IMDB also supplies a description for the film project – Carved from a lifetime of experience that runs the gamut from incarceration to liberation, Dog Eat Dog is the story of three men who are all out of prison and now have the task of adapting themselves to civilian life. The California three strikes law looms over them, but what the hell, they’re going to do it, and they’re going to do it their way. Troy, an aloof mastermind, seeks an uncomplicated, clean life but cannot get away from his hatred for the system. Diesel is on the mob’s payroll and his interest in his suburban home and his nagging wife is waning.

The loose cannon of the trio, Mad Dog, is possessed by true demons within that simply lead him from the situation to the next. One more hit, one more jackpot, and they’ll all be satisfied. Troy constructs the perfect crime and they pull it off, but in the aftermath, they keep finding the law surrounding them wherever they go. – IMDB

    OPA again?
    I refuse to join them!
    My last agent in Honolulu didn’t require me to pay to be a part of their group of performers.

    I’ll bet all her people got the extra parts for background people that do nothing but be part of the background, like walking wondering fools.

    That’s not the way you run a ligit casting business, but the dumb locals in Ohio are too stupid to know that.

    In the real world, you have an agent, when they send you to work, then they get paid and you don’t do any of that!

    They may be skimming off the top, but I didn’t know it.

    I came back to Cleveland in the 80s, with a union card, but no one would talk to me, maybe there was no one to talk to besides the modeling agencies.
