Everything Is Awesome!


Especially the Lego Movie

There are few movies that the whole family can enjoy, and everyone at CASTINGHUB agrees, that the Lego Movie is one of those movies. The premise of the movie is that this adventure takes place in a completely Lego world, down to the food and water and mild mannered Emmet is at the center of the story. This movie is kind of a pop culture free-for-all because it’s probably the only place where you could see Batman, Superman, Gandalf, Milhouse, and the Statue of Liberty in the same movie all working together.

 

The kids will love the movie because it has all of their favorite characters together in one place, adults will love it because the movie is actually thoroughly entertaining. Tegan and Sara are the ones behind the theme song. Click to view the whole song it you dare because it will be stuck in your head all day.

The movie creators are behind the surprise hits Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street so if you have any reservations about the movie throw them away, because it will be a great movie.

Jariah Griggs

Casting Hub has discovered the next great American actress! Seven year-old Jariah Griggs’s career is about to take off now that she has signed with the Louisville branch of Heyman Talent.  4 months ago, Jariah first came to the Casting Hub audition, and her talent and winning personality were easy to see. That should come as no surprise as Jariah has competed in beauty pageants before, she has won for both best smile and best personality.

With the help of Casting Hub, a commercial networking service specifically for actors, models, and anyone looking to get into the entertainment industry, Jariah auditioned for the premiere talent agency.

Heyman Talent is renowned talent agency that represents actors and models nationwide. Founded in 1989, Heyman Talent is “based on a quality-driven approach to talent representation and client service,” (Heyman Talent Agency website). The talent agency has placed talent in television shows such as HBO’s “True Detective” and CW’s “Star Crossed”; in feature films such as Hallmark channel’s “The Christmas Spirit” starring Nicollette Sheridan and “Franny” starring Richard Gere; as well as commercials for McDonalds and Sylvan Learning Center.

Jariah will be in great hands at Heyman talent, especially since one of the agents there is Chris Kaufman, who discovered Grammy winning Nichole Scherzinger and Academy Awarding Winning actress Jennifer Lawrence. It won’t be long before Jariah is included Heyman’s next great success story, just as she is one of Casting Hub’s many success stories.  Casting Hub looks forward to helping Jariah on her future path to success and making her dreams come true.

CASTINGHUB has done it again! Newark resident and model extraordinaire Aspen Ireland, is about to catapult into fame now that she has signed with Wilhelmina Philadelphia. At just 9 years old, Aspen Ireland already shows more tenacity and talent than most people you may meet. She has always known that she wanted to be a star and that nothing would stop her from making that dream come true.

Monique Ireland described how she found out about this amazing opportunity:

“I submitted Aspens information I found through Casting Hubs site under representation in the Philadelphia area. A few weeks after that I received an email about being selected for an open call on November 30th.  The following Monday I received a call telling me that Aspen was chosen to be represented by Wilhemina talent agency. Now we are preparing Aspen for her photo shoot with Wilhemina so that she can be viewed as an actor and model on Wilhemina’s website!”

CASTINGHUB first saw Aspen’s amazing talent in Philadelphia in May of 2013 and right away,  CASTINGHUB scouts  honed in on Aspen’s it factor. The dedicated team at CASTINGHUB rallied around Aspen. Aspen learned about the open call for Wilhelmina Philadelphia and was determined to show everyone that she is America’s next top model. CASTINGHUB describes Aspen’s talented mystique as ”raw sophistication WELL beyond her years.” And “This little starlet is guaranteed to shine”.

To be a Wilhelmina model means that you are the best of the best. Wilhelmina Philadelphia is the premiere modeling agencies in Pennsylvania and part of one the most well-known and well regarded modeling agencies in the world. Wilhelmina Philadelphia has discovered amazing talent such as Brittani Kline, the cycle 16 winner of America’s Next Top Model. The children’s division  has placed its talent in films such as “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” and the 2013 blockbuster starring Johnny Depp “Lone Ranger”; television networks like Nickelodeon; and the Broadway of Annie.

Aspen got her first taste of the acting bug in elementary school while performing in the Black History Month play at her school, and that was what first made Aspen realize just how much she loved to be on stage and in the spotlight. But acting is not enough for Aspen. She also excels in dancing styles including Ballet, Tap and Jazz, and also had done runway modeling for Moya Heyward and Renee Larue.

Aspen’s story is just one of the many testaments to CASTINGHUB’s dedication to finding the next big stars. To learn about more CASTINGHUB’s success stories, visit www.castinghubreviews.com.

The Color of 2014


Every year Pantone comes out with a color of the year. For 2013, that color was emerald. Now that we are slowly coming closer to the new year the color of 2014 is “Radiant Orchid”.

Pantone said, “While the 2013 color of the year, Pantone 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

 

The color is a great indicator of what will be popular this year not only in fashion, but also in advertising as well. The color has been featured for 2014 fashion shows already and we will probably be seeing more of it in the new year.

 

How will you wear “Radiant Orchid” in the new year?

10 Years Later


It seems that when it comes to entertainment and TV, the more things change, the more they stay the same. We have have all kinds of new shows and concepts, yet they all reflect the shows of the past.

 

In 2003, reality TV was still relatively new, now it’s just everywhere and there are entire television channels devoted to them. We have seen into the lives of housewives, celebrities, and everyone else in between. The West Wing dominated as the top political thriller on television, and now Scandal has taken on that role. Although the focus is on Olivia Pope, people are still glued their seats and the President is still the most powerful person in country.

 

TV has frustrated us with crazy endings that made no sense (Dexter anyone?) and people are still trying to make big splashes on VMAs. We still have shows about young women who are trying to find themselves, they’ve just moved on from grade school to their early 20s. Vampires dominated the supernatural genre, and 10 years later Vampires are showing up everywhere.

 

It seems at the end of the day, although the storylines and premises are different, the major ideas remain. It seems to be a case of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it”.

The Amazing Spider Man Sequel


We are officially excited for this movie. It’s 2 minutes worth of great information and a great visual idea of what to expect from this movie. We see a lot of new villains and are especially excited to see Jamie Foxx playing Electro. There has been a lot of teasing about Electro so seeing him in action and even have a short voice over established that he’s going to be a big threat (or at least one of many).

The tone of the movie looks a lot darker and more serious. The movie is raising the stakes for Spider Man and this may be the movie where (SPOILER ALERT) Emma Stone’s character dies. We can’t to see more teasers come our way! Are you excited to see the new movie?
