Having tried my hand at the whole acting thing YEARS ago back in New York, I know first hand how difficult it is to land even the smallest most minuet role. Which is why I ended up being one of the many that eventually chose to do something different, and ended up doing radio. That said, I love stories of big stars who never gave up and eventually nailed that one big role propelling them into stardom. The story about Jim Carrey writing himself a 10 Million Dollar check and sticking it in his wallet when he was still a struggling performer & then eventually receiving 10 Mil for a role still gives me the feels. Take a peek at the video below and imagine what some movies would have been like had these stars decided to drop out of the biz all together!
