Synopsis >

Mary Birdong (Reno 911, The Descendants) in a heartfelt PSA aimed at non-celeb TV actors battling PSS (Pilot Season  Syndrome). There IS Hope.  And you DON'T have to do this alone.  I mean... you kinda DO have to do it alone.  But there will be lots and lots of equally alone, narcissistic fame-vampires there with you.  Being just as alone as you are.  In your alone-ness. Ever wonder what it's like to be type-cast? It's probably awesome for Charlize Theron or Rachel Weisz-- they mostly get roles described as "beautiful" or "hauntingly vulnerable." But the roles that comic actresses like Birdsong get seen for usually require a slightly different vocab. This video contains a small sampling of those character descriptions. These are not made up. These are ACTUAL roles that she and countless other "character actors" have auditioned for.
