It’s a lofty title to the article, but this is one of the funnest interviews I’ve done, it has a lot of great things in it. The biggest thing that people have picked up on is this section:
Wired.com: Has The Guild helped your acting career?
Day: It’s very funny. No. It’s a little frustrating. Having done this for two years, I’ve gotten used to the fact that it’s not going to cross over. Occasionally I’ll see a writer who knows about the show. I have fewer auditions now than before I started The Guild because I have less time to concentrate on my acting career. In an ideal world, people would be offering me roles or at least I’d get more appointments and so would my cast members.
I certainly didn’t want to sound whiney about it, which I hope it doesn’t come off being. It is what it is. The acting jobs I get don’t come from casting directors, they come from writers and producers calling me in directly, which isn’t that often. Oh, well. I just know I’m really happy making stuff on the internet, and hopefully can get enough jobs in the TV/Movie world every year to make my health insurance! 😀
