Bit parts. You go to acting school, work at Denny's waiting for your agent to call, then find yourself in very small part. I'm not talking about being an extra, but the a very tiny yet significant part. How many of these people call up their parents and neighbors and brag about the part they were cast in, or are they just too embarrassed? A couple of examples: 1. CSI. Think about how many people have to play a corpse? 2. Sophie's mom on HBOs Carnivale? Essentially her role is to act like a corpse, but with her eyes open. What's probably even more sad are the people that are "featured" in the deleted scenes on a DVD. They actually had lines and were able to show their skills, only to have them permanently filed under Deleted Scenes. Can you think of any other notable examples?
