That Guy ... Who Was in That Thing (2012)

Directors: Ian Roumain, Michael Schwartz

Composer: Craig Stuart Garfinkle

Starring: Xander Berkeley, Bruce Davison, Craig Fairbrass, Zach Grenier, Paul Guilfoyle, Gregory Itzin, Zeljko Ivanek, Robert Joy, Stanley Kamel

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Some make it to Broadway. Some make it to Hollywood. Few make it a job.

Plot: Sixteen male actors, who are highly recognizable but not stars, detail their ups and down as they struggle to forge careers in Hollywood.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again?  No.

Fun flick.  I dig documentaries about the different aspects of movie making in Hollywood and this one's got a different angle.  It's the now-standard talking head documentary with a large cast with some of the same but mostly different things to say.  It doesn't take itself too seriously and it's fun all the way through.  I can't see this as something that warrants a repeat watch but it's cool hearing from a lot of actors whose names you probably don't know but whose faces you'll recognize instantly.  You'll find yourself frequently saying out loud, "Hey, I know that guy!" There's a sequel out that focuses on the girls.  I need to see that one, too.
