(On his advice to aspiring actors) Be good to you`re fellow players: We are all in this together. Whether you are working, or in-between jobs, you need all the help you can get. I just read an interview with a very famous director who decided to slum a bit and try the other end of the camera. He reported that this acting thing is a stroll in the park and he was mystified as to what the big deal is. I`ve got a hint for him: What that little experiment missed is the part where you go 0 for 22 in auditions, spend 11 months wondering where the next paycheck is coming from, your mother suddenly has health problems that tap half of your cash reserves, your summer love from Shakespeare Under The Stars lands a network series, and you mentor (and probably the best actor you have ever seen) gives it up because he can`t get cast and has to feed the family. Factor that stuff in and then come tell me how easy it is. Try to remember that your contemporaries now will be the same 30 years from now. You need them. Treat them like family.
