He began his professional casting career at the unlikely age of 16 when he decided to cast himself as a teenage entrepreneur by launching a cutting-edge extras casting company in Portland, which quickly became the industry's most successful extras resources in the NW. A few short years later, after working on major blockbuster films and countless commercial projects, he formed Danny Stoltz Casting, a full service principal casting company. He quickly earned a solid reputation for providing exceptional services while artistically matching great actors and real people to the spots he was responsible for casting. By age 21, he was considered the "go to" guy for casting in Oregon and had established himself as a first-class, accredited casting director with the ability to think outside the box and successfully facilitate the entire casting process.

In 2002, at age 25 with over 700 commercial credits to his name, his career was propelled again as he embraced the opportunity to cast the leads and day players for Gus Van Sant's controversial film, "Elephant". The details of the story were developed from the casting that Stoltz worked vigorously on for 6 months. The film won best picture at the Cannes Film Festival and gained Stoltz national recognition as a creative casting director with an instinctive ability to discover new talent. He then cast a wide range of character actors in the movie phenomenon "What the Bleep Do We Know", an acclaimed film about quantum physics that went on to win many awards internationally. Next, he cast the NW day players for the DreamWorks feature, "The Ring 2" followed by a slew of independent films, continuous commercial work and a range of hit reality TV shows including, "The Apprentice", "Bad Girls", "Adventures in Love", "Endurance" as well as many others.
