      Known for having a keen eye for new talent as a notable Hollywood casting director, Risa Bramon Garcia made her feature directing debut with the 1999 comedy "200 Cigarettes." Previously, Bramon Garcia (along with casting partner Billy Hopkins) landed Madonna her breakthrough film role in 1985's "Desperately Seeking Susan." The duo were also responsible for getting Macaulay Culkin a substantial part in "Uncle Buck" (1989) and cast Sandra Bullock in her star-making turn in "Speed" (1994). Bramon Garcia worked extensively with Oliver Stone in casting several of his films, a professional relationship that resulted in her serving as associate producer as well as casting director for "Heaven & Earth" (1993) and the following year's "Natural Born Killers." On television, Bramon Garcia was responsible for the casting of the Connors in the popular ABC sitcom "Roseanne" (1988-1997), as well as several other series and specials.
