Tidbits: Working Actors Who Actually Work for a Living

Was surprised by the inclusion of Ryan Metcalf in the NYT write-up about people who work catering gigs to make ends meet while pursuing artistic careers. Who's Ryan Metcalf? He played Frank in Whit Stillman's 'Damsels in Distress'. Here he is with Greta Gerwig (Violet).

This from his profile:

WHY CATERING: The pay is good and I always have a job to return to. 

FAVORITE VENUE: Anything with D.J.’s, with music blasting and people having a great time dancing. 

LEAST FAVORITE: Anything with kids. It’s not that I’m anti-children. I just really don’t like swarms of them attacking me while I serve sweets or candy. It gets vicious. 

Next up, Metcalf has 'It Just Happens', a rom-com directed by Clare Halpine. With a runtime of 42 minutes this doesn't look like a theatrical release but, hopefully, things will get rolling for Ryan soon.
