The name of this company had developed into a jargon term denoting a generic or a stereotypical location where someone could travel to and cast a specific character type for a specific type of film or television production. The term, Central Casting is also in widespread use outside of the film industry.
In April 2006 Central Casting officially opened its New York division.
Central Casting is also the name of a series of role-playing supplements originally published about 1990 by Task Force Games. These supplements were aimed at "fleshing out" characters to be used during role-playing games by providing randomly generated background information for the characters.
