After having cast music videos for John Mayer, Blink 182, Outkast, Madonna, Dwight Yoakum, Metallica, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Black Eyed Peas, Casting Director Tracy “Twinkie” Byrd has set her sights on Feature Films. And today, she is Notorious, bringing such talent as Jamal Woolard as Notorious B.I.G., Angela Basset, Derek Luke, Anthony Mackie to the Big Screen in the Fox Searchlight film “NOTORIOUS”.  She went on to cast music videos for Brett Ratner and then hit Los Angeles to learn from commercial casting goddess Megan Foley. “I can always tell the ones who are going to draw the director in. They are locking in on the camera and hypnotizing.” That goes for commercials, music videos, TV and Film!! “ She casted “STOMP THE YARD”, the biopic of Brooklyn’s son “NOTORIOUS B.I.G”, lead actor Quinton Aaron in “THE BLIND SIDE”, “STOMP THE YARD 2: Homecoming” and currently Sony Pictures “JUMPING THE BROOM” starring Laz Alonso, Paula Patton & Angela Bassett.
