Throw a rock in this town and you will hit an actor. Unless you need one for your project and then somehow they all disappear.
I cast more than I need because I know I will lose them. And then I lose more than I expected – and I have to expand my search, beyond my first tier.
That’s when I start looking around me whenever I find myself, wondering, “Are you an actor? Might you be free tomorrow?” And no one looks like they are. I see marketing execs and social media managers and salespeople and graphic designers – but I can’t spot any actors.
Normally, they drive me crazy by appearing to be everywhere. Today they must all be at auditions.
