All OTS respondents are actors/actresses with many playing multiple parts. Those whose stage names you don't care for are often the same actors/actresses you do care for under a different stage name. At least g_rock is honest.

Actor... heck my whole has been one big charade. I act like I am working, I act like I give a sh*t, I act like I am listening, I act like I am interested. I am just trying to pro-long the final curtain call

I wonder if Red Skeleton took any acting classes. I liked him. He was awful convincing when playing a drunk. Was it an act, hmmm?

As costume director we used magic sizing for dramatic roles or steamy scene's.

I took acting classes every semester as an undergrad and played a few mainstage roles. I don't do any of that theatre stuff anymore, but to this day I employ my acting craft on my wife to make sure I haven't become a schizophrenic. To everyone's surprise, I keep turning up negative - barely.

That must be why the dog next door won't talk to me. Not that that matters anyway, as he's a Border Collie and would only ask questions like "What do you know about the multiple simultaneous universes?". All I'd be to say would be "what Morgan Freeman told me".

Not all telepathic dogs are psychopaths, you know.

No. And that position has been affirmed by all the actresses I've dated over the years.

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms. And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lined, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side, His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything

I am a great actor. Most people actually believe that I am sane. My spousal unit knows the truth.
