Speaks for itself doesn’t it?
Dear fellow actor,
Sometimes “the industry” can get you down. It’s tough. I know. I auditioned for a beer commercial two weeks ago. In a bikini.
But you can’t always just toss a coin in the air and expect heads. Sometime you get tails. So buck up. Proud like a peacock. You don’t just give up like that. Come on, you can keep going. I know you can.
No? You’re done with acting. You never get cast? Oh, don’t worry. It takes some time. Been at it for 7 years and never got an audition? Well, it’s the effort that counts, isn’t it? You know George Clooney went two years without getting an audition. Yeah. And he’s the world’s sexiest man. What? Where did I hear that? Oh, a very reliable on-line source… Where? Oh, you know… Wikipedia.
Your agent lives where? In Abbostford? Oh. In a trailer. Oh. You’ve never actually met him? Oh. Sorry.
What about just getting your foot in the door, you know… in the background. What? They won’t even let you work as an extra? Oh. Got kicked off “Fantastic Four” for trying to grope Jessica Alba. Well, that’s understandable. But her bodyguards didn’t understand? Yes, that’s also understandable. They did what? Oh! Yes that’s a very large bruise. Still tender. How about that.
Well, at least save one headshot for the scrapbook because at $3 a pop, tossing those Rocket Repro headshots in the trash just isn’t good economics.
You’re independently wealthy? Oh well. Carry-on then.
