One thing great actors of the decades before multiplex blockbusters never had to contend with was tight-fitting, move-restricting superhero costumes. But nowadays it’s common for actors to wear form-fitting suits that might otherwise look ridiculous in superhero projects. But beyond just concerns of appearing silly, actors also have to face another problem — the suits often cover up parts of their face, or hamper their movements, or rob them of their acting tools in another fashion.
We all have periods where auditions slow down for one reason or another, but, do you feel like your applying for loads of roles and not getting auditions. Take a step back and assess what you are doing. What roles you are applying for, are they consistent with your character type? Are they suitable for your age range? The secret to bagging auditions is quality, not quantity. Be ruthless with yourself. Don’t be tempted to apply for anything and everything.
Idris Elba may have earned praise for roles like Beasts of No Nation, Luther, and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, but the Thor star tells The Los Angeles Times that he has not yet turned in his best acting performance. He also touches upon the great pride he takes in being cast as Roland in The Dark Tower. Elba is asked about whether or not he’s getting his due from Hollywood, considering many actors heap praise on him and many fans feel he should have been cast as James Bond.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
