Yeah, seem to be getting loads of work in the US.
How do you know this? Are you just going by the big Hollywood films and tv shows. And the same handful of actors that you see?
At least 80% of jobbing actors in Britain are out of work at the same time. And I'm sure the percentages in the US itself aren't much better.
Unfortunately, the economic downturn has affected everything. And work within the industry, like a lot of other things, is at an all-time low.
Will quite a few satisfy you better than most.
Even in the good times 80-90% of actors were unemployed at any one time so its probably worse than that now.
