This should be mandatory viewing for any young person that wants to bean actor, and thinks that he/she can be the next Tom Cruise or JuliaRoberts by just getting on a bus and moving to Los Angeles.
The candor and honesty of the actors in this documentary reveal thereality of what it takes, and what it's like to endure in this line ofbusiness over a lifetime.
They are like the plumbers and electricians of the acting world. We maynot know their names, but they have certainly made a better world forall of us in the world of entertainment.
Their common thread: the ability to withstand hardship and adversity,and still have a sense of humor...

I really really liked it, but I thought it was bizarre that there wasonly one guy of color, Rick Worthy (who was my fave, BTW). I get whythey didn't include women, perhaps...different can of worms/maybethey're working on the female version... But, really? Only one guy ofcolor? I mean...what about Frankie Faison? Freddy Rodriguez? GiancarloEsposito? Graham Greene? James Hong? Iqbal Theba? Again, don't get mewrong. I really liked it. It's not even a complaint so much assomething that just struck me as odd.
And, hey, I will watch all the sequels they want to make..."That ChickFrom...," "More of Those Guys..." (with a little more ethnic varietymixed in), "That Kid from That Show,"..."That Dog From..." (ok, maybethat one's taking it a little far...haha!) Anyway, I really did enjoyit. What a lovely group of guys with wonderful stories. It made me likethem even more...however, I still only know a couple of their names.Haha! As a few of them said, though, that's really the perfect place tobe. :)

It was amazing to see all these wonderful actors, that I've seen ahundred times before on T.V. and movies. While I might not have knowneveryone of there names I knew who they were and what impact that theyhave all made on the industry as a whole. For without these actors themovies/TV shows wouldn't be what they are and for that I thank them allfor all there hard work and dedication they have given this industry.So next time you are watching a show and wonder who the non-maincharacters are take a moment and look them up and be thankful they aresuch awesome and talented people :) I cant wait to see what the futureholds for all of these guys, but I hope they are around for a very longtime.
Documentary about sixteen actors who detail their ups and downs as they struggle to forge careers in Hollywood. They've played cops, lawyers, bosses, best friends, psychopaths, politicians and everything in between. Now you'll know who they are.
