As long as you put in the time and effort.

I have an old friend that is a working actor in NYC. He gets cartoon/voice-over work, does Shakespeare in the park, gets gigs for various religious channels (reading from the Bible, acting out scenes, playing saints, etc...), gets extra roles in soaps, he's been in a few plays, etc...
But he still has to supplement his acting income with catering work and he has a room mate for his tiny, Manhattan apartment.
But he's happy.
Would hit. Lol Chrizer.
My cousin tried for years. The furthest he got was a bit part in Prizi's Honor and a Miller Lite commercial. At 50 he switched to management and he's much happier.
I think it's easy if you are willing to blow old dudes. If you have integrity it is probably difficult.
producers get the pretty boys young & promise a start, common place in hwood....brad pitt, tom cruise, all sucked some cock to jumpstart their careers...
Chicago has a great live theater industry. I see some really talented actors and actresses who have worked regularly for years walking out of the theater and jumping into shitty cars. I think that takes dedication to the craft but I have no idea how they can live that life.
