about

Kerry Barker was born and raised in Los Angeles and is an independent casting director with over a decade of experience. She worked at some of the biggest casting offices in LA before becoming the Director of Talent and Casting at CollegeHumor and later at Defy Media, where she cast series, commercials, and countless viral videos featuring some of the funniest performers working today.  

She now casts award-winning theatrical and branded projects that have played at Sundance and SXSW, on CNN and Hulu, and (probably) on your phone, discovering fresh faces and attaching stars like Jean Smart, Will Arnett, and Jack Black. She loves collaborating with interesting and dynamic creators to find the perfect performers to bring their stories to life. Her natural affinity for actors, sharp eye for talent, and unwavering grace under pressure make her an excellent choice for your casting needs.
