If you’re thinking about pursuing an acting career, or already are, here’s a Hollywood auditioning primer, from Ryan Gosling.
In the late 90s I was offered small roles in Sudden Impact with Jean-Claude van Damme and Desperate Measures starring Michael Keaton and Andy Garcia. I didn’t have to audition, which was very unusual. Sad to say, but the timing for both was off, and I was on vacation during the filming schedule. Grow a v-e-r-y thick skin, learn to change clothes in your ride, and best of luck!
