Meet Bryan Cranston, Vanessa Williams and More Via Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights 2014 Spring Auction

Landing a role in an Oscar-nominated film is a difficult feat for any aspiring actor or actress, but some coaching and insider tips from top casting directors Ellen Chenoweth and Lora Kennedy might help make it easier. Both women, who have casted Oscar winning or Oscar-nominated actors, have donated exclusive meetings with the lucky winners in the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights 8th Annual Spring Auction. The auction includes more than 100 of the world's most recognizable figures spanning business, entertainment, sports, and politics and is open to bidders internationally through May 13 at

Chenoweth, who has helped cast over 75 films and television series including Inside Llewyn Davis, No Country for Old Men, Good Night and Good Luck, Meet the Parents and The Bourne Legacy, will meet with the winning bidder in New York City and offer her take on the industry. Kennedy, who is the Warner Brothers Executive Vice President, has over 30 years of experience and knows what it takes to land a role in movies like Argo, The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Departed and many more.

Other notable figures who have donated exclusive access and one-of a-kind experiences include Trip to Bountiful star Vanessa Williams, who will meet the winning bidder in Los Angeles and provide two VIP tickets to her show, as well as a two night stay at The W Hotel Hollywood, and All the Way star Bryan Cranston, who donated two tickets and a meet and greet after the show in New York City.
