  3. QUESTION:
    where can I look up professional auditions for actors in Houston, TX?
    I have moved from New York and know which newspapers and websites to look for them there, but no idea how to research for them here. I need auditions for theater, films, voice overs, dinner theaters, etc, non union. Any help given would be much appreciated as I need to build my resume up in this area. So far all I've been able to find are the scam artists who expect you to pay for an audition or show you the auditions if you get a membership.Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Check the various film commission sites
      Texas Film Commission http://governor.state.tx.us/film/hotline-cast
      Short Film Texas http://www.shortfilmtexas.com/castcrew-calls/
      Houston Film Commission http://www.houstonfilmcommission.com/

  4. QUESTION:
    Can anyone share their personal experience of attending the Model and Talent Expo in Dallas, TX?
    Am considering sending my daughter, but it's a huge investment of monies for us? Was it a good experience and worth the money if you attended?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know that particular expo but in general they are a huge waste of money for all but the MOST beautiful and talented people there. The problem is, you are with 500 other aspiring models and actors, and the top agents are all going to be interested in the same 10 people who stand out from the masses. The others are only contacted by expensive photo studios trying to sell portfolios, expensive schools wanting you to pay for their classes, or less than reputable agencies with upfront charges and not a strong client list

      You would be much better off taking your daughter to open calls at agencies like The Campbell Agency or Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas where she will be seen one-on-one by an agent and they'll normally tell you on the spot if she has potential or not. They are not just some of the top modeling agencies in Texas but they are also SAG and AFTRA affiliated for acting, meaning they get the casting breakdowns for film and television productions in your area. And open calls are free to attend.

      Unless you are willing to move your family at short notice to another city if an agent from another city is interested in signing your daughter it's not worth going to an expo. Most agents expect you to move within 3-4 weeks or they won't sign you. If you aren't willing to move, then just go to local agencies on your own which won't cost you anything but gas money and parking

  5. QUESTION:
    Are there any places for acting extras in Houston,Texas?
    I have been through so many fake agencies and im tired of it.If you know of any place please share,because I can't move to Cali but I know some stars stated out from local agencies.I just want to be an extra.

    • ANSWER:
      You don't need to go through an agency to be an extra
      The Houston Film Commission lists casting calls on their website http://www.houstonfilmcommission.com/ -then click Production Hotline on the top
      So does the Texas Film Commission http://governor.state.tx.us/film/hotline-cast/

  6. QUESTION:
    How do I become a movie actress?

    • ANSWER:
      While many actresses dream of winning Oscars for their performances in films, becoming a movie star takes years of training and loads of good old-fashioned luck. While some celebrities have meteoric rises to fame, most movie actresses have to work for many years to gain recognition and success

      Begin your acting training as early as possible in school or community theater programs. Focus on courses that develop your confidence as an actress, such as cold reading, improvisation and movement.

      Attend a four-year or two-year university to obtain a degree in theater or performing arts. Take electives in film or directing or both to help you gain a well-rounded view of the movie industry.

      Study the acting techniques of Sanford Meisner, Constantin Stanislavski and Stella Adler to understand great movie performances.

      Research your favorite actors and their techniques. Mimicking the greats can help you refine your acting method.

      Attend film acting courses in which your instructor records your performance. Reviewing your on-camera work can greatly increase your awareness of both bad and good movie acting habits.

      Increase your movie acting skills by honing your impulses. Ninety percent of acting is reacting, so finding natural reactions to scripted situations will increase your proficiency as an actress.

      Study everything about your character when you audition for a role. To create a total character that is believable and real, you must know who this person is, what she does for a living, her motivations for life and what she wants from the other characters she comes into contact with.

      Have professional head shots taken. These glossy 8- by 10-inch pictures should accurately represent what you look like on a great day.

      Move to Los Angeles, New York City or Vancouver to be in the heart of the movie-making industry. Smaller markets like Shreveport, Louisiana; Dallas, Texas; and Miami, Florida, also have budding film industries.

      Get a professional TV or film agent through a referral by another actor or by mailing your head shots to agencies in your area. Your agent can get you auditions with casting directors that you usually cannot land on your own.

      Audition for movie roles that your agent gets for you. If you do not have an agent, you can submit yourself for auditions on acting sites such as LA Casting or Actor's Access.

      Work in short films to gain experience. Even if they are just student films, these projects are excellent foundation work for the rest of your career.

  15. QUESTION:
    how do i get a role in a movie?
    i want to get a role in a movie. i am 13 and i looked at the acting studios in texas and they are to espensive for me any help please?
    i also dont know where i can audition in texas for acting the only thing i know of is the disney channel auditions

    • ANSWER:
      Big directors will contact agencies for actors, and to get signed with an acting agency, you need experience.
      So, as for getting into acting. You need to get experience. No-one gets perfect the first time, or stars in a huge Hollywood blockbuster, first off, unless incredibly lucky. So, work your way up. Do theatre shows in school, that is a good start. Then look at some theatre and acting opportunities outside of school, the easiest thing to look into is amateur/ community theatre. You can google for that, or ask via your local library and theatres for the contact details. Then, with a few of those under your belt you can start getting some headshot photos done, and look into approaching agents. Keep on with community theatre and short/ student films while you do it, so you have an increasingly large resume. Not all of that will be paid, but you need the experience and to show that you are active within the acting/ performing world.

      Be prepared for the massive highs, as well as the massive lows, and the times that agents will turn you away as well as the times they accept you. There are also websites out there that list castings and film/ theatre opportunities. However always remember, that you should not have to pay upfront to audition or join a casting agency. If they ask for upfront fees, they are probably a scam and not genuine.

      The best of good wishes for your future endeavours. :)

  16. QUESTION:
    how can i audition for disney channel?
    Where can i go, what do i have to do, help, and thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      SHORT ANSWER: Through your acting agent. More details:

      http://www.bizparentz.org/thebizness/disneyauditioninfo.html

      LONG ANSWER: Disney invests a lot of money in their productions and they trust that investment to trained and experienced professionals, not just anyone off the streets. Most auditions are arranged through talent agents.

      Be careful of scams. Some companies use "Disney Auditions" as bait to get people in and try to convince them to attend their classes, use their website/database, go to their showcase, or whatever (all of which cost big bucks). Most ads you hear on the radio are these type of things. And official open casting call will be listed here: http://tv.disney.go.com/disneychannel/opencall/ and as you can see, they're not having any now. And even those are not true open auditions for specific roles - they're more publicity stunts (or a chance to audition local child actors - and those would be arranged through the child's local talent agent).

      Professional acting is a business, so you're interested your parents HAVE to be involved. It involves a lot more than auditions - there are casting directors, talent agents, industry contracts, actor unions, entertainment work permits (required for minors), Coogan trust accounts (also required for minors), and many other things. If you're thinking you can show up at some open audition and get on the Disney channel, you're going to be disappointed. As I mentioned, there are a lot of scams/ripoffs out there so your parents will need to understand how things work in order to make sure people don't take advantage of you and that good decisions are made about your career. They're going to have to be the CEO of your career.

      Generally how it's done is a casting director for Disney will write a "breakdown" (a description of the role they want to cast). Often the breakdown is released to licensed talent agents and managers only. Then talent agents review the breakdowns and submit their clients for the appropriate roles and work to get them auditions.

      And you can't just hire a talent agent. Agents are a paid a percentage of what their clients make. Since they are paid only if their clients are paid, they are picky about who they take on as clients. And they can afford to be picky because there are a lot more people wanting to be actors than there are parts. So your parents would have to work with you to submit yourself to agents to see if they'd be interested in representing you.

      Now if you know the casting director for a Disney show you can try to "self-submit" (which means sending in your professional head shot and acting resume along with a cover letter directly to the casting director without an agent). Then if the casting director is interested, they'll contact you about an audition. But that's a long shot. And if you don't live in LA where filming occurs it's an even longer shot. (You would still need a CA entertainment work permit and a Coogan trust account even if you didn't live in CA in order to legally work as a minor in CA).

      Contrary to popular belief, Disney actors are not plucked from obscurity . Almost exclusively, Disney hires seasoned actors with strong professional resumes. David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place), got his first jobs through a SAG agency in Arizona at about age 9. He had a very long resume, including 3 TV series for other networks, before joining Disney. Selena Gomez had small roles on the Barney Show, Walker Texas Ranger, and SpyKidsv3D before auditioning for a Disney project . She endured at least 3 failed series attempts before landing Wizards of Waverly Place in 2006. By that time, she had been working professionally for at least 5 years. So you need to look at this as a long-time journey and not with the idea that you can just be "discovered".

      It'll take a big investment of time, effort and money for you and your parents - with no guarantee of a return on that investment. You might never make it on Disney. So if you're looking for fame, fortune, popularity, attention or things like that, this is not the way to get that. But if you really do have a passion for acting and you want to try for this - then talk to your parents and keep training and doing the research. If you're going to do it - do is smart.

  17. QUESTION:
    can somebody tell me something about jensen ackles?
    Hello i'm Eleonora from italy. in my country we watch Supernatural since one year and i would like to know something about Jensen Ackles, for example where does he live,or where is the supernatural set..or if he has a girlfriend or not. Here in italy there is no information about him. thank you and i apologize for my english!! ciao Ele

    • ANSWER:
      Jensen Ross Ackles (born March 1, 1978) is an American television actor. He is notable for his television roles as Eric Brady in Days of Our Lives, Alec/X5-494 in Dark Angel, and Jason Teague in Smallville. He currently plays Dean Winchester on the CW series Supernatural.

      Jensen was born in Dallas, Texas, to Alan Roger Ackles, an actor, and Donna Joan Shaffer. Ackles has an older brother, Joshua, and a younger sister, Mackenzie, and is of Irish, British and German ancestry. He had planned to study sports medicine at Texas Tech University and become a physical therapist but instead moved to Los Angeles to start his acting career.[1][2][3]

      After modeling on and off since the age of 4, Ackles began to concentrate on an acting career in 1996. He appeared in several guest roles on Mr. Rhodes, Sweet Valley High, and Cybill before joining the cast of the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives as Eric Brady in 1997. He won a 1998 Soap Opera Digest Award for Best Male Newcomer and went on to be nominated three times (in 1998, 1999, and 2000) for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his work on Days of Our Lives.[4]

      Ackles departed Days of Our Lives in 2000 and went on to appear in the mini-series Blonde about the life of Marilyn Monroe. He also auditioned for the role as the young Clark Kent on Smallville, but it was offered to actor Tom Welling instead.[5] After failing to land the part, he appeared in a guest role on the James Cameron television series Dark Angel on Fox in 2001 as serial killer Ben/X5-493, the "brother" of main character Max/X5-452 (played by Jessica Alba). His character died in the episode, but Ackles returned to the show as a series regular in the second season as Ben's twin, Alec/X5-494. He remained with the show until its cancellation in 2002.

      Ackles worked steadily throughout 2003. He joined the cast of the WB's hit show Dawson's Creek during the final season, playing CJ, Jen Lindley's lover. Afterward, Ackles filmed several episodes of the unaired series Still Life for Fox before it was abruptly dropped. He also had a small role in the 2004 short film The Plight of Clownana. Ackles was the producer's first choice to play Eliza Dushku's love interest on the second season of Tru Calling,[6], Ackles turned down the role, which was then offered to another actor and the character's name was changed to 'Jensen' because the producers of 'Tru Calling' liked Ackles' name. Ackles returned to Vancouver (where Dark Angel was filmed) in 2004 to become a regular on Smallville playing Assistant Football Coach Jason Teague, who was also the newest romantic interest for Lana Lang (played by Kristin Kreuk). He also had a lead role in the 2005 film Devour in which Ackles' father, actor Alan Ackles, also had a role playing the father of Ackles' character, Jake Gray.

      Most recently, Ackles joined the cast of the WB horror/drama series Supernatural in 2005, where he stars as Dean Winchester. Dean teams with his brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) to road trip across the country investigating the paranormal while searching for their missing father John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The second season was picked up by The CW in 2006 for the 2006-2007 television season. The fourth season began broadcast on September 18, 2008.[7]

      In the summer of 2006, Ackles took on the role of Priestly in the independent comedy Ten Inch Hero.[8] The film began hitting the film festival circuit in early 2007 and Ackles received high praise for his comedic timing in the role. The movie is currently waiting to find a distributor for feature film release. He also appeared on stage from June 5-10, 2007 with Lou Diamond Phillips in A Few Good Men at Casa Mañana Theatre in Fort Worth, Texas, as Lt. Daniel Kaffee. Ackles received strong praise for his work in this role, which was also his professional theatre debut.

      Jensen is set to star in the 4th Resident Evil movie. He will be taking up the role as Leon S. Kennedy.

    some suggestions please? of grndhouse movies

    • ANSWER:
      Eaten Alive (1977)
      Directed by Tobe Hooper, the amazing cast includes Neville Brand at his nastiest and most repulsive; Mel Ferrer, who seems to have lost his way; William Finley ~~ the Phantom of "Phantom of the Paradise", "The Fury", "Sisters", "The Funhouse" and "Dressed to Kill" (1980); Stuart Whitman;
      Carolyn Jones ~~ Morticia Addams of "The Addams Family" and of the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"; Marilyn Burns ~~ "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974) and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation", which co-starred Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger; Robert Englund as a backwoods stud ~~ Yes!

      IMDB synopsis:
      Judd runs the Starlight Hotel out in some sort of swampy place, and is unfortunately a few slices short of a loaf. He has a crocodile conveniently placed on the other side of the front porch railing. The croc will eat just about anything, as the hapless guests of the hotel find out soon enough. A reformed hooker, an unlucky family, and the father and sister of the hooker all suffer various rates of attrition as Judd tries to implement damage control.
      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074455/

      This is the type of movie that they try to make but "civilize" too much or never get quite~well~uncomfortable enough. I saw this several nights ago, and it's as repulsive as ever. I'm not sure whether that's a good thing, but it might be what you want.

      Let's see... What else can I suggest? OK. I'm ashamed to admit that I ever watched this:
      Evil Breed: The Legend of Samhain (2003)

      IMDB synopsis:
      Two American tourists on a romantic camping trip are brutally murdered. A few days later, during the ancient festival of Samhain, a group of American university students moves into a beautiful cottage, surrounded by a lush forest and a majestic lake They are here to learn about the rituals of the ancient Druids and other Celtic legends. But in the remains of an abandoned copper mine, lives the ancestors of an incestuous clan of cannibals. Stalked by a hulking, disfigured mutant, the students and their chaperone are in for the most harrowing time of their young lives. And keeping their heads on their necks will become their main concern.
      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0318040/

      Films in Ireland generally capture the charm of the place and people or focus on The Troubles. Then, there's "Evil Breed". YEESH! YUCK! GAG! If you want something that would have run last on the drive-in bill or in dinky theaters, this would have! Team it up with an original nutty film such as "Last House on the Left". Fortunately, I've never seen that one, but "Evil Breed" does make a bow to that notorious film in a scene I refuse to describe. Actually, "The Cell" referenced that scene, too. I was astonished that "The Cell" was so mainstream.

      Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968)
      starring Lon Chaney, Jr., Carol Ohmart (of the original "House on Haunted Hill"), Quinn Redeker, Peter Howe, Beverly Washburn (of "Old Yeller" and other Disney works), Jill Banner, Sid Haig (great character actor, especially villains!), Mantan Moreland
      IMDB synopsis:
      In a dilapidated rural mansion, the last generation of the degenerate, inbred Merrye family lives with the inherited curse of a disease that causes them to mentally regress from the age of 10 or so on as they physically develop. The family chauffeur looks out for them and covers up their indiscretions. Trouble comes when greedy distant relatives and their lawyer arrive to dispossess the family of its home.

      Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)
      IMDB synopsis:
      Three strippers seeking thrills encounter a young couple in the desert. After dispatching the boyfriend, they take the girl hostage and begin scheming on a crippled old man living with his two sons in the desert, reputedly hiding a tidy sum of cash. They become houseguests of the old man and try and seduce the sons in an attempt to locate the money, not realizing that the old man has a few sinister intentions of his own.

      Carnosaur (1993)
      starring Diane Ladd, Raphael Sbarge, Jennifer Runyon, Ned Bellamy, Clint Howard

      IMDB synopsis:
      Dr. Jane Tiptree, a brilliant geneticist who feels that Dinosaurs need never die and with government funding arranges to bring back dinosaurs using chicken eggs (because some moron says dinosaurs are giant chickens). One of her new and improved carnosaurs escapes and runs amok in a small town while his big brother is waiting to be set loose on the city. Unless the truth can be unleashed, it could be a new dawn for dinosaurs driving mammals to extinction.
      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106521/

      This definitely qualifies as grindhouse because the creators intended to beat "Jurassic Park" to the theaters. The films are a world apart as a result, with Diane Ladd's scientist coming up with a whacko theory of getting rid of human beings. "Carnosaur" shows what "Jurassic Park" doesn't in horrific detail. If you like it, check out "Carnosaur 2", which I think is better. Both have machine against dino, which alludes to "Dinosaurus!", another drive-in film though free of gore.

    I don't have an agent,where can you hire one? Please in the next 4-5 years I would love to be in the industry :(

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to become a movie actress, here are some tips:

      Hone Your Craft

      Begin your acting training as early as possible in school or community theater programs. Focus on courses that develop your confidence as an actress, such as cold reading, improvisation and movement.

      Attend a four-year or two-year university to obtain a degree in theater or performing arts. Take electives in film or directing or both to help you gain a well-rounded view of the movie industry.

      Study the acting techniques of Sanford Meisner, Constantin Stanislavski and Stella Adler to understand great movie performances.

      Research your favorite actors and their techniques. Mimicking the greats can help you refine your acting method.

      Attend film acting courses in which your instructor records your performance. Reviewing your on-camera work can greatly increase your awareness of both bad and good movie acting habits.

      Increase your movie acting skills by honing your impulses. Ninety percent of acting is reacting, so finding natural reactions to scripted situations will increase your proficiency as an actress.

      Study everything about your character when you audition for a role. To create a total character that is believable and real, you must know who this person is, what she does for a living, her motivations for life and what she wants from the other characters she comes into contact with.

      Landing Movie Roles

      Have professional head shots taken. These glossy 8- by 10-inch pictures should accurately represent what you look like on a great day.

      Move to Los Angeles, New York City or Vancouver to be in the heart of the movie-making industry. Smaller markets like Shreveport, Louisiana; Dallas, Texas; and Miami, Florida, also have budding film industries.

      Get a professional TV or film agent through a referral by another actor or by mailing your head shots to agencies in your area. Your agent can get you auditions with casting directors that you usually cannot land on your own.

      Audition for movie roles that your agent gets for you. If you do not have an agent, you can submit yourself for auditions on acting sites such as LA Casting or Actor's Access.

      Work in short films to gain experience. Even if they are just student films, these projects are excellent foundation work for the rest of your career.

  21. QUESTION:
    Movie auditions in Austin Texas?
    Auditions for a movie(no short films or local things) for summit or something like that. Something big(:

    • ANSWER:
      It's going to be difficult to land anything big without an agent and a resume. You might want to start with smaller films. Austin has lots of those.

      I've linked to a sit that lists short film projects in Texas. They have lots of casting calls.

      If you've not had acting lessons, you should consider taking some. Then get some work to list on a resume. Plays, shorts, or even student films are fine. You should not be worried about getting paid right now. You need experience to show off.

      Then get some headshots made. They don't necessarily need to be professional at this point, but they need to be well lit and very clear.

      Then approach one of the legitimate agencies in town, probably either Acclaim or Austin Models & Talent.

  22. QUESTION:
    why do people like horror remakes?
    I mean they suck, if your going to remake a movie it should either be a good idea but poorly directed, or if it bombed at the box office, not movies like 'Halloween' or 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'
    'Friday the 13th' & coming up 'Child's Play', why do you like them if you like them if you dont then tell me why you think people go watch them besides revisiting old charatars

    • ANSWER:
      theres a couple of reasons

      1. people are mindless and unaware of older films in the gen y era ...so they do not bother to watch the well thought out originals and dont have a viewing ability for more than the average slasher flick ,with gore but no substance

      2. anyone who hasnt seen the original is usually the one seeing the remake

      3. hollywood have no new ideas ....as they keep hiring the same lame a** people to write bad spoof films [think epic ,disaster , scary movie 3 and 4 - 1 and 2 be an exception as they are wayans brothers films and were good ,unlike their current bomb dance flick]

      **i will add this little note .....halloween ,while remade by the great rob zombie [ i love his films not his remakes]sadly was too much to be considered serious....it was a bad remake ......friday the 13th tried to fit components of 3 films [the first 3 friday the 13th films in the 80s]and fell way shorter than any minor expectations i had for it .......texas chainsaw however didnt ....i was impressed .....the film [in 2004] was pretty enjoyable ...it stuck to most of the original story idea [without the disabled guy ,swapping the hitcher for a female victim] ...and the casting was well picked ......so it was actually a pretty good version in the end ...i was only annoyed by the fact it claimed to have real footage in the cops going into the basement scene and thus made some mindless twits to believe it was a real story [which it really isnt its very very very loosely based on ed gein] ....and the fact they felt it neccessary to change the family of psychos name to hewwitt from sawyer , why ??

      as for the chucky ...no god no dont remake it !!! and i had heard a worse rumour of them remaking freddy without robert englund ...on some sites even having read billy bob thornton was considered to replace him [which means it is gonna be clearly awful !!!!!!]-now they have picked the dude who played roschak in watchmen ...to play freddy [still dont think he will be like englund]

  23. QUESTION:
    Am I off to a good start for being an actress?
    Okay, so I'm an aspiring actress. Yeah. The problem is that I don't know if I'm too late. I read all this stuff about actors who started as soon as they were old enough to talk. I'm an eighth grader, and I only got started my second semester of my sixth grade year. However, I do have quite a bit of experience.
    Education
    -1 semester Theatre Basics
    -2 years Theater Production
    -Short Film Class with _____ Productions in _______, Texas. (Sorry, privacy reasons)
    -2 years of Elementary Choir (Dunno if I should put that. I act and audition for musicals, and 4th and 5th grade choir is the only experience I have for that)

    Theater
    -Alicia in Wonder Tierra/Goat Head, Armadilla/ ___ Middle School
    -Women of Stone/Agatha (lead)/ ____ Middle School
    -Beauty and the Beast (Musical)/Cogsworth/ _____ Middle School
    -Pecos Bill, Slue Foot Sue, and the Wing Dang Doo (musical)/Slue Foot Sue (lead)/ ____ Middle School
    -Not So Grimm Tales/Mother (Supporting)/ ______ Middle School

    Film
    -Student Short Film

    Other:
    -UIL Competition/ Prose/ 2010
    -OAP Competition/ Women of Stone/ 2011
    -Middle School Speech Tournament/ TV Commercial Skit, Pantomime, Prose/ 2011
    -_____ Middle School Talent Showcase/ Vocal/ 2011
    -High School Speech and Debate Tournament/ Duet/ 2011 (This is a long story, but the credit is real. I'm not making it up)

    I also have thirty to forty points in the National Junior Thespian Society, was vice president and president of my school's Drama Club, and have earned several awards for my school including
    -Hon. Ment. All Star Cast OAP Competition 2011
    -Best Actress _MS Theater 2011-2012
    -Junior Thespian of the Year _MS 2011-2012

    In high school, I will be taking theater for all four years, hopefully Theater Production for 10th-12th. I'll also be talking choir all four years, hopefully working myself up the ladder of the three levels of choir.

    Am I off to a good start so far? As soon as I'm old enough to drive, I'll also be doing community theater in the summer.

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have some pretty good experience so far.
      I wouldn't worry about your age as talent doesn't have an expiration date, if you're good and have the drive to succeed you will be successful.
      The best advice I can give you is to do as many shows as possible with varying theatre companies, they offer the most valuable experience that classes just can't teach.
      Just try your best and never give up, if you want to be successful you will as long as you put the work in. Like I've already said don't worry about your age as many famous actors didn't start till later in life, Morgan Freeman and Harrison Ford spring to mind and they were A LOT older than you. When you're going for auditions another thing people look for is life experience so enjoy your life and live it to the fullest, when you're old enough get travelling and explore the world we live in go for it. This is invaluable for an actor, after all you're going to be portraying so many different people that can sometimes be no relation to who you are. I'm not suggesting that you'll meet people similar to these characters in the world, that would be ridiculous, but life experience is a very valuable asset.
      It will be a long hard journey to get where you want to though as you'll struggle financially and mentally as the work takes it toll. However seeing all that work pay off when you finally come to presenting the piece you've worked on these last few months, there can't be a better feeling in this world.

  24. QUESTION:
    How to proffessionally ask if you can send audition tape if you can not make audition?
    I really want to audition for an open casting call by Daddy Restoration which is a new campaign to raise awarness of fatherlessness across the country. They are launching commercials, music videos, short films, ect. The casting call is on a Saturday and the problem is that it is in Austin, texas and I live in Dallas. I am only 14 and my parents aren't going to bring me. The company already knows that I am intersted in auditioning because I e-mailed them headshots and my resume (which they were accepting) and they emailed me back the audition information. I was wondering if there was a way in which I can very professionally e-mail them back and say I can't make the audition but I would like to send in a video audition via e-mail if possible and to request the script from them. it is very important for me to ask this professionally because it is very unlikley that they wouid go through the trouble of sending me a script ect. Also, how can I ask (if they say yes) when they want it by. And how do I let them know that I would be able to be in Austin if they casted me and needed me to film or for a call back? Thanks for your patience with my annoying question! (: lol

    • ANSWER:
      Just by asking the question, you've already put yourself out of the running. The company will have sent audition details to many other people, most of who will probably be able to get to the audition venue - they'll pick one of them. The casting director isn't going to waste time downloading video clips.

      Besides which, if you did get offered a part, you'd have to take a parent along to the filming, and anything else involved with the production. They'd need to sign paperwork on your behalf, as you're under 18.

I was wondering if there was a way in which I can very professionally e-mail them back and say I can't make the audition but I would like to send in a video audition via e-mail if possible and to request the script from them. it is very important for me to ask this professionally because it is very unlikley that they wouid go through the trouble of sending me a script ect. Also, how can I ask (if they say yes) when they want it by. And how do I let them know that I would be able to be in Austin if they casted me and needed me to film or for a call back? Thanks for your patience with my annoying question! (: lol

    • ANSWER:
      To Whom It May Concern:
      Thank you for providing me with the audition information for the Daddy Restoration campaign. Unfortunately, a prior commitment dictates that I will be unable to attend the audition at the scheduled time. I am highly interested in this project, and would like to submit a video audition if at all possible in hopes of further involvement, at which time I will be glad to travel as necessary. It would be extremely helpful if you could provide me with a copy of the script and guidelines for video audition submissions. Thank you for your time and assistance.
      Sincerely,
      [name]

      Though, honestly, what are the odds that your parents will drive you there for the work and stay with you if they won't even go for the audition?

  27. QUESTION:
    Where can I find a bunch of Jonas Brothers quotes?
    If you already have some you can put them on here Im just making a book of JB and need some qoutes and fun stuff...

    • ANSWER:
      Kevin: Before we go onstage, we say, "Living the dream, baby, living the dream," with our entire band and crew. It really is, every minute we wake up.
      Joe: A girl followed us to the bathroom, and a guy who was there looks at Nick amd me and says, "I hate you, you suck!" We were like , "Sorry, dude." It was really funny. Nick and I were laughing.
      Kevin: I love that we get to travel all the time and not be sitting home doing nothing.
      Joe: I can go onstage and say ridiculous things. I can say funny things onstage and it's not a script.
      Nick: We aren't typical brothers who fight. We realize that it's dumb. We're working together all the time, so what's the point of being angry?
      Nick: Our mom really likes to cook for us whenever we're at home. [Jonas family dinners] are big with us. We've done that our whole life. We talk about normal stuff and about work.

      Joe: It's awesome. It's a lot of laughing and talking. Our house is definitely a loud house. We have a lot of family friends who come in a lot.
      Nick: I think everyday is like a new thing and the whole experience is amazing for us and we are happy that we are living the dream.
      Joe: Moms are sometimes the craziest! I think because they know that they really want to get their daughters to be seen by us or maybe they just want an autograph, but we've seen some moms jump in front of the bus and try to get backstage!
      Joe: It's really cool being on tour with your brothers because you kind of have a different respect for each other. You get on stage every night and you play a concert, and you can't really start arguing and throwing guitars at each other.
      Kevin: (While filming "Camp Rock.") Nick played music on his iPod dock and we had a dance party with the whole cast!
      Kevin: Growing up, we didn't really play pranks on each other, but we put Gak in one of my dad's dress shoes. He was going to work, and it was all [makes squishing noises]. We were never allowed to have Gak, Floam of any of that stuff in the house ever again.
      Nick: When Joe was younger, he would always get really embarrassed by my dad. When we would eat at Johnny Rockets, where they play old-time music, my dad would get up and start singing all the songs. I thought it was awesome. I didn't really care; I would sing with him. But Joe used to get so embarrassed.
      Joe: So here's "That's Just the Way We Roll" right here. Oh you know where it is.
      Nick: (talking to his brothers over the phone) I just cut my hair, all gone, kidding! I cut it shorter. It was getting pretty long. And finally I woke up one morning, and I was like ready to cut it. So we start fresh in the new tour, and premiering the new hair.
      Nick: Joe might be the one to dye is hair a crazy color, maybe even Kevin, but not me.
      Nick: (About the song "A Little Bit Longer) It's about my diabetes. I wrote it while we were filming Camp Rock. We've played it live a couple of times and it's overwhelming!
      Kevin: I think I heard that something like 90 percent of all pop radio stations are playing our songs. This is a testament to our fan base.
      Kevin: Our parents were ministers and they went everywhere. I was born in New Jersey, then we moved to Arizona because my dad wanted to try songwriting. That's where Joe was born, but it didn't work out there, so we moved to Texas, where Nick was born.
      Joe: (about fans) We love hearing stories about how our music has influenced or changed their lives.
      Joe: We've learned that things take time, but we have fun and work hard, and it shows in our music.
      Joe:(on their decision to remain pure until marriage and their purity rings) People are like 'no way, that's impossible'. Our parents asked us if we wanted to and we were like "yeah" so its awesome.
      Kevin: Will someone walk into a store, see our CD there and just walk by it? Or will someone stop and buy it?
      Kevin: We have a blast traveling together. We have our own family bus, so we cause mayhem in every city we go to. We just have a really good time.
      Kevin: My favorite memory ever was the year it snowed so much in New Jersey that we only had three days of school in a week. I built a pretty amazing igloo in my backyard. We filled big, square Tupperware containers with snow, packed them down and flipped them over like bricks.
      Nick: (on the song 'Games') This was actually a song that we wrote with three band memeber, and it's a really good one. In the studio we were recording it, and that whole reggae-ish type Police-feel was in there. The song was really inspired by the bad The Police. We wanted to make that song a little different from the rest of the record. We were listening to a few Police songs and we said, "Let's do it like that." So we recorded it and added that whole reggae vibe to it.
      Nick: We just recorded some demos for the next album and they're cool.
      Joe: Its gonna be the same core as 'Jonas Brothers' sound like "S.O.S", but with a little more dancing and just throwing down the beats down.
      Nick: (about meeting fans) We totally love it. When it does happen, it's a good feeling, kind of reassuring--like we're working, we're doing good.
      Joe: Every fan is special to us. I might not remember names, but I remember their faces and how awesome they are.
      Kevin: It's definitely a cautionary tale in that it tells you to know who your friends are, and who are the people you want to keep close. And at the same time don't let others infulence you in a negative way, because that can happen in anything, honestly. So we are very hard on ourselves and with everything we do; we watch it very wisely. And we have an amazing team with us, amazing people who work with us, and we get to do some amazing things.
      Kevin: There's always something you haven't achieved yet, and our goal is to do as many things possible in our career as we can.
      Nick: The one thing I notice about a fan is when she's really into our show. I like it. Even if she doesn't know all the words to the songs, she's still into it. It's kind of disappointing to see someone in the audience who just stands there. Have a good time even though you don't know the words. It's totally cool.
      Nick: When we play a show, you never have to worry that I can only see one person in the audience. I see everyone.
      Kevin: Our parents are pretty strict, but they're also very trusting. They're all about communication. If we talk to them and let them know where we're going or what we're doing, there's no problem. That's the one simple thing some kids don't do.
      Kevin: One year, my brothers and I built an igloo! It caved in the next day and turned into a dome.
      Nick: There's always a certain point on tour where one person will get sick. And then everyone'll get sick. But we'd never cancel a show.
      Joe: Girls really appreciate table manners. Not only is it important to us to respect a girl, but to respect ourselves. We want to be presented in a way that is not sloppy or anything like that.
      Nick: We really feel that it is important to be a gentleman - that's how we were raised. I find that girls really like when you are like that. I'll open a door for a girl, and she'll be like, "Oh, no one's done that for me in a really long time."
      Nick: I'll be standing at our Meet and Greets playing the air drums, and it actually makes sense in my head what I'm playing. But to everyone else, it just looks like I'm flinging my arms and spazzing out.
      Nick: Abbreviations really frustrate me. Kevin would always say 'Poor' and he meant [the song] 'Poor Unfortunate Souls.' He'd be like, "Let's play Poor." I don't know why it frustrated me, but it does. If we're talking about High School Musical, Kevin will say, "High School," and it's not 'high school,' its High School Musical. It kills me!
      Nick: (about schoolwork) We really have to apply ourselves to focus every day to get a certain amount of work done. If we have a break where we're not recording or anything we'll take advantage of that time and get work done.
      Kevin: Our fans are amazing. they'll drive across the country, stand outside until who knows when. We appreciate everything the fans do.
      Nick: We take the time to meet every single one of them if we can. We love our fans and would be nowhere without them.
      Kevin: Nick is an amazing musician. He’s really focused. He’ll keep your eyes on the prize! Joe will always make you laugh. There isn’t anything that bothers me about either of them.
      Joe: Nick is very good at sports. But his worst quality is his competitiveness. A good thing about Kevin is his sense of style. He really helps us out! But when he drives, he likes to go fast, which can be pretty scary.
      Nick: Joe is that he’s the craziest person I’ve ever met in my life, which is one of the best things about him. He’s also the craziest person I’ve ever met in my life, which is one of the worst things about him. Kevin is really good at guitar. But there’s nothing really bad about Kevin.
      Joe: We talk to fans on MySpace every single day. Sometimes, they use online lingo that we can’t understand, but my Dad’s the best when he reads them to us. He’ll say, “Yo, you guys are hot.” So we do it every day. We like talk to fans and get to know them. It’s just awesome.

      Kevin: (on how their music has changed since the first album) We really feel like we made the album of our dreams, from the drums and the bass to the guitar and the vocals. We picked the songs that we wanted to be on the record. This is an album that we really wanted to make. It’s also exciting for me because this is the fir

  28. QUESTION:
    What ever happened to james dean?

    • ANSWER:
      James Dean is the legendary hero with a legendary story; live fast and die young. For over half a century, he has captured the world with his casual style, unflinching look and rebel attitude. James Dean has defined the essence of cool and without-a-cause for generations. His star continues to shine brighter and brighter.

      James Dean was born February 8, 1931, in Marion, Indiana, to Winton and Mildred Dean. His father, a dental technician, moved the family to Los Angeles when Jimmy was five. He returned to the Midwest after his mother passed away and was raised by his aunt and uncle on their Indiana farm. After graduating from high school, he returned to California where he attended Santa Monica Junior College and UCLA. James Dean began acting with James Whitmore's acting workshop, appeared in occasional television commercials, and played several roles in films and on stage. In the winter of 1951, he took Whitmore's advice and moved to New York to pursue a serious acting career. He appeared in seven television shows, in addition to earning his living as a busboy in the theater district, before he won a small part in a Broadway play entitled See the Jaguar.

      In a letter to his family in Fairmount in 1952, he wrote:
      "I have made great strides in my craft. After months of auditioning, I am very proud to announce that I am a member of the Actors Studio. The greatest school of the theater. It houses great people like Marlon Brando, Julie Harris, Arthur Kennedy, Mildred Dunnock...Very few get into it, and it is absolutely free. It is the best thing that can happen to an actor. I am one of the youngest to belong. If I can keep this up and nothing interferes with my progress, one of these days I might be able to contribute something to the world." [He worked with Arthur Kennedy in "See the Jaguar"; he would later star with Julie Harris in "East of Eden" and Mildred Dunnock in "Padlocks," a 1954 episode of the CBS television program "Danger."] Dean continued his study at the Actors Studio, played short stints in television dramas, and returned to Broadway in "The Immoralist" (1954). This last appearance resulted in a screen test at Warner Brothers for the part of Cal Trask in the screen adaptation John Steinbeck's novel "East of Eden." He then returned to New York where he appeared in four more television dramas. After winning the role of Jim Stark in 1955's "Rebel Without A Cause," he moved to Hollywood. New Porsche

      In February, he visited his family in Fairmount with photographer Dennis Stock before returning to Los Angeles. In March, Jimmy celebrated his Eden success by purchasing his first Porsche and entered the Palm Springs Road Races. He began shooting "Rebel Without A Cause" that same month and Eden opened nationwide in April. In May, he entered the Bakersfield Race and finished shooting Rebel. He entered one more race, in Santa Barbara, before he joined the cast and crew of "Giant" in Marfa, Texas.

      James DeanJames Dean had one of the most spectacularly brief careers of any screen star. In just more than a year, and in only three films, Dean became a widely admired screen personality, a personification of the restless American youth of the mid-50's, and an embodiment of the title of one of his film "Rebel Without A Cause." En route to compete in a race in Salinas, James Dean was killed in a highway accident on September 30, 1955. James Dean was nominated for two Academy Awards, for his performances in "East of Eden" and "Giant." Although he only made three films, they were made in just over one year's time. Joe Hyams, in the James Dean biography "Little Boy Lost," sums up his career:

      ..There is no simple explanation for why he has come to mean so much to so many people today. Perhaps it is because, in his acting, he had the intuitive talent for expressing the hopes and fears that are a part of all young people... In some movie magic way, he managed to dramatize brilliantly the questions every young person in every generation must resolve.

      Never has there ever been, never will there ever be. The one, the only, James Dean.

    also is this website a scam? I don't think so, but I want to check!!!
    ALSO i am a 14 year old girl. (but I look about 13) in Western Canada. What is a better site for looking 4 this stuff?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello from Texas, USA. SAG is Screen Actors Guild, and it's the union most actors with speaking roles belong to. I used to be a member of SEG- Screen Extras Guild, which was for extras and background film extras. SEG no longer exists. A Non-SAG person would be an actor or performer not in the union.
      A variety act could be a singer, dancer, comedianne/clown, etc.
      Many of the casting sites are just in it to get your money. They'll want you to get professional photos,management, etc. You don't need a portfolio or composite photo to get work. Just watch your local newspapers, trade magazines and newspapers for when they announce "open auditions" and show up on that day. Have one photo of your head from the front (head shot) that they can keep. That's all you need. Any other questions, you can get me at indianboy_whitehawk@yahoo.com . Have a great day, and God bless. PS I've been in over 20 professional films, as a paid extra, stand-in, and almost stuntman, plus my car appeared with a stunt driver (You get paid for your car's appearance also!).

    Questions about Bella Thorne?
    1) I know she was dating someone named Garrett in 2011 but as of now (2012) does she have a boyfriend?
    2) Does she dye her hair red?
    3) How did she become famous/ how did she get her role on Disney Channel?

    • ANSWER:
      1) She's single now.
      2) Yup. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2254074/mediaindex?page=3
      http://www.latina.com/entertainment/get-bella-thorne-s-red-hair-color
      (You can see the different types of hair colors she has.)
      3) Thorne's first film appearance was an uncredited role as a sidelines fan in the 2003 film Stuck on You. She has since appeared in film and television projects including Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Entourage, The O.C. (as a younger version of Taylor Townsend), the third-last episode of October Road (as Angela Ferilli, the pre-adolescence crush of the main characters; her older brother Remy also guest-starred in the same episode as a younger Eddie Latekka), and five episodes of Dirty Sexy Money (as Margaux Darling).[4] In 2007 Thorne appeared as a young girl plagued by supernatural visions in The Seer.

      In 2008, Thorne starred alongside Christian Slater and Taylor Lautner in the short-lived drama series My Own Worst Enemy, for which she won a Young Artist's Award for her portrayal of the character Ruthy Spivey; Thorne described her Enemy casting as a major breakthrough as this was the first recurring role in her career. She then appeared in the ten-episode web series Little Monk, which depicted characters from the series Monk as children. In 2009, she filled the role of the vengeful antagonist in the horror film Forget Me Not.[5]

      In 2010, Thorne joined the cast of HBO's Big Love in its fourth season, replacing Jolean Wejbe in the role of Bill Henrickson's daughter Tancy 'Teeny' Henrickson (though she had actually auditioned for a different role). She also guest starred on Wizards of Waverly Place, as Max's girlfriend Nancy Lukey.[2] In addition, Thorne took on a supporting role in the family drama Raspberry Magic.

      Thorne enjoyed an extensive career as a child model. Since appearing in her first pictorial for a parenting magazine at the age of 6 weeks, Thorne has starred in television ad campaigns for Digital Light Processing, Publix, and KFC, and appearing in print ads for brands including Barbie, ALDO K!DS, JLO by Jennifer Lopez, Kaiya Eve Couture, LaSenza Girl, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Guess?, Target, Justice and Mudd for Kohls. She also modelled for Sears back to school.[2] In an interview with Seventeen magazine, Thorne described her appointment as the spokesperson for Texas Instruments as her big break, but admitted that she has lost much more projects than she has booked and credited the support of her family for helping her get over disappointments.

      Thorne currently co-stars on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up!, (originally titled Dance, Dance Chicago). Thorne plays CeCe Jones, a dancer with heavy ambitions for a career in the spotlight.[6] The show is a buddy comedy centered around a teen dance show (in a show-within-a-show format) co-starring Thorne and Zendaya.[7] The multi-camera series began production in Hollywood, California, in July 2010 and premiered on November 7, 2010 on Disney Channel. While she had a substantial portfolio of work in television and film, Thorne had no experience in professional dancing before being cast. After signing onto the show in October 2009, she began taking three dance classes every night. (From Wikipedia)

    How to break into show business?
    HI! I am 13 years old and its my dream to be an actress. I really don't know how to get a start in this business. To be specific I ultimately want to be in movies. I live in DWF of Texas, and if you know of any theaters,studios, or academy's I could become a part of that would really get me discovered that would be very helpful. I also hear alot that you need to get an agent, how do you get an agent? I also know that you need to build your resume, I have done dance for a long time and used to do gymnastics, what else looks good on a resume? And if you cant really answer these questions, and tips for being successful in show business will help :) Thank You!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi - the thing is, you don't 'break' in to show business, not do you 'get discovered'.

      You won't be able to get an agent until you've graduated from drama school and built up your resume.
      It's the same basic route for getting into any musical, movie, stage play, TV show - anything.
      And it all depends on whether or not you have a real talent in the first place.

      First you study it at school with all the other subjects.
      Then you get experience at school or in a drama group or in a community theatre.
      Then you get professional training at a good drama school.
      Then you get unpaid or low-paid - work experience to build up a good resume.

      The resume should include -
      The name of the drama school you attended, how long the course was, and when you graduated.
      The details of extra courses you've attended, such as stage combat, accent and voice training, dance grades, singing grades, mime, mask, etc.
      What accents you can do convincingly, what languages you speak.
      A list of stage plays you've performed in, in public, and they should include all types of play - Shakespeare, Greek tragedy, comedy, drama, farce, musicals, period drama, etc. naming where they were performed, and the director's name.
      A list of short films, student films, naming the directors.
      A list of other experience, such as commercials, educational tours, promotional work.

      You will also need -
      A good selection of professionally made headshots.
      A professionally made showreel and voicereel.
      Ideally, your own website, with all the above displayed and with links to your membership of professional organisations.

      Then you send the resume and a headshot to good agents and hope that one will agree to represent you.
      The agent then gets casting info from various producers and passes the details on to you.
      You turn up for the auditions, and compete with the hundreds of others who also turn up.
      One of you gets the job.
      Maybe
      I hope that gives you an idea of what's required - it takes a lot of very hard work, for a very long time, with no guarantee of ever getting a good role in anything. Very few actors even get to make a living at acting - they usually have a second job just to pay the bills. Make sure you have another skill so you can get a part-time or free-lance job!
      Good luck!

  34. QUESTION:
    Good Modern Horror Movies?
    I want some good horror movies like The Woman in Black and Poltergeist (1,2 and 3).

    Nothing really cheasy. I don't mind haunting movies. Please, just anything you can think of. Maybe a few from 2003 and up. Or before. From 1990 to 2012 would be nice actually.

    So, got any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      the entire Hannibal Lector series, although the first movie, Manhunter, was in the '80s.

      Saw (but the first one is the only really good one)

      28 Days Later

      The Ring, or even better the original Japanese movie, Ringu

      Insidious, enough said

      [REC] is good, MUCH better than the American version, Quarantine

      Cloverfield is kind of fun

      the MOST fun is Grindhouse

      second place for most fun is Drag Me To Hell (which is kind of like Evil Dead) OH YEAH! Army of Darkness was the '90s! Okay, so it isn't exactly horror, but almost kinda/sorta is!

      other fun non-horror movies that pretend to be horror include the latest entries in the Child's Play series, Gremlins 2, and the original movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer

      a really silly but REALLY fun one that is actually a horror movie is The Convent

      House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects are great

      my favorite teen horror movie - Scream

      speaking of Neve Campbell, The Craft is cool

      The Final Destination movies get worse and worse as they go on, but I love the signs and puzzles in them, especially the first two

      Let the Right One In (the American version, Let Me In, is fine but not quite as good)

      not very scary, but technically called a horror movie, The Interview with the Vampire is terrific

      another like it is 1992's Bram Stoker's Dracula

      1994's Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is also worth a watch

      if you can stand the first two really boring Paranormal Activity movies, the third is really good

      Hostel is pretty good, plus Barbara Nedeljakova is crazy hot in it

      The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake was way better than anything else in the series

      Steven King's The Stand turns into a fantasy movie really quick, but part one of this four part mini-series is great for any horror fan, especially the opening. His shorter horror mini-series, It, is also pretty good, and Tim Curry is perfect in it as Pennywise the clown. His mini-series version of The Shining isn't the classic piece of cinema that the original Stanley Kubrik film is, but it is much more true to King's book. Isn't Pet Semetary great? Yeah, I know, it's from '89.

      not scary at all, but a true classic - Tremors

      an incredibly underrated one from 1990 - Flatliners

      Les Pact des Lupus, The Brotherhood of the Wolf has a good story along with a great cast and cool cinematography

      I remember liking Candyman, but it's been a LONG time

      I could keep going, but I'll give someone else a chance to list some

  35. QUESTION:
    Is the movie paranormal activity reaL?
    I dont know but this is what i read online The unexpected ending of "Paranormal Activity" spiked an Internet search for "Micah Sloat dead" in the days after the film's nationwide release. Both Micah Sloat and Katie Featherston (who played 'themselves') are actors living in California, although their credit lists are short. This is sure to change since the two are now the talk of the horror-indie genre. Katie and Micah were paid just 0 when they were first cast for the low-budget film. Since the nationwide release of "Paranormal Activity," both Micah and Katie have been offered several gigs. Here's a little background on Micah and Katie:

    Katie Featherston

    Katie Featherston had just graduated from Southern Methodist University when she was cast in Oren Peli's super-low budget "Paranormal Activity." According to IMDb, Featherston is originally from Texas. She moved to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue acting. In an interview with "Backstage" on October 22, 2009, the 27-year-old Featherston said she was waiting tables before ''Paranormal Activity.'' Featherston's next project is reportedly another horror flick titled "Walking Distance."

    Micah Sloat (not dead)

    Micah Sloat was studying music when he was cast in "Paranormal Activity." Sloat, like Featherston, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment in 2005. Sloat told Jenelle Riley of "Backstage" that he worked as a computer programmer "until recently" and said the success of the film has led to auditions. When asked if he was worried about always being though of as the 'guy from Paranormal,' he said, "anything that happens from now until the end of my life is just gravy."

    • ANSWER:
      No it wasn't real, but they did posted some things on it that made it sound real, just like The blair witch Project.
      It was shot with the Shaky camera version, just like The Blair witch,Hannibale Holocaustt,Cloverfield, & Rec to make it look real & good.
      Micah Katie are still alive till this day, they were jusunknownwn actors.
      Think about it, if it was real, why would it be shown as a movie, instead of just keeping it as a docuantary?

  36. QUESTION:
    One of the fake "Millionaire" shows?
    Can anyone tell me the name of the guy who was one of the "joe millioniares" ( I think this was the show???) over in Paris. This guy was quite short, blonde and a real sweetheart and he lived in Texas and at the end he wasn't sure if he was going to get the girl he wanted and they gave him a little ranch house and they bought her to him to the ranch. What was his name and does anyone know whatever happened to him??
    OK thats is where I got confused because there is a place called tv.com and they say he is starring in wicked wicked games.

    • ANSWER:
      Joe Millionaire Season 2:
      David Smith from Texas chose Linda Kazdova

      According to a story in the Calgary Sun Times 11/24/04, "The Next Joe Millionaire David Smith and his girl Linda Kazdova are allegedly still together, although he lives in Texas and she lives in Prague. Perhaps that's why."

      I also found this article: http://zoraandrich.tripod.com/zoranewsarticle-enjoyingtheride.htm

      Febuary 7, 2004

      Bareback rider David Smith, aka reality TV's Joe Millionaire, doesn't mind the spotlight

      By Brett Hoffman

      FORT WORTH - As David Smith was competing at the Mesquite Championship Rodeo last summer, his life began taking faster jumps than any rampaging bronc he would face.

      A Fox network scout approached the tall, muscular, Stetson-wearing Smith at the weekly rodeo and informed him that the network was casting a reality TV show. Suddenly, Smith was in Southern California being interviewed for the prime-time show, The Next Joe Millionaire: An International Affair, a sequel to Joe Millionaire.

      After an elimination process, Smith chose Linda Kazdova, a brunette from the Czech Republic. Kazdova, who received 0,000 from Fox after becoming Smith's top pick, was in California this month trying to expand her modeling career.

      Smith said that he and Kazdova talk regularly but haven't developed a serious romantic relationship.

      Meanwhile, Smith has resumed his rodeo career and owns a 90-acre ranch near Austin that was purchased by Fox. He has also hired publicity managers in California as he tries to move forward in the entertainment industry.

      Jimmy Villarreal, Smith's public-relations manager in Hollywood, said he's working to get Smith small TV and movie roles such as a feature film scene of a cowboy riding a horse or an appearance on a TV comedy like Reba, which features country-western star Reba McEntire.

  37. QUESTION:
    has any1 seen this film?
    its called mum and dad
    it came out in 2008 but wasnt in the cinema..
    if you seen it what do you think?
    i thought it was proper disturbing personally, not as bad as i thought it would be though

    • ANSWER:
      Mum & Dad, wears its many influences proudly and mostly gets away with it; largely because the social milieu in which Sheil (director)sets his torture porn-inflected debut draws on some peculiarly British cultural reference points. After the briefest of set-ups we’re planted straight onto the set of the Saw movies, by way of Hostel and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, with a brief detour into Seven territory. Only, Mum & Dad is populated by a soap cast. Living in a Coronation Street house. Next to Heathrow airport.

      Down on her luck Pole, Lena (Olga Fedori), has started work at the airport. Clearly unhappy with her lot and praying that her bog cleaning duties are but a brief pit stop, she politely rebuffs Birdie (Ainsley Howard) and her mute brother Elbie’s (Toby Alexander) invite for a post work drink. But when Lena misses her bus home, the amiable but pilfering Birdie offers her a lift courtesy of ‘Dad’ (Perry Benson) if only she’ll follow her home, a short walk from the airport. Reluctantly, Lena agrees and things quickly become very nasty indeed as she’s subjected to an inversion of Hostel‘s Eastern Europe attack on the West.

      Initially it’s entirely straight and gruelling horror, but soon the sheer surreal absurdity of the situation elicits some hysterical (though incredibly dark) exchanges. This really is the blackest of black comedies. In a wonderful subversion of kitchen sink dramas and soaps, Mum and Dad emerge as the ultimate purveyors of working class family values, but with repulsively warped psycho-sexual tendencies. Sheil cleverly plays on the stock characters (and caricatures) found in so many of the mundane EastEnders-style soaps on British TV, lifting dialogue almost wholesale from these staples, and then taking their disciplinary ideals to gruesome extremes. If you don’t behave yourself, Dad will do an awful lot more than just ground you.

      A wonderfully sickening meal time sees Elbie carrying plastic bags of assorted body parts across the kitchen to dispose of them when the bags split. As blood oozes out, it’s treated as an everyday occurrence, a domestic chore; Elbie is casually chastised and the whole family have a good laugh. Shut your eyes and it could be a scene from EastEnders. There’s plenty of humour elsewhere too. Even in the bleak opening minutes Lena attempts to befriend Elbie with small talk on how his sandwich looks nice – it’s the most insipid petrol station-supplied blandness you could imagine.

      Perry Benson is superb as Dad, perfectly mixing comically banal fatherly chat with outbreaks of extreme violence. Dido Miles’s Mum too is a suitably doting counterpart, making the dynamic between the couple entertaining and strangely believable, warning the kids not to enrage Dad in a sly display of mock empathy.

      There are some problems with Mum & Dad. We never really route for Lena as person, only as the notional heroine. Her back story is of the briefest order, and that’s partly the point - she’s simply one in a string of transient immigrant workers, lost in the shadow of Heathrow’s jets. But this does make the denouement rather hollow, and more than a little underwhelming. The Heathrow setting and multitude of minimum wage workers who spend their days watching people jet off on holiday is fertile ground for the sort of social and cultural commentary that the horror genre can lend itself so well to. That more isn’t made of the situation seems a wasted opportunity. We spend almost the entire film inside the ‘family’ home creating a suitably claustrophobic atmosphere, planes overhead rubbing salt in the wound of someone who’s trapped within walking distance of not just escape from Mum and Dad, but from the whole country. This narrowing of scope would be fine if there was more meat on the bones of the story, but as it is you can’t help but feel slightly cheated at the wafer thin premise.

      The film strives to shock with moments that will induce nervous laughter, but its excesses quickly become amusing and so any scares dry up. Treat it as the twisted black comedy it so often is, however, and there’s much to enjoy, allowing you to forgive its decidedly ‘one trick pony’ execution.

  39. QUESTION:
    Has anyone seen a good movie lately?
    I'm eagerly awaiting the new movies that come out around Thanksgiving because there doesn't seem to be anything good in the theaters.... or at least there's nothing left to see... Who can recommend a good movie? Maybe even something to rent?

    • ANSWER:
      These are a few of my faves that all should be available for rent:

      1. After Hours (1985) -- "Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne) embarks on a trip to New York City's SoHo district in hopes of hooking up with a recent acquaintance, the beautiful Marcy Franklin (Rosanna Arquette). But Paul loses all his money, and just to get back home he must endure a night of kooks, psychotics, punks and an angry mob trying to kill him. The supporting cast includes Linda Fiorentino, Teri Garr, John Heard and Catherine O'Hara, with Martin Scorsese directing."

      2. Danny Deckchair (2003) - "Loopy Australian truck driver Danny (Rhys Ifans) hatches a novel way to escape his drab life after a fight with his girlfriend: He ties large helium-filled balloons to his deckchair and floats away into the sky. But a violent thunderstorm sends him hurtling out over the Outback, where he lands (as in the Wizard of Oz) in a small town where no one knows him. Meanwhile, the news media is in a frenzy about Danny's fantastic disappearance. "

      3. Under the Lighthouse Dancing (1997) -- "Six old friends -- Harry (Jack Thompson), Emma (Jacqueline McKenzie), Juliet (Zoe Bertram), Louise (Naomi Watts), David (Aden Gillett) and Garth (Philip Holder) -- spirit away to an island for a short holiday, not knowing that Harry and Emma are about to elope. As they all scramble to make the event memorable, they also learn that Emma's gravely ill, and this romantic adventure may just be her last hurrah."

      4. Beautiful Girls (1996) - "When Timothy Hutton returns to the small town he left behind, erstwhile friends, lovers and the scary thought of settling down swirl around him. A friend's unapproachable cousin (Uma Thurman) and the winsome teenager next door (Natalie Portman) afford differing glimpses of two possible futures. Director Ted Demme's smartly written, slice-of-life film offers a funny look into the male mind."

      5. Flesh + Blood (1985) - "All's fair in love and war in this swoony-but-gritty drama from filmmaker Paul Verhoeven. A band of mercenaries led by Martin (Rutger Hauer) abducts Agnes (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the daughter of the feudal lord who cheats them out of their money. In spite of the other mercenaries' complaints, Martin grows to love Agnes, who's waiting to be saved by her beloved. Co-stars Tom Burlinson and Jack Thompson."

      6. Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) - "Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell) is an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home; seems he switched identities with an impersonator years before his "death" and then missed his chance to switch back. The King teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks he's John F. Kennedy, and the two old codgers prepare to battle an evil Egyptian entity that's chosen their long-term care facility as its happy hunting grounds."

      7. Chocolat (2000) - "An iconoclastic single mother (Oscar-nominee Juliette Binoche) and her young daughter move to a village in France and open a chocolate shop -- that's open Sundays -- across the street from a church. At first, Binoche's rich, sensuous desserts scandalize the town, but soon the villagers welcome the newcomers with open arms. Judi Dench, Lena Olin and Johnny Depp co-star in this 2000 Best Picture nominee."

      8. The Count Of Monte Cristo (2002) - "A beautifully photographed rekindling of the classic Alexandre Dumas story. Edmond Dantès's (Jim Caviezel) life and plans to marry the beautiful Mercedes (Dagmara Dominczyk) are shattered when his best friend, Fernand (Guy Pearce), deceives him. After spending 13 miserable years in prison, Dantès escapes with the help of a fellow inmate (Richard Harris), cleverly insinuates himself into the French nobility and plots his revenge."

      9. Defending Your Life (1991) - "After Daniel Miller (Albert Brooks) crashes his BMW convertible into a bus, he's transported to "Judgment City," where he meets the love of his life, Julia (Meryl Streep). Unfortunately, Daniel needs to defend his life on Earth before he can ascend to heaven with Julia. He frantically attempts to explain the positive things he's accomplished, but soon realizes that Julia may be too good for him."

      10. Devil In a Blue Dress (1995) - "In this compelling neonoir set in 1948 Los Angeles, war veteran "Easy" Rawlins (Denzel Washington) is looking for work. When a stranger asks him to locate a missing woman, it sounds like a surefire way to snag some quick cash. But Rawlins gets more than he bargained for and soon becomes entangled in a murder mystery."

      Matthew McConaughey

      advertisement
      Date of Birth
      4 November 1969, Uvalde, Texas, USA

      Birth Name
      Matthew David McConaughey

      Height
      6' (1.83 m)

      Mini Biography
      The youngest son of a gas station owner, who ran an oil pipe supply business and mother - substitute school teacher, Matthew McConaughey was born in Uvalde, Texas, but grew up in Longview, Texas where he graduated from the local High School (1988). Showing little interest in his father's oil business, which his two brothers later joined, Matthew was longing for a change of scenery, and spent a year in Australia, washing dishes and shoveling chicken manure. Back to the States, he attended the University of Texas in Austin, originally wishing to be a lawyer. But, when he discovered an inspirational Og Mandino book "The Greatest Salesman in the World" before one of his final exams, he suddenly knew he had to change his major from law to film. He began his acting career in 1991, appearing in student films and commercials in Texas and directed short films as Chicano Chariots (1992). Once, in his hotel bar in Austin, he met the casting director and producer Don Phillips, who introduced him to director Richard Linklater for his next project. At first, Linklater thought Matthew was too handsome to play the role of a guy chasing high school girls in his coming-of-age drama Dazed and Confused (1993), but cast him after Matthew grew out his hair and mustache. His character was initially in three scenes but the role grew to more than 300 lines as Linklater encouraged him to do some improvisations. In 1995, he starred in The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1994), playing a mad bloodthirsty sadistic killer, opposite Renée Zellweger. Shortly thereafter moving to L.A., Matthew became a sensation with his performances in two high-profile 1996 films Lone Star (1996), where he portrayed killing suspected sheriff and in the film adaptation of John Grisham's novel A Time to Kill (1996), where he played an idealistic young lawyer opposite Sandra Bullock and Kevin Spacey. The actor was soon being hailed as one of the industry's hottest young leading man inspiring comparisons to actor Paul Newman. His following performances were Robert Zemeckis' Contact (1997) with Jodie Foster (the film was finished just before the death of the great astronomer and popularizer of space science Carl Sagan) and Steven Spielberg's Amistad (1997), a fact-based 1839 story about the rebellious African slaves. In 1998, he teamed again with Richard Linklater as one of the bank-robbing brothers in The Newton Boys (1998), set in Matthew's birthplace, Uvalde, Texas. During this time, he also wrote, directed and starred in the 20-minute short The Rebel (1998). Later, in Jonathan Mostow's U-571 (2000), McConaughey portrayed the officer Lt. Tyler in a WW II story of a daring mission of American submariners, trying to capture the Enigma cipher machine. Matthew also took a part in comedies such as The Wedding Planner (2001), opposite Jennifer Lopez and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) in which he co-starred with Kate Hudson. His most interesting role was playing Denton Van Zan, an American warrior and dragons hunter in the futuristic thriller Reign of Fire (2002), where he co-starred with another young actor, Christian Bale.

      "Be the lean horse for the long ride. I figure I am in the third round of a 15 round fight." [on career philosophy]

      (On himself) "My best quality is that I'm a big hearted person. I'm resilient, too. My worst quality is selfishness, although everyone is guilty of that to an extent. Everyone should be, I think -- you need to respect yourself."

      "Traveling is a great love of mine. I love South America and Africa. I'm your ultimate backpacker when I'm away. It's just me and my backpack. It's good for getting away from the industry."

      (On how he got started in acting) "I was about 21 when I started. I dropped out of law school to go to film school -- the idea of practicing law for my whole life seemed a little boring. I was doing more directing stuff to start with, until a student mate asked me to be in his film Dazed and Confused. A professional guy named Don Phillips spotted me and the rest is history."

      (On Hollywood) "I love it. It's silly to say that it is a world of false and stupid people. Sure there are witches and swindlers, but you can meet there many creative, talented and generous persons too. Hollywood is a pleasant place, when you are hip to the game and you enjoy it for what it is really."

  41. QUESTION:
    Is this worth it to do...also how can i raise money?
    I went to this agency and they made me audition and do lines and they liked me but i have no experience with cameras and i didn't know basic terms like "hit the spot" "slate" "copy" so they said I need classes that will just teach me those stuff. But once I get hired I will be getting paid around 10,000-30,000 per commercial.
    However the acting classes are 4 hours every week for 20 weeks and cost 00.
    They want the money paid in full up front.
    Should I do it? My parents are short on money right now. Is there anyway for me (being a 13 years old girl) can raise more money. I have to be 14 to work so I can't get a real job.
    10 points! Thanks!
    oh, it is one on one.

    • ANSWER:
      These are scam schools. I taught for John Robert Powers and Barbazon in Dallas for two years.

      They ask for huge sums of money for you to end up making thousands of dollars. They pay the teachers 20-30 per hour depending on our experience and background.

      Look into the Actors Studio
      Stella Adler Conservatory "This is were I trained for 2 years +"
      Clarence Gilliared who has been a Broadway Actor and on such series as "Matlock" and "Walker Texas Ranger" Teaches The Misner Method in LA, NY, and Texas
      You would want to get a book about the methods before you take a class and understand their formula's.
      Cliff Osmond teaches in your area, is one of the original contract actors from the studio's in Hollywood.
      Ken farmer has a book " Acting is StoryTelling"
      He also has a great book
      "So You Want to be in Commercials" by Ken Farmer and Jeremy Whelan
      Ken also teaches workshops around the country.

      If you want to act in Film. Ken's information is the most user friendly. As you will be exposed to terms and techniques for film. But experience is the best. So extra work, low budget SAG, student films (most of these are without pay, but the characters are usually in your age range)

      Talk to your school drama teacher
      Contact the Aftra/Sag office in your area
      (they will give you the skinny on these types of schools and guide you to reputable teachers and organizations)

      You could contact the Screen Extras Guild and find casting agents who you could work with. Your parent or guardian must be with you.
      Pay ranges from -250 daily.

      Look up the trade mags on line
      Stage
      Hollywood Reported
      Centerstage
      Wired
      etc. too many to remember

      Oh and 10,000 to 30,000 per commercial is what established actors are paid.
      Depending on your venue you will get a day rate as per the markets that the commercial will be shown.
      On local a commercial you can expect to make a flat fee of 500-2,500 dollars. Usually a buy out.
      Commercial print is usually a easy way to get started. Most actors work in this arena as we are not high fashioned looks.

      Good Luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    ??? LOL Read My Funny Event??? Have you Ever Met Someone Famous ?
    I've met someone famous, but not as famous as my friend Hannah. Ok so we all live in St.Louis, MO! So during this year what movie was shot at our airport!!! YEP, " Up in the Air". Ok so my friend has a twin sister and at the time they were going to Texas for a vacation. They were really rushed she told me. She decided they had some time once they went through baggage and she went to go get some iced coffee. Don't worry, the embarrassing part is coming. She gets her coffee and her sister (who for some reason doesn't like iced coffee) is right outside the Starbucks. they begin walking back to their terminal and see they have now 8 minutes. So they begin to pick up the pace or run/walk. Ok before i go on what do you think will happen. She's running with ice coffee, she's talking to her sister (Not paying attention), and their filming " Up in the Air". Ha Ha!! She doesn't pay attention and Guess who she runs into,!!! George Clooney ! Once i heard this i'm like " No way your lying, but her sister stood by her and said it really did happen" she then got a serious look on her face and i knew she wasn't joking, but i begin to laugh anyway. After she runs into him, she accidentally spills half of it on his shirt. How Freaking Embarrassing is that. She was Mortified when she saw who it was. The surprise was he wasn't too mad about it and she just kept replying how sorry she was. He reassured her that it wasn't a big deal and went to wash it out. They talked while walking back to her terminal and her parents were just as shocked and apologized for their daughters actions. He then told them it was all ok and that it was his wake up call for the day. He would say that ! LOL!. I'm still laughing about that Event. Out of all the people to run into you run into this guy. Ha Ha!! Have you ever met anyone famous?

    • ANSWER:
      Met George Clooney hanging out with Mathew McConahey in Austin Texas on 6th street. My sister goes to the same bar as they were at and i was staying with her one weekend and went out.

      their A-Holes in person...

      Met Tommy Lee Jones on 2 different occasions. First time was in 1990. He used to play on a local polo team (lives an hour away), and after a match that year i happen to be walking by him and got to talk to him for a few minutes. Met him again last year at a party my grandmother puts on that he occasionaly goes to.

      In 1982 during Christmas, I was out in California seeing cousins, and we went on the Queen Mary (cruise ship) docked there. While walking around, i stumbled accidently onto the set of "Tales of the Golden Monkey (short lived tv series)". Got to meet the entire cast and was later told (without mentioning it) by a friend that i appeared on the episode being shot.

      in 1987 while attending a private school we got to attend a celebrity rodeo in dallas, and Enos (Sonny Shroyer) from the original Dukes of Hazzards, Wilford Brimley (Cocoon), Bob Eubanks (game show host), and several other lesser remembered celebrities were there.

      So year ive met a few.

  43. QUESTION:
    I want to dance professionally but...please help!?
    I've been dancing since the age of three and a half at a very good studio in my town here in Texas. It seems as though the senior company (typically sophomores through seniors) get better and better each year. Some alummnis who started off where I started and even assisted some of my classes! They include Chris jarosz (sytycd top 10, la viva Elvis tour); Dallas blaag (professional ballet company and now my teacher for contemp.); Lauren and Lydia guerra (*twins* sytycd Vegas, jubilee school and abt ballet school in NY); Chelsea traille ("coco" in the film burlesque, sytycd top 10); tanner richens (in Kelly clarksons 'what doesn't kill you' video, and toured with dance convention and competition LADM).

    Well, I've fallen in love with the uk and found Bird College ( a dance college) and was wondering if you think it'd ever be possible for me to get there. I know you've never seen me, but the people above are now 19-21 and they graduated from school and our studio at 18. I know how few people make it, but do you think it's worth the risk?

    I told my mom about my dream of bird college and my family thinks I should choose a different major, but I can honestly say I don't want to do anything but dance. Idk what do you think? Should I follow my heart and do something I love and really really want; or should I follow my head and choose a stable career for money?

    • ANSWER:
      In order to become a professional dancer you need to be born with the body, facility and musicality that that requires. Then you need the right training. I assume that Dallas Blagg studied at the National Ballet of Canada before entering their company or some other ballet academy and did not come directly from your school into a professional ballet company. When I looked up Tanner Richens I see he trained at Edge in CA after your school and Chris Jarosz studied at SMU for a BFA in dance before having a dance career. Chelsea Traille who also guest teaches at Broadway Dance Center in NYC also trained in NYC and LA after your local school in Texas. What that tells me is that your school may give a good start but not the training required for a professional dance career as these students had to move to other training after your school. They are also very very good looking people. You would be surprised how much that plays into getting work as dancers are cast just as actors are.
      As Bird college is in the UK and their school system is very different than ours, you would have to contact them regarding requirements. Often college in the UK is sort of like the last years of high school is here and they go at 16 for 2 years before entering what they call University or Uni which is what college is here. Some colleges in the UK have both college (in the UK way) as well as University level classes and I think Bird has both. I don't know their acceptance polices for foreign students or your age. Obviously you have to audition as well. This school seems more geared toward performing arts and not just dance. Academics in the UK will expect you to know a lot about their history that we in the USA are not schooled in. This may or may not be a problem, but something you will have to consider as this is also an academic program and you need to get into the school academically as well. There are many colleges in the USA that also have similar courses of study with great reputations for turning out professional dancers and performers too. But even grads from Juilliard and NYU Tisch don't all get work as dancers. There are so few jobs. Only 10% of the best trained dancers get work and only 10% of them can make a living at it. That doesn't hold true for men as there always seems to be work for them as there are a lot less male dancers.

      This is something you will have to figure out yourself as there are no guarantees for a career in dance no matter where you study. Careers are short and injuries can end them quickly. But, if you have the fire in your belly for a dance career along with what else is required along the lines of body, facility and musicality nothing anybody says will stop you. I wish you the best of luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    College/Future career... HELP.?
    I'm looking for colleges and i saw that some colleges are REALLY expensive in my area. My future plan is to be either in Theatre or a voice actress or a film director/scriptwriter/whatever-is-related-with-film-because-i-love-film-that-much.
    So here's the problem.. Voice actress: I want to work for a company called Funimation (anime) but is alllll the way in Texas and the economy is really bad today and i can't just move all the way over there that easily, i would end up making me AND my parents dead broke.
    As for Theatre and filmmaker... How can someone make money being in theatre arts/being filmmaker??
    Please help here.

    • ANSWER:
      Although it is possible to make a living in the arts, its a difficult path and most do not make a living acting or film making. Many will leave the field because the work when it is available is hard, long and the pay is often low.

      If you are concerned about the cost of going to college than I think your find it nearly impossible to make it in the arts. Working you way through college is much easier.

      The following information is from the source listed below.

      Median hourly wages of actors were .59 in May 2008. The middle 50 percent earned between .81 and .57. Median hourly wages were .48 in performing arts companies and .72 in the motion picture and video industry. Annual wage data for actors were not available because of the wide variation in the number of hours worked by actors and the short-term nature of many jobs, which may last for 1 day or 1 week; it is extremely rare for actors to have guaranteed employment that exceeds 3 to 6 months.

      A joint agreement between the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) guarantees all unionized motion picture and television actors with speaking parts a minimum daily rate of 2 or ,713 for a 5-day week as of June 2009. Actors also receive contributions to their health and pension plans and additional compensation for reruns and foreign telecasts of the productions in which they appear.

      Some well-known actors earn well above the minimum; their salaries are many times the figures cited here, creating the false impression that all actors are highly paid. For example, of the nearly 100,000 SAG members, only about 50 might fall into this category.

      Actors and actress endure long periods of unemployment, intense competition for roles, and frequent rejections in auditions. Formal training through a university or acting conservatory is typical; however, many actors find work on the basis of their experience and talent alone. Because earnings may be erratic, many actoress supplement their incomes by holding jobs in other fields.

      Most aspiring actors participate in high school and college plays, work at college radio or television stations, or perform with local community theater groups. Local and regional theater experience may also help many young actors hone their skills. In television and film, actors and directors typically start in smaller roles or independent movie production companies and then work their way up to larger productions. Actors, regardless of their level of experience, may pursue workshop training through acting conservatories or mentoring by a drama coach.

      Actors need talent and creativity that will enable them to portray different characters. Because competition for parts is fierce, versatility and a wide range of related performance skills, such as singing, dancing, skating, juggling, acrobatics, or miming are especially useful. Actors must have poise, stage presence, the ability to affect an audience, and the ability to follow direction. Modeling experience also may be helpful. Physical appearance, such as having certain features and being the specified size and weight, often is a deciding factor in who gets a particular role.

      Some actors begin as movie extras. To become an extra, one usually must be listed by casting agencies that supply extras to the major movie studios in Hollywood. Applicants are accepted only when the number of people of a particular type on the list—for example, athletic young women, old men, or small children—falls below what is needed. In recent years, only a very small proportion of applicants have succeeded in being listed.

  47. QUESTION:
    How do I become an actress?
    I'm serious.
    I am willing to travel.
    My parents know about this.
    Is there a way to become a certified model without taking a course.
    If not where can I take a course?
    What are some good agencies for Child Modeling?
    Also, what are some good agencies in general (e.g. Elite Model Management, Ford Models, Chic Models)
    Any good acting agencies that you had in mind as well (I was thinking GO Talent Management)
    I can only reach modeling agencies in the following places:
    New York, New Jersey, Texas, California, Paris, Milan, London, Australia, the Philippines, Malaysia
    There are some local agencies I know but they are very slow in responding and it takes about a year for them to cast.
    I can act, sing dance, ice skate and model.
    All are major talents and not just extras.
    I also scored 131 on an IQ test 2 years ago and 165 (not so accurate) on an IQ test 4 months ago.

    • ANSWER:
      The steps to being an actor are the steps you take.
      Acting is usually one of three things: a Hobby, a Lifestyle and a Career.
      Already because of the three different meanings there are three different paths.
      In short, no path is the same and what worked for one person mightn't work for someone else.

      Anyone can pick Acting up as a Hobby.
      Whether it be picking up a script, grabbing yourself a camera, acting it out, filming it then uploading it to Youtube. Or seeing an audition notice in a local newspaper for an upcoming play, contacting the director, attending the audition and seeing how it goes.

      As a Lifestyle, you've decided that Acting means something more to you long term.
      Therefor it may be in your best interest to get involved with Acting Classes, Acting Schools, become a Member of a Theatre Company to generate more regular Acting Opportunities. Though how you enjoy Acting as part of your Lifestyle is up to you, same as enjoying Exercise as part of your Lifestyle.

      The website Starnow:
      http://www.starnow.com/curtisfarrell
      Provides opportunities for Actors interested in both of the above and occasional professional opportunities as well.
      For Actors in Australia I recommend against AT2 as it's very similar to Starnow - you get the same types of opportunities, though you have to pay over 0 more per year for them and they discriminate between Actors who do have an Agent and those who don't.

      If you're after Acting as a Career there are certain things inside of your control and outside of your control.
      What's inside of your control is keeping yourself ready, centered and focused - (this is usually done by keeping yourself busy with some acting opportunity whether it's paid or not). Having an Agent, representation, networking and looking for work.
      What's inside of your control are the avenues you have to generate work, what's outside of your control is the work that comes in.
      Lucky breaks are also outside of your control. You can do your best to be in the right place at the right time, though sometimes it's not a matter of what you know but who you know.

      When you're ready, here's how to Find and Apply for an Agent:
      http://www.youtube.com/user/Funstuff13613?feature=mhee#p/u/4/0nUBPVIwJTE
      It's how I got mine.

      Answers that give you a bulk ladder in how to become an actor are false.
      As anyone can become an Actor just as anyone can become a cook.
      Acting isn't the same as being famous and Acting means many different things to many different people.

      The best step for you to take, is the step that is available to you.
      Once you take that step I'm sure you will gain insight as to what you'd like to pursue and what step you'd like next to take.

      All the best :)

  49. QUESTION:
    Thoughts on Bella Thorne?
    (Home work)

    • ANSWER:
      Thorne's first film appearance was an uncredited role as a sidelines fan in the 2003 film Stuck on You. She has since appeared in film and television projects including Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Entourage, The O.C. (as a younger version of Taylor Townsend), the third-last episode of October Road (as Angela Ferilli, the pre-adolescence crush of the main characters; her older brother Remy also guest-starred in the same episode as a younger Eddie Latekka), and five episodes of Dirty Sexy Money (as Margaux Darling).[4] In 2007, Thorne appeared as a young girl plagued by supernatural visions in The Seer.
      In 2008, Thorne starred alongside Christian Slater and Taylor Lautner in the short-lived drama series My Own Worst Enemy, for which she won a Young Artist's Award for her portrayal of the character Ruthy Spivey; Thorne described her Enemy casting as a major breakthrough as this was the first recurring role in her career. She then appeared in the ten-episode web series Little Monk, which depicted characters from the series Monk as children. In 2009, she filled the role of the vengeful antagonist in the horror film Forget Me Not.[5]
      In 2010, Thorne joined the cast of HBO's Big Love in its fourth season, replacing Jolean Wejbe in the role of Bill Henrickson's daughter Tancy 'Teeny' Henrickson (though she had actually auditioned for a different role). She also guest starred on Wizards of Waverly Place, as Max's girlfriend Nancy Lukey.[1] In addition, Thorne took on a supporting role in the family drama Raspberry Magic.
      Thorne enjoyed an extensive career as a child model. Since appearing in her first pictorial for a parenting magazine at the age of 6 weeks, Thorne has starred in television ad campaigns for Digital Light Processing, Publix, and KFC, and appearing in print ads for brands including Barbie, ALDO K!DS, JLO by Jennifer Lopez, Kaiya Eve Couture, LaSenza Girl, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Guess?, Target, Justice and Mudd for Kohls. She also modelled for Sears back to school.[1] In an interview with Seventeen magazine, Thorne described her appointment as the spokesperson for Texas Instruments as her big break, but candidly admitted that she has lost much more projects than she has booked and credited the support of her family for helping her get over disappointments.
      Thorne currently co-stars on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up!, (originally titled Dance, Dance Chicago). Thorne plays Cecelia "CeCe" Jones, a dancer with heavy ambitions for a career in the spotlight.[6] The show is a buddy comedy centered around a teen dance show (in a show-within-a-show format) co-starring Thorne and Zendaya.[7] The multi-camera series began production in Hollywood, California, in July 2010 and premiered on November 7, 2010 on Disney Channel. While she had a substantial portfolio of work in television and film, Thorne had no experience in professional dancing before being cast. After signing onto the show in October 2009, she began taking three dance classes every night.[8]
      Personal life

      Originally from Pembroke Pines, Florida, Thorne has been living with her family in California since early 2006.[1] Her interests include dancing, playing soccer, spending time with her family and playing with her two dogs, a Cocker Spaniel and a wolf hybrid, six cats and a turtle.[1] She also admits to being a collector of hardcover books, listening to 80s music, and using YouTube as a research tool for getting into character. Thorne is an avid supporter of the Humane Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and The Nomad Organization, which provides education, food and medical supplies to children in Africa.[1][5]
      Thorne lost her father to a vehicle accident in 2007.[5] Thorne disclosed her father's passing in a live interview on the local television talk show "View From The Bay" in December 2008.[5]
      Thorne was diagnosed with dyslexia in second grade.[5] She is currently being home-schooled after previously attending a public school, where she had suffered peer abuse.[5] Thorne improved in her learning after attending a Sylvan Learning center and is currently reading and writing a grade ahead.[5][8][9] Thorne also talked about her dyslexia in an April 2010 interview with American Cheerleader Magazine, and explained that she overcame her dyslexia by rigorously reading everything she could find, including the labels of cereal boxes.[10][11]

      Her life story and plastic surgeries (Up to 2005)

      anna nicole smith Anna Nicole Smith was born Vicki Lynn Hogan on November 28th, 1967, in Houston, Texas. After her father abandoned her and her mother when she was a child, she was raised by her mother and aunt, commuting back and forth to each caretaker.

      At the age of 17, Anna (then Vicki) married Billy Smith, and that same year, they welcomed their son Daniel into the world. Time with Billy was short-lived and young Anna was left to care for her son alone.

      In order to pay the bills, she began working at topless bars in Houston, where she was actually more noticed for her rear than for her breasts (she did not yet have the breasts that she's famous for today). But since she was not as rail-thin as the rest of the dancers, Anna didn't work the coveted hours of topless clubs and was instead scheduled during the afternoon shift.

      Regardless, Anna (who then used several pseudonyms such as Nikki and Robin, before finally sticking to Anna Nicole) was discovered by a photographer, and quickly realized that she could use her body as a career tool. Since her childhood dream was to become the next Marilyn Monroe (her idol), Anna was inspired to make a name for herself.

      anna nicole gets plastic surgery

      After a breast enlargement (Anna insisted on having two implants inserted into each breast) and some cosmetic surgery, Anna was ready for the big time, and ironically, headed in the same direction as Marilyn Monroe. She entered the Play..boy Cover Contest, and appeared on the cover of the magazine at the age of 24. Two years later, Anna was crowned 1993's Play..mate of the Year, which, although is an honor in itself, led Anna to bigger and better things.

      Thanks to her Play..boy appearance, Guess? president Paul Marciano, also responsible for the modeling careers of Eva Herzigova, Josie Maran and Shana Zadrick, saw Anna's potential and cast her as a Guess? model.

      She made her big screen debut in the 1994 slapstick comedy, Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult, followed by an appearance in The Hudsucker Proxy, starring Tim Robbins.

      anna nicole marries j. howard marshall

      If audiences didn't catch Anna in these films, they surely heard of her questionable marriage to oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II -- 60 years her senior -- on the 27th of June 1994. Anna remained low-profile with her wheelchair-bound husband, until Marshall's death in 1995.

      In 1996, the former Play..mate filed for bankruptcy, after a former female assistant sued her for sexual harassment (she would have had to pay 0,000 US).

      Although Marshall had left Anna with an inheritance, his heirs claimed that she could not receive what he left her, accusing her of mistreating him in his last few days and not marrying him for the right reasons. She was not mentioned in any of his wills, but claimed that he offered her half of his money, to speed up her decision to marry him. After a bitter court battle between Anna and Marshall's son, E. Pierce Marshall, Anna was rewarded 0 million in 2000.

      anna nicole does reality tv

      On August 4th, 2002, the E! channel began airing its first season of The Anna Nicole Show. Although Anna had gained a considerable amount of weight, viewers tuned in to watch Anna make a fool of herself week after week.

      Before the second season started, producers of the show demanded that Anna drop some weight before shooting began, and with the help of TrimSpa, a supplement that claims to block fat from entering the body, Anna has trimmed down significantly and reportedly lost 80 pounds.

      Although Anna Nicole now looks great, she no longer has a TV audience: The Anna Nicole Show was canceled in 2004, but we're confident that she'll have other projects on her plate soon enough.
