Wayne Gasser

With over 30 years in the entertainment industry, Wayne David Gasser brings his experience as a Personal Manager, Acting Coach and most recently Casting Director to the table, which he applies daily when representing his talent. Wayne has placed clients on such shows at “The Blacklist,” “Blindspot,” “Most Wanted: FBI” and a slew of other primetime shows and feature films. Although based in New York City, Wayne deals with Industry and Talent on both coasts.

Starting out in the mail room at WNAC-TV (CBS) while attending college in Boston, he soon worked his way up to Production Assistant on their morning talk show, acting as a liaison between the CBS stars and the local station when they were in Boston promoting their shows. At 19 years old he was greeting such guests as Lucille Ball, Beatrice Arthur, Valerie Harper, Bob Newhart, Dan Rather as well as Woodward & Bernstein, Vincent Price and Jimmy Hoffa! After graduating college, he returned to New York City and began working as a freelance publicist with rising young actor Kevin Bacon and Margaret Hamilton ('Wicked Witch of the West' in "The Wizard of Oz"). Shortly thereafter, Wayne moved to Los Angeles where he began representing stars from "Capitol," "The Young & the Restless," "Santa Barbara," "Days of Our Lives," "General Hospital," and actors Sonny Shroyer ('Enos' from "Dukes of Hazzard") and Anthony Perkins ('Norman Bates' from the film classic "Psycho").

After 13 years, Wayne returned to his roots and New York City where he continues Personal Management for a select group of actors and also teaches here:
