Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts are Paper Clips

I want to be a succesfull actor, so in a sense I'm talking about myself. But here's something I've been thinking about for a long time now. In life, what things are the most valuable to other people? Things like gold, silver, baseball cards, etc etc. What do all of those things have in common that makes them so valuable and wanted? They are all extremely rare. The more precious and hard to find something is, the more people will pay and or do to obtain it.

That's great Ricky, what the hell does that have to do with acting? Well, I've always found it ironic that the most successful and famous actors (man or woman) are those that are the most well known and often seen. They get the exact opposite treatment as something that is really rare and barely seen. The more people that see Tom Cruise in a movie, the more famous and higher valued he becomes. $25 million a picture because everyone knows who he is. So what about me? No one knows me yet. Hardly. Therefore in following the rules of the rest of the world I should be more valuable and sought after than Tom Cruise or Julia Roberts. Would you even bat an eye if I offered you something like a paper clip? No, because paper clips are everywhere. But if I offered you a baseball card from 1890, you'd take it in a heartbeat because of how valuable and rare it is.

I'm the anti-paper clip. I'm the 1890's baseball card.
