Leonard And Penny Season 7 *spoiler* Discussion Thread in Season 7 Posted December 27, 2013 That statement is is pure bullshit. It is not easy to get commercial work. If you are SAG, you are not allowed, by SAG rules, to work on non-SAG projects. So those non-SAG commercials that you say are easy to get, are only open to non-SAG actors, and there are a lot of those non-SAG actors, cutting down your chances. Not to mention, that if you are SAG, the average SAG actor makes 20k or so a year. Kaley makes roughly 8 million a year, that's 400 other actors making zero for the year, to get that average. If you include Johnny and Jim, you now have 1200 actors making zero. Does that sound easy to you? You may have almost gotten a commercial one time, simply because you happened to be similar to what they were looking for, for that particular commercial. Doesn't mean you would fit any other commercials, or fit the picture the director or producer has for any other commercials. Seconded. I know first hand because I've been out in California for several years now and going on auditions. Getting commercial work is hard as hell, even the non-union work.
