I Was Wrong About Trump

Andy Schmookler

Once Trump had the Republican Party's nomination in hand, everyone understood that the next phase in his rise had to be bringing that Party together behind his leadership. Some of that unification wasn't going to be easy -- not after the ways he'd defeated his rivals (like Little Marco and Lyin' Ted). But that was the job that needed doing.

Why Voiceovers Can Book Jobs From Just About Anywhere

Kate McClanaghan | Posted 04.13.2016 | Arts
Kate McClanaghan

The beauty of being in voiceover today over any other time in history is the fact that every session is as near as a simple "patch". By that I mean a studio in one region of the country -- say Austin, Texas -- can easily patch (connect remotely) with another studio, say, in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

"How To Get Away With Murder" Star, Aja Naomi King, Has The Best Advice For Young Actors

Quora | Posted 02.12.2016 | Entertainment
Quora

The advice that I was always given when asking for advice about acting was that if I could imagine myself doing anything else, anything else at all, then go do that. It is a brutal industry filled with so much rejection and heartache, you constantly go out of your way to figure out what someone else wants you to be in an audition room and still be authentic to your own instincts as an artist, and it feels like you're completely in the dark.

A study found that the percentage of Hispanic actors onscreen increased from 6.6 percent before the merger to 7.3 percent afterward. That's good news, right?
