| Really Interesting
One of the myths about Hollywood is you're either a star or a failed actor but then there's the working actor, where it's a job and you make a living (sometimes by the skin of your teeth). I was pleasantly surprised by this documentary; the stories these actors tell are oddly compelling and you get a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff, like I thought it was funny to learn that a series like Law & Order will use the same actor in different roles over the run of the show.

The interviews feel conversational, like you're just hanging out hearing war stories from these guys. I hope they make one about female actors too. That could be interesting, to see a woman's take on the business.
