Actor's deal with the uncertainty of the business and the lopsided amount of "no"s we hear in different ways. Mine is usually to focus on the task at hand, to enjoy the work and just do the scene/audition in front of me with no thoughts or expectations beyond doing it well. That can sometimes lead to funny exchanges like: Manager: "Guess who booked 'Oceans'?... Me: Um, I did? What is that?
I'd auditioned for it some weeks before, not registered what the title meant, and didn't give it a second thought until this call.
I get to be a man in the upcoming and amazing female-reboot/continuation of the "Ocean's" films. I'm incredibly excited to be in such a high-profile piece with such mind-blowingly talented humans. I'll post more details when it's time.
