For fun, I joined Southwest Casting company which sends emails when there are available parts.
There was a part in a plastic surgery ad; it paid $50 for someone with an attractive face and nose, a flat stomach, and big boobs.
There was a muscular dystrophy documentary that needed "friends" (15 people, ages 21 - 40) to dance in a bar around a woman in a wheelchair.
A non-alcoholic beer commercial needed "Fun attractive" twenty to thirty-somethings in tight tshirts to stand beside Harleys at a biker bar and rave about "good taste and times."
A dark comedy called Pisces looked interesting, as did Our Town since I felt right for the part of Mrs. Julia Gibbs, an "overworked, overwrought, doctor's wife", or maybe the perfect part is in the common crowd scene, requiring only the ability to act average and oblivious to being watched by cameras and fidgety people wearing headsets.
It isn't the parts I really want, but to know that lifestyle, what goes on behind the scenes, how often actors pretend to be friends, that a drug is a miracle cure or a hemorrhoid cream can change lives.
