Lauter was a contributor to the recent HBO documentary "Casting By," which focused on the career of the influential casting director Marion Dougherty (1923-2011). As an aspiring actor in the early 1960s, Lauter could never get in to see her about potential jobs. So he came up with the bright idea of showing up at her office dressed as a postal worker. He pretended he had mail for which her signature was needed. When she appeared, he immediately confessed what he was up to, which impressed her. She didn't forget him, and the rest is history...
