Marisa Ross is responsible for so many of the great casting moments of How I Met Your Mother it makes my head spin. I mean, she's the person who first said "What about Cristin Milioti for The Mother?" That right there puts her in the hall of fame as far as I'm concerned. But more importantly, in our six years of working together, she consistently demonstrated an unmatched eye for talent, a tireless work ethic, and an acumen for sealing the deal that makes me infinitely grateful to have had Marisa Ross on our team. I highly recommend Marisa Ross for all your casting needs.

I couldn't possibly recommend Marisa Ross any higher -- she not only has amazing taste and instincts but is the hardest working casting director I've ever come across. She has gone above and beyond for me so many times even before a film or TV project of mine was officially green-lit. Now it may just be because I'm eye candy, but I've seen her work just as hard for homelier writer-producers too.
