FROM Tom Donahue
Unsung Casting Director The Business producer, Darby Maloney, tracks the evolution of casting directors in the business as seen through the Tom Donahue documentary Casting By.

The Compton-based company Calpipe is designing security bollards to help make public spaces safer. And novelist Kevin Kwan satirizes the “crazy rich” Asian jet set and their luxurious tastes in his latest book, “Rich People Problems.”
