A few months ago we posted a success story about Justin Luz. He was discovered by our very own Hank Ritter in our Sacramento office. Justin attended a convention in Las Vegas 2010 this summer and did phenomenally. He walked away with 49 callbacks from a variety of agents, casting directors, and managers while also claiming the convention's 2010 Male Model of the Year!
In a short period of time Justin has been extremely successful. Take a look at him on the cover of Men's Health magazine, Singapore!
Great Job Justin!

How many of you watched the hour long episode of "The Office" the other night, "A Classy Christmas"? That was our very own Taylar Holloman playing the role of Daryl's daughter. She was in most of the last half hour of the show, and had a ton of lines, and so much screen time. She looked adorable, and did an amazing job. She has been with us since ...before her 5th birthday.You are going to see a ton of postings about this terrific little actress.
Congrats from all your friends and fans at Seattle Talent, Taylar!
