states… “You have to book a job to get into the union and you have to be in the union to book a job.

Answer: It is “Bull Sh*t”. Every actor starts somewhere… and remember you are unique and no one looks like you. So if you get into a casting session, for union parts, and the Producer or Director or Client wants you, for whatever reason, but you are not in the union, they can easily claim that you’re unique and the only one qualified for the look of the part and then you can get in.

So lets start & get a gig, your first gig,…and whether it’s union or non-union right now I bet “you don’t care’ you just want a gig… but does it help to have an agent?

Well of course it helps to have an agent or agency, that knows who’s casting, to send you to the Cattle-Call. But you’ve asked friends, acquaintances, waiters, cab drivers, even your local Uber Driver, and anyone that says they know anyone in Hollywood….”Hey you know an agent I can call” has become your war cry.

Permit me to help… Last week I blogged a list of 20 Literary Agents (Hollywood based) for wannabee-writers who find themselves in a similar situation.

Now allow me to give you as similar list of 15 Talent Agents in Los Angeles… but I am going to start from the end of the alphabet and move forward.

Why? Because, these are the agents who likely get hit-on (cold called) the least and your chance of lightening hitting might be a little better.


For writers it’s difficult. They first have to write and then forward their script in hopes of being read and being discovered. But, actors only have to show up, bring their headshot and be polite. (of course it’s not that easy)

Here’s what I’m talking about. When I was a kid my dad gave me advice. “If you want to write…phone. If you think about phoning…visit”.

Point #1: I am making is “Actors, I am about to give you 15 Talent Agents and I know your instinct is to mail them a headshot… Stop. You’re being lazy or shy. Two traits that will not allow you to succeed in Hollywood. Thus, if you can write… phone. If you can phone go/visit”

Point #2: Take your headshot to the 15 Talent Agents below, and drive (Uber if needed) to each of there offices. Walk in. Say “Hello” and drop off your headshot proclaiming you’re available when ever and where ever.

Acting success, after talent & looks, is a numbers game. The more parts you go up for the better the opportunity of finding the director that for whatever reason thinks your perrrrrfect.

Now on to 1 CATTLE-CALL and 2 CALL-BACKS


To help increase your odds I have made a list doing “reverse-alphabet” (starting with “Z” and going forward).

Why? Because everyone starts with “A”.

“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink”  The legwork is now up to you…

Happy Filmmaking,

      I’m a 14 year old who realy wants to act but my parents dont really care about me because I’m adopted so what do I do please answer and help

      1. Marie says:

        Hi Stella. This is what you do. Find a friend at school that has a camera and ask them to take photos of you for your head shots. You guys can research together how to take the best head shots. Make sure you look natural but pretty. Then, if you have any money, print as many photos of your headshots as you can. If you don’t have any money, just save them to your email. You can either mail the headshots to agencies or email them. Just google Los Angeles acting agencies and send to as many as you can! Best of luck. Don’t ever give up!

        1. Rachel says:

          But that doesn’t do much because she doesn’t have any experience.Its kinda like sending them a head shot and saying trust me, im a good actor. Ive tried… it doesn’t work. Im just on the rim of giving up bc ive tried everything.. Competitions which i always get to the top 5 but not the winner. Mailing letters, no response. Emailing, also no response. Calling, but the only thing they said is i have to pay 100 for a meeting with them (multiple said this). And i have no open calls around me. Any advice????? HELP

  28. Yuri Fu says:

    Hi! I’m Yuri from Hong Kong. I love English ,reading, singing and acting. I’m now 15 and have always desired to be an actress in Hollywood. I’m now studying in a secondary school and have joined the school drama team. I really enjoy taking part in a movie!
    I know the first step of being an actress is to get an agent, but it’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to find one in Hong Kong that works in Hollywood! Don’t you agree?
    Also, My mum said I am only dreaming to be one( she doesn’t think I can succeed to be one), and I know that someone have said,’ dreaming to be an actress is more excited than being one’, but I think to myself, if everyone who wants to be an actress is JUST DREAMING, no one will ever be successful!
    So I deeply hope that I will find an agent😣. You are welcome to give suggestions!
    I’m ready! And I don’t want to start late!
