Storyline

With a promising career ahead of him, his beautiful girlfriend, Jennifer, and a loving family, Brian Roberts has it all...or so he thinks. But when a college professor convinces Brian to follow his dream of becoming an actor, he risks everything and heads to New York. However, Brian soon realizes that making it in show business is a lot harder than it looks and it's anyone's guess if he will become a big "movie star" or merely "the stand-in".

A must see for wanna be actors
15 July 2000 | by (TX) – See all my reviews

A sweet story with some really funny situations of trying to make it in the biz. Great for actors or family viewing. The scenes with the kid and the Negro League Baseball player were very cool. I also like the appearances by Joe Barbara of Another World and Kelly Ripa of All My Children.
