Storyline

A film director (Adam Rifkin) decides to chart the course of a young actor (Tony Markes) as he tries to make it in Hollywood. Attempts to get him noticed and placed in roles meet with failure. A guest role on "Baywatch" ends when he steps on a stingray and has to be hospitalized. The filmmaker's frustration is multiplied by the fact that the original actor (David Andriole) he had selected and who had to drop out of the project because of a studio commitment, meets success and constantly crops up in roles where the second actor is struggling for his break.

A great eye opener for aspiring film actors
24 October 2000 | by movieguy-52See all my reviews

This movie was a great eye opener for aspiring film actors like myself. It's the actual story of an unknown actor, who with the help of a Hollywood Director, Adam Rifken, attempts to turn him into a Hollywood star. This film takes you deep into the process of what it takes to make it in Hollywood and how far some actors are willing to go to succeed.
