In his ongoing "view from your recession" feature (i.e. letters from suffering readers) Andrew Sullivan includes a particularly moving one from an actor.
But one section should remind us that actors in America are always living as if in a recession, aren't they?
This week I caught a couple of breaks - I booked a radio spot, which helps a little, and I was hired by the US Census, which helps a lot. The work should be flexible enough to allow me to continue to audition, while paying well enough to allow us to breathe a little easier. Unfortunately the work is also temporary.You think the census is a temp job? What do you call a four-week run?
Resolved: All actors are temps. Challenge or defend.
