Laray

Laray Mayfield has worked with the Oscar-nominated director David Fincher for 30 years. In 1999, she made her transition from casting music videos and commercials to feature films with Fincher’s Fight Club, starring Ed Norton and Brad Pitt. Since then, her collaboration with Fincher has resulted in an extensive list of award-winning features, including The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl.

Other notable features that Laray cast include the 2011 remake of Footloose (by the director of Hustle and Flow, Craig Brewer) Spring Breakers (Director Harmony Korine), Palo Alto (Director Gia Coppola), and The Intern (Director Nancy Meyers). Recently, she cast several high-profile features that are currently in production or post-production. These include Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (both directed by James Foley), as well as the live-action adaptation of a popular Japanese manga series – Death Note (Director Adam Wingard).

In 2012, Laray delved into television with the series HOUSE OF CARDS on Netflix, for which she and her partner Julie Schubert won the 2013 Emmy for ‘Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series’ and were nominated for the same Emmy in 2014, 2015, and 2016. Their work on this series from its inception to present has also been honored by the Casting Society of America; they won the Artios award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Casting on a Television Drama’ in 2013, then were nominated for the category in both 2015 and 2016.

Their extraordinary work on Netflix is not exclusive to HOUSE OF CARDS. Together they cast seasons 1 and 2 of the DAREDEVIL series, as well as the first seasons of IRON FIST and LUKE CAGE, both for NETFLIX. Their commitment to excellence will continue as they cast new Marvel series for NETFLIX this fall.

In 2015, Laray served as a panel judge for the Heath Ledger Scholarship. She is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Television Academy, and the Casting Society of America.

Julie

Julie began her career in New York as an assistant, then associate, to casting directors Juliet Taylor and Ellen Lewis. Her casting department credits include The Departed, The Interpreter, The Devil Wears Prada, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and Boardwalk Empire. After accumulating an impressive resume of high-profile credits, she became a full casting director. Her early CD credits include Confessions of a Shopoholic and Deliver Us From Evil.

Julie began working with Laray Mayfield in 2009, when Laray hired her to do the New York local casting of Paper Man & Last Night. In 2011, they teamed up again for the re-envisioning of Footloose, on which Julie did the Atlanta local casting. Laray recognized Julie as a vital asset to her casting company, and the two entered into a full partnership during season one of House of Cards.

Today, Julie runs their office in NYC, where she and her associates/assistants are responsible for the episodic casting on House of Cards, Luke Cage, Mindhunter, Iron Fist, and Daredevil – all of which shoot on the east coast. Julie co-casts pilots, series, and feature films with Laray, including the original casting for the aforementioned series, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed, and Death Note. She is a member of the Television Academy and the Casting Society of America.

Press

 

“Boyz N the Hood’s John Singleton is attached to direct a third Till drama, to be produced by Michael De Luca (American History X, The Social Network) and Laray Mayfield, with a screenplay by Michael Roden And Jerry Mitchell, the MacArthur Award–winning journalist whose reporting since 1989 helped convict four Klansmen of fatal 1960s hate crimes. In the third project, Empire’s Taraji P. Henson is slated to portray Till’s resilient mother, Mamie Till Bradley, who, by insisting that photos of her son’s disfigured body be published, served to galvanize the civil-rights movement.”

“So I tanked my House of Cards audition. But the lovely casting agent for the show, Laray Mayfield–who also cast me in Zodiac–gave me another shot. That’s so generous. Nobody does that. Either you land a role or you don’t. And I didn’t land Gavin. But she called and said ‘Come try again.'”

“Sure, you probably knew Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali and Alfre Woodard before this Marvel drama, but part of casting is taking actors people know and giving them roles that define or redefine what we know about them. Simone Missick, Erik LaRay Harvey and fall TV’s stealth MVP Ron Cephas Jones will also get boosts thanks to the work of casting directors Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert.” – Daniel Fienberg, Hollywood Reporter

“Featuring one of the most diverse casts of any series on television, set in Harlem, addressing myriad modern social issues facing communities of color, Luke Cage is bold and unapologetic in its willingness to portray realistic situations reflecting both past and present cultural and political truths— and the convergence of the past and present. This is storytelling at its finest, luck enough to have a cast and crew bringing it to vivid, inspired life as it deserves…The entire cast is so good, it’s hard not to spend pages writing about every single person involved (Harlem itself is a major character in the show, by the way).” – Mark Hughes, Forbes

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2016/09/30/review-luke-cage-is-the-gold-standard-for-superhero-television/#49cdb7f44106


“Casting overall should be exquisite as we know that both Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert are re-teaming for Marvel & Netflix to collect the actors for Iron Fist. Mayfield and Schubert are both Emmy Award Winners and have worked together on casting Season 1 of Daredevil as well as House of Cards. If these shows tell us anything, it’s that we are in for a great cast of characters. I’m excited to see what they create.”

“It’s hard to pick just one performance in ‘Gone Girl’ as a favorite. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike have gotten the deserved share of praise and attention for playing Nick and Amy Dunne, but David Fincher and casting director Laray Mayfield didn’t just stop after finding the perfect leads. From Carrie Coon to Tyler Perry to Neil Patrick Harris to Patrick Fugit to even the cat, the cast of ‘Gone Girl’ excels as a company. This is truly one of the year’s best acting ensembles in the true sense of that word.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/07/kim-dickens-gone-girl_n_5945428.html 


“Laray Mayfield is very supportive of me and she sent me the project. I know when she’s attached to something it’s cool, so right away I was paying attention.” – Patrick Fugit

http://www.interviewmagazine.com/culture/patrick-fugit


“Sevigny’s years in the business helped her recruit a team of key collaborators for Kitty. She hired casting director Laray Mayfield, ‘She’s cast me in more things than any other casting director of my career.”

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/cannes-hidden-gem-chloe-sevigny-892163


“First of all, we have to give a huge shout out to Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert who were our casting directors and won the Emmy for House of Cards. They brought an extraordinary cast for us to look at and helped us to seed where we were.” – Stephen DeKnight

http://comicbook.com/2015/04/09/daredevil-deknight-loeb-on-storytelling-violence-and-opening-cre/


“For all that, “House of Cards” remains eminently watchable, in large part a testimonial to the splendid casting, from Spacey and Wright on down.”

http://variety.com/2016/tv/reviews/house-of-cards-season-4-review-netflix-kevin-spacey-robin-wright-michael-kelly-1201715232/


“Boomtown is the first film taking place in the Bakken Formation, a region long known for high amounts of source rock that since 2000 has been a major center of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. It’s the feature debut of Sabyn Mayfield, who co-wrote the script with David Newbert. Mayfield and Newbert produce, and it’s executive produced by Laray Mayfield, and Thirty Tigers.”

http://deadline.com/2015/10/boomtown-sets-leads-for-oil-drama-before-i-fall-lands-main-cast-


“The cast has to be as carefully selected as the crew. You need a team; you can’t have people who are distracting. Laray is great at finding people. I watched Kim Dickens’ audition thinking, ‘Where do I know this person from?’ Of course it was ‘Treme,’ but she was so different, she was a surprise. And when it came to Officer Jim Gilpin, Laray said, ‘What about Patrick Fugit?’ I said, ‘Great idea! Bring him in.’ So sometimes Laray introduced us to someone we didn’t know, or thought of someone in a different way than we’d been thinking.” – David Fincher

http://variety.com/2014/artisans/news/directors-their-troops-david-fincher-on-his-gone-girl-team-1201385879/


“There’s definitely an irony that runs throughout the book,” Mayfield says. “And we were just lucky to put together a group of actors who got that and understood it wasn’t to be made into a comedy, but their experience as comedic actors gives them a take [on the material].”

http://www.backstage.com/interview/how-laray-mayfield-found-perfect-gone-girl/


“And for the mysterious Amy, Pike’s not being a household name served the movie well, Mayfield believes. ‘These kinds of iconic figures, especially when they come from books that are so successful-people have such attachments to them,’ she says. ‘Someone like Rosamund allows the character to breathe because people don’t have preconceptions about her. She is a fresh face. It allows for people to be able to project their expectations.'”

“House of Cards” won two Emmys-including one for Casting Directors Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert-making it the first new media program to take home the gold and proving that the network system is permanently doomed.”

http://www.backstage.com/news/casting-directors-win-big-creative-arts-emmys/


“We are so proud that both Casting and Cinematography were recognized with these historic Emmy wins for House of Cards and Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, said in a statement. “Laray Mayfield, Julie Schubert and Eigil Bryld’s work was truly exquisite, and the Academy’s acknowledgement for their work is richly deserved.”

http://mashable.com/2013/09/15/netflix-wins-emmy-outstanding-casting-drama/


“Laray Mayfield has been casting for David Fincher since 1986, so it only made sense that they would embark on their first foray into television together.”
“To help create the world of Washington DC power brokers, the Los Angeles-based Mayfield called on Julie Schubert, a New York-based Casting Director who worked with Mayfield on films like “Last Night” and “Footloose.” Together, the two have been nominated for an Emmy Award for casting for a drama series.”

http://www.backstage.com/interview/emmy-nominations-house-cards-cds-laray-mayfield-and-julie-schuster/


“You look online to try to find a definition of casting, and it talks about metalwork,” jokes Casting Director Julie Schubert. “No one really understands or knows what we do. It is a very fluid profession.”

http://www.backstage.com/news/spotlight/tomorrows-power-casting-directors/


“If there were a best casting Oscar this year, who might win? One candidate might be Laray Mayfield, who cast Rooney Mara as a badass hacker in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on the heels of her role as a staid college girl in 2010’s The Social Network. “It’s only the polar opposite,” says Teschner. “That’s good casting.”

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/why-casting-directors-cant-win-286174


“In the end, what solidifies the Director/Casting Director relationship is a special kind of chemistry renewed with each successful endeavor. “I certainly enjoy the other filmmakers I work with,” says Mayfield, “but because David (Fincher) and I know each other so well and have a shorthand, there’s probably a more natural flow than it would be with people you don’t know as well.”

http://variety.com/2011/film/news/hunting-in-pairs-1118046515/


Mayfield, who won an Artios Award from the Casting Society of America last year for “The Social Network,” started talking with Fincher about the casting of the new film in May 2010. “I was both excited and overwhelmed,” she says about taking on the highly anticipated project.”

“To prepare, she read all the books in Stieg Larsson’s trilogy. Then, to have a point of reference, she watched the 2009 Swedish film version of the novel. “There is always a concern when there is pre-existing material,” Mayfield says. But she points out that Fincher was basing his film on the book, not on the previous movie: “David is so honorable to the books, characters, and Sweden, so I wasn’t worried.”

“Mayfield says she is thrilled with how the film turned out: “I am always excited for audiences to see everything David does.”

http://www.backstage.com/news/casting-standout-the-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo/


“Mara and her elder sister, actor Kate Mara, had been on the radar of Casting Director Laray Mayfield (“Fight Club,” “Zodiac,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) for years. “There’s always something going on underneath the surface with Rooney,” says Mayfield. “She’s incredibly intriguing. Not only as an actor, but as a person.”

http://www.backstage.com/news/rising-stars/


“He’s a spellbinder. The choice of Timberlake is not only good casting by David Fincher and his Casting Director, Laray Mayfield, but good casting out of left field.”

http://www.rogerebert.com/interviews/justin-timberlake-sings-the-social-network-the-script-was-its-own-song-really


“How was your day last Thursday? Fine, thanks. Took the kids to school, thawed some chicken from the freezer-that kind of thing. How was Laray Mayfield’s day? Nothing special-the Middle Tennessee native fixed some coffee, sat down in front of the TV, and watched the movie she cast rack up more Oscar nominations than any other film made in 2008.”

“It was not difficult at all to cast-it was just joyful, every different type of character, every different stage of it,” Mayfield says. “It’s also amazing because when you work with David, you have the time to do it properly.”

“Mayfield, a single mom, had left Nashville to work with another music-video director, David Hogan, who went on to join Fincher in the groundbreaking production company Propaganda Films. Fincher made her his first assistant, and it was at his urging that she moved into casting.”

“Mayfield’s friend Dub Cornett, a Nashville producer and filmmaker, says she’s turned down a lot of work because it didn’t meet her standards. “She’s a real no-bullshit person,” Cornett says.”

http://www.nashvillescene.com/nashville/middle-tennessee-native-laray-mayfield-basks-in-benjamin-buttons-glow/Content?oid=1199720


“Less difficult was casting all the old characters. Mayfield told Fincher, “Honey, there is one place where you find elderly Southern people, and that is the South.” Mayfield set off to New Orleans, where she cast upward of 70 roles.

http://variety.com/2008/film/awards/casting-directors-search-and-employ-1117996563/


“Fincher’s Casting Director, Laray Mayfield, had seen Henson in “Hustle & Flow” portraying Shug, a meek, pregnant prostitute with an unexpectedly commanding singing voice, and decided to keep her in mind for future roles.”

http://variety.com/2008/film/awards/taraji-p-henson-3-1117994650/


“In a film with so many characters, the casting by Laray Mayfield is also crucial; like the only eyewitness in the case, we remember a face once we’ve seen it.”
