Lauren began her casting career working for one of LA's top television casting offices, Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer, and later worked for Mali Finn, one of the most respected feature film casting directors in the business. Under Mali's tutelage, Lauren worked with directors such as Andrew Dominik, Antoine Fuqua, Joel Schumacher, and James Cameron. Following Mali's retirement, Lauren teamed with brother Jordan to open bass/casting.
Jordan has always loved the arts and the entertainment industry. Jordan began his career as a performer in musical theatre, working at regional theatres such as Paper Mill Playhouse, Sacramento Music Circus, and Musical Theatre West as well performing Off-Broadway and on national tours. Following a two-year National tour and Broadway run with Cathy Rigby's 'Peter Pan', Jordan landed in Los Angeles, hoping to find a second passion - which he easily did in the world of casting - cutting his teeth as an assistant/associate on such projects as the Motley Crue biopic THE DIRT, the graphic novel inspired film TRAILER PARK OF TERROR, and BOOGEYMAN 2. Shortly thereafter, the partnership that is bass/casting was born.
