Audience Reviews for That Guy... Who Was in That Thing


Fascinating and informative documentary interviewing character actors whose faces (but not names!) are known to all of us, and their experiences and struggles making it as a professional actor. I was enraptured!

It was a pretty interesting documentary about what it really is like to be a working actor in hollywood. I thought the interviews with the actors were very insightful and the overall content of the documentary was really intriguing. However the way the documentary was put together as in the editing and quality of the images was pretty bad. Sometimes the shots were out of focus and the audio was poor. The interviews themselves were pretty nice though. Just the camera work was mediocre. I wish they had actually gotten some diversity in the actors for their interviews. Literally all the actors except 1 were male, white and between the ages of 35-60. It would've been nice to see some women because I'm sure they have just as much if not more trouble finding jobs. Especially with the way film exploits women, I really would've liked to hear about some of those stories. I bet they could've found some diverse actors for the group. I mean it sounds like a bunch of actors are looking for jobs, it couldn't have been that hard to find a couple people from different ethnic backgrounds to discuss their experiences working in hollywood. But anyway, I found the film pretty interesting. I know I want to work in the industry one day, not as an actor, but still it kind of sucks to hear how complicated it is to work in hollywood. It makes me feel bad for all the actors out there trying to find work. :(
