An actor limited to stereotypical roles because of his ethnicity, dreams of making it big as a highly respected performer. As he makes his rounds, the film takes a satiric look at African American actors in Hollywood.
When Bobby is first sitting down while he waits to read for the part of Jimmy at the beginning of the film, the head shot photo just behind him shows three women (with possibly a fourth, which is obscured by his head.) After the talk with the other actor sitting next to him (immediately after he tells him "Don't sell out, brother. Don't be a butler or a slave") the picture immediately changes to one of his grandmother, likely representing the sudden pull of his conscience in reading for this type of role.
The Winky Dinky Ho Cake... hoes gotta eat too.
Just right before Bobby gets the call for a callback, the car in the shot outside was preparing to reverse out to the street. The shot looks like a leftover shot used for the intro sequence.
