How to Become an Award-Winning Actor: Dan Bucatinksy on Success in Hollywood

Emmy Award-winning actor Dan Bucatinsky walks listeners through his journey of being told “No” in Hollywood, how to feel successful as an actor, and creating his production company with Friends star Lisa Kudrow.  

Dan is known for his work on Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal and has a new comedy on ABC, Baker and the Beauty. His book “Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight” is a collection of funny stories about parenthood that obliterates the boundaries of gender bias.

Creating Boundaries

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the fact that, while everyone loves to talk about the end results (red carpets, accolades, etc) you can only reach those milestones if you create boundaries for yourself long before anyone else can fathom the dream within your head as being a reality. People that surround you, even ones that love you, will usually not see the visions you hold for yourself in your heart until you will them into existence... which is a lot easier said than done. This discussion is a starting point.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts. If you’ve been knocked down... get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the arena.

Fall Back on Your Training

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, I addressed one of the young actors who was in a groove, explaining that when you are in a groove, you don't need a ton of instruction... instinct carries the day and almost anything you do will turn to gold. But when you hit those inevitable walls that we all hit, you need to do what our tech advisor on Wind River, a war vet, told me he did when he was fired upon and in jeopardy of being killed: fall back on your training. That requires training even when it's not the thing you want to do.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
