After 12 years in publishing, 36-year-old Paul Schnee became an intern at Hopkins Smith & Barden Casting, proving a fresh start is never too late.
When one of the associates relocated, Schnee was offered a casting assistant position. He and Kerry Barden soon fell into a pattern of working as a team, which led to the two forming Barden/Schnee Casting four years ago, after Hopkins Smith & Barden dissolved.
Since then, Schnee has cast such major films as "The Help," "Mirror Mirror," and "Win Win.
