Buffalo Film Casting is the leading film casting agency in the Western New York
area. During the past two years, owner and 30-year member of the Screen Actor's Guild, Frank Rossi has cast 50 local Principal Roles in the Hollywood Feature films, Cold Brook and Marshall.
In 2016, Buffalo Film Casting was given the assignment to cast 28 of the 52
Principal Roles in the Hollywood feature film, Marshall. Mr. Rossi wrote up the
breakdowns, got the appropriate sides to the actors, then personally put on tape
over 175 actors for the various roles. Because of Frank's 30 years of experience as an actor and acting coach, he was very comfortable with providing direction and
reading with each actor who auditioned.
Director Reggie Hudlin and producers Jonathan Sanger and Paula Wagner
approved 60 of the actors Mr. Rossi brought to them for 30 roles, ultimately casting 26 Principals and 10 more in the criminal jury.
Starring in Marshall were: Chad Boseman, Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Dan Stevens,
Sterling Brown and James Cromwell.
In 2017, Buffalo Film Casting was given its second assignment with the casting of
William Fichtner's Hollywood directorial debut film, Cold Brook. Mr Rossi brought in 152 actors for the 24 roles he was asked to find. All 24 roles were cast locally.
The film stars, William Fichtner, Kim Coates, Brad Henke, Harold Perrineau,

Mr. Rossi has a very unique way of casting. Not only can he break down sides and read with each actor, but having spent 21 years in New York and Los Angeles,
Frank has also developed relationships with dozens of strong actors from the
Buffalo and Rochester areas who have relocated to New York and LA. Because of
this added advantage, Buffalo Film Casting was able to bring in eight terrific actors to work as local hires on Cold Brook and Marshall.
Buffalo Film Casting also maintains personal relationships with agents and actors out of Pittsburgh and Cleveland, which only adds to the talent pool available for
the next feature film shooting in the Buffalo, NY area. 6 Actors in Marshall are
