Actually...wait, what?

Basically, he's saying to go in for a job interview thinking about how you'd do the job, and let go of the flop-sweat of desperation that comes purely from needing to find work.  Makes sense to me.

IdBeCrazyIf: Great advice actually


No kidding, refreshingly straightforward as well.

Excellent advice.  Just like that creepy feeling you get when going on a date with a lonely person, people can smell desperation during the audition.  Nothing is more powerful than accepting and projecting indifference instead of panic.

Every job I've interviewed for where I really didn't give a shiat if I got it or not, I got.  Every job I REALLY wanted slipped away.  Worked out in the end, but until I accepted basically what Cranston said, I was angry.

usually everything has to be so jokey or schticky, it was nice to see that instead. Thanks subweiser

Always make sure that if you audition for the part of a ________, that you confirm with the casting director that they understand that you're not really a ________, but that you will use your imagination and your acting skills to *pretend* that you're a _________.

And be sure to *memorize* the words written down in the script. Because if you use the script during the filming, it ruins the illusion.

Is it:

"you're never gonna make it"

"after you've studied and practiced and trained for years... it's 100% luck"

"no one makes it. It won't be you"

/ok his advice was actually pretty cool
//but misleading

Nice Mata Ortiz pot in the background there.

Also, good advice for anything, really. If a decision is out of your hands, walk away.

This I get now.  Got burned last week on some other thread.

He seems like a cool guy, but he could have added, 'and when you get to my level, you don't really need to audition, they just come breaking (no pun) down your door begging for you to come work for them for a dump truck full of cash.  It's really that simple, good luck', because it's sad, but true.

Hey, he's proven that he has range, and he's earned his (impressive) resume. I bet he's a great guy to work with, too. Why add what people already know?

/But yeah, I agree with you
//He's just one of the ones who's earned it
///Y'know?

He seems to be saying that when you go to an interview don't try to do it in such a way that you will be hired, just do it however you want and they can f*ck themselves if they don't want to hire you for it.

Better advice would be: don't be nervous and don't brown-nose, just act like you've had that exact job before and will again in the future.

yes, but i thought that HE is the one who knocks...

yeah, there's nothing earth-shattering about adopting the attitude of Morgan Freeman.

it's not that it's bad advice, it just comes across as very insulting and those who are enamored by it still need to learn how to breathe through their noses.

Similar to the advice given more than once in this movie

I think that this is great advise for any creative person. Concentrate on your craft.

Did he get the Preparation H commercial gig right after his epiphany?
 
2013-10-03 08:54:59 PM
Not a fan of him but that's good advice (and not just in the acting world)
