Hollywood, California: Infamous Casting Couch

The proverbial Hollywood Casting Couch (in stone) is a photo op fixture on a deck of a shopping center. The Hollywood sign is visible, in the distance, above the couch, which visitors can sit on. The couch is scheduled to be removed by 2022.

Famous Casting Couch

The proverbial Hollywood Casting Couch has been recreated on the north facing deck of the Hollywood and Highland Shopping Center in Hollywood. Facing the dramatic backdrop of the Hollywood Hills and the famous Hollywood sign, this makes a memorable souvenir photo. Under the couch is a mosaic with the confession of "The Road to Hollywood, How Some Of Us Got Here" written on it.
