Former ‘Criminal Minds’ Casting Director Shuts Down Acting Workshops

Following the Pay-to-Play controversy, former Criminal Minds casting director Scott David made an announcement that he will be shutting down his popular North Hollywood-based The Actors Link, which the Criminal Minds talent procurer has co-owned with his business partner Brett Weinstock for four years.
According to media reports, Scott David lost his longtime job the day after an investigation into the entertainment industry’s culture of Pay-to-Play auditions. Since then, the casting director has closed the doors to his “controversial” acting workshop business.David told a major online media outlet he has not decided whether he will teach classes at ACE Studios in the future, but the announcement noted he’d “chosen to focus on his own career in casting, teaching and coaching.”

This news comes after a petition  urging Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer to “hold these companies accountable for their actions” has passed over 13,500 signatures, while the Casting Society of America established a committee to encourage members to abide by California’s state labor laws.
