Episode 20 - Jane Jenkins


Today we’re excited to sit down with Jane Jenkins. She’s a delight, both to talk to and listen to, and it’s probably safe to say that she’s had a hand in casting at least one of your favorite nostalgic movies in her incredible career. Her early career working at Zoetrope lead to collaborations like that of her and her partner at The Casting Company Janet Hirshenson. Jane worked on movies like The Princess Bride, A Beautiful Mind, Beetlejuice, Dune, Apollo 13, Mrs. Doubtfire, Ghost, Hook, Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, Labyrinth, Willow, and a whole lot more.
