It takes a vast skill set of acting abilities, years of devotion and a little bit of luck to become a professional actor. Once someone becomes a working actor, it's not all glamorous including the long hours. Just ask Mark Boyett. Well, Matthew asks for you in this podcast episode from the WBGO Media Workshop.

Mark is a theater actor and has made many movies including his latest, The Tender Bar with Ben Affleck, directed by George Clooney. Mark reveals how he immerses himself in a role including preparation, understanding and relating to the character, and having to act on his knees as Lord Farquaad in Shrek.
