If you're using AE 3D layers, and want a shadow cast in 3D, you need lights. And you have to have the lights set to create shadows. And you have to have a layer set to cast shadows, and the other layer has to be set to recieve shadows.

Or, if 2D, you could select your layer and choose Layer > Layer Styles > Drop Shadows

Or you could choose Effect > Perspective Drop Shadow
