Let's get started.
You have one new ride request.
Ride accepted. Let's ride.
As the sun goes down
and the lights come up on Los Angeles,
you begin to hear the true voices of the city.
It's 10:06 P.M., and this is the voice of L.A.
In 300 feet, make a right turn onto vine street.
Today what we'll be discussing
is the "big break¡± and whether an actor
can have multiple big breaks, just one,
and is there a time in our career
where we can miss our shot,
which that big break is never gonna come again.
In 300 feet, make a left turn.
In 300 feet, make a right turn onto Franklin Avenue.
You have arrived.
And thank you for tuning in with us tonight.
Stay warm out there, L.A.
- Yeah, that's me. - I'm your ride.
- James. - Nice to meet you.
J just when I thought I'd seen it all j
j you came along to rescue me j
j you read my writing on the wall j
j you found my bottle in the sea j
hey, do you want a water or some gum?
Do they always make you say that?
But in your case, uh, l mean it.
Uh, no. Thank you. I'm okay.
How long you been riding with us?
About six months.
I use it a lot between, you know, not wanting to park
and wanting a couple drinks.
Yeah, that's cool.
I'm not, like, deeply passionate about it or anything,
but it's nice to think that, you know, because of what I do,
there's less drunk drivers out there.
Not that that would be you or anything.
Well, I mean, everybody in L.A. drives drunk.
Oh, come on, not everybody.
Think about it.
Try and name at least one person you know
that hasn't made a mistake once.
- Mm. Yeah. Mm-hmm.
See what I'm saying?
- L do. I get you. - Yeah.
In 300 feet,
make a left turn onto la cienega boulevard.
- Oh, uh, take fountain. - Oh.
Mae west fan?
Uh, what... what do you mean?
Well, there's this great Mae west interview.
Uh, I think it was Johnny Carson or something.
Whoever it was said,
"what's the fastest way to get into Hollywood?"
To which she replied...
That's cool. I like that.
um, I, uh, I like your suit, by the way.
What, do you, like, uh,
moonlight as a limo driver or something?
It was, uh, for this thing that I had before this.
Oh, so you're an actor.
Mm-hmm. Unfortunately, yeah.
God, I could never be an actor.
I just... I can't take the rejection.
See, I just had to realize
that getting turned down isn't a failure.
Not getting auditions, that's failure.
So you get a lot, then?
Uh, my agents have gotten better at sending me out.
Oh, you're repped?
- Mm-hmm. - By who?
- Uh, Abrams. - Mm, you fancy, huh?
They're pretty good. I'm not... they're pretty good.
There was a dry spell, though, like six months of nothing.
- That sucks. - Yeah, it was rough.
But, um, then they kind of sent me out on this thing.
I think it was, like, the last hail Mary pass.
Inches from getting dropped, but I booked it.
Oh, what? Congrats!
- Thanks. That's so cool.
What, uh... what is it?
Uh, it's no big deal.
It's, like, a guest spot on "agents of s.H.Le.L.D."
No big deal? That's a huge fucking deal.
Congrats! That's so cool.
Thanks. It's a henchman.
You know, couple lines, and I took someone's gun.
But still, so cool.
I did start going out a lot more because of it, so...
In 300 feet, make a right turn onto fountain Avenue.
Um, you should, uh, let me know when it airs.
My roommate, Allie, is a huge marvel fan,
and she's just gonna freak her shit
when I tell her that my driver's on "agents of s.H.L.Le.L.D."
As a cool villain.
Well, I was... I was a henchman.
I haven't graduated to villain yet.
Well, I believe in you.
Continue for three-quarters of a mile.
Your destination will be on the right.
Here we are.
That was fast.
Hey, when in doubt, take fountain.
You have reached your destination.
We hope you had a safe and pleasant ride.
Hey, can I, uh, tip you or something?
We're not allowed to accept tips.
Uh, the app takes care of everything.
Right. Well, uh...
I'll be sure to give you a five-star rating, then.
Right back at you.
Wait, the... the drivers rate the passengers?
Oh, okay. So what's my rating, then?
