Deadline Hollywood: A sobering look at the “new normal” where roles once billed as “Guest Stars” are now day players. If actors don’t have television to pay the bills, where will they make up the difference?
“Hollywood has become like a third world country,” said veteran actor Kent McCord, SAG’s former first vice president and national recording secretary. “There are a few actors who are very rich, and a large base who can’t make a living. They’re turning the business into something where you have the stars, and the rest are hobbyists.”
