What’s with the Name?

For those of you scratching your heads, “peas & carrots” is a phrase that background actors often mime repeatedly to each other during a scene in which they are supposed to be engaged in conversation. Kinda catchy, huh?

About the Founder


Los Angeles based Peas & Carrots was created by Scott Schoen and is the result of his 18+ years of experience in commercial production and casting. After graduating from Duke University in 1993, Scott moved to Los Angeles and began his production career at HKM, where he was a researcher and ate a lot of free cereal. He later became a staff production manager at Biscuit Filmworks through its formative years before moving on to manage Silver Layne Studios from 2003-2009. Scott also has extensive experience running casting sessions for the likes of Shane Casting, Bad Girls Casting, Laray Mayfield, and many other casting directors.
