Actors! Remember it is your responsibility to make the commitment to become a great actor. You should be constantly taking acting classes, and this is where the Chicago Motion Picture Studios' Acting School comes into play...

Seriously, you should question your commitment on a regular basis. Remember this job isn't for everyone, don't force it if you don't LOVE it. Your parents didn't tell you to be an actor they said to be a Doctor or Lawyer! Since your not listening to them in the first place make them proud of your decision by becoming successful! So commit and don't quit! "Break-A-Leg"

In Chicago you can be multi-listed with many agents. Since Chicago is more of a "commercial" oriented town rather then a "Film" town, that plays to the advantage of the actor. Sometimes you could be submitted by more than one agent, which means, the client or casting director may have a better chance to remember you!


TONY DE GUIDE started as a fitness model, then later signed with a talent agent. Tony attended a few local auditions and landed a role in a national commercial. From there Tony attended the Second City Training Center and a bunch of other acting schools. During this time he starred in plays at Victory Gardens Theater and Elmhurst College.

After moving to LA Tony interned at a casting agency while going to film school where he learned how to direct movies, music videos and commercials. Since then Tony has been cast in a few speaking roles in films like Groundhog Day, Only the Lonely, and his latest film as actor and director Voices from the Graves.
