Truth be told, I genuinely admire actors like Ving Rhames and Vivica A. Fox. Sure it's easy to mock them for their choices, their presumed limited acting talent, and to call them C-List actors. But the fact of the matter is that, they're two very rare actors in Hollywood.

They're constantly working actors. And, in the end, that's the name of the game.

They both realized a long time ago that they were never going to make the A list of actors, or have their choices of projects, so they decided instead to hustle their asses off, and work for a living. They're a throwback to those Hollywood character actors of the Golden Age of Hollywood like, say, J. Carroll Naish (Whom I just saw again in an old film on Turner Classic Movies).

You might not know who he is, but if you've seen a film made between 1930 to early 70's, chances are that you've seen him. He was one seriously working actor in Hollywood. Occasionally, he lucked out and got a lead role, but his bread and butter was doing supporting roles, and he did a ton of them - over 220 films to his credit, up until his death in the early 1970's.

Both Rhames and Fox are getting up there too, with some 120 film and TV roles each to their credits to date. And Rhames has another 10 film projercts already in the can, in post-production or he's scheduled to start working on. And Fox has some 13 projects in the same categories, and that's not counting that Prank My Mom Lifetime reality TV show she's going to be hosting.

You've got to admire their hustle.

So with that, here's Ving in the trailer for Universal's straight-to-DVD early 2013 release, Death Race 3: Inferno, the second sequel from their 2008 sort-of-hit, Death Race. However this sequel clearly is more inspired by The Road Marrior (AKA Mad Max 2).

Judging from the trailer, it already looks 100 times better than the previous cheapo straight-to-DVD Death Race 2, with its CGI created race cars. It looks like they actually spent a little money on this thing.

    Thanks so much Sergio for showing love for these two. I have been posting the same sentiments for awhile now. You can tell these two love what they do and that's acting. At the end of the day acting is a career choice and a job. You have to continously put in more work so that you can get better at you craft, make contacts in the industry, plus build your finances so you can be more selective in certain roles. If you can't get movie roles then you should be doing TV, Stage Plays,Webseries, producing or collaborating with other people. Some of these younger actors can learn alot about work ethic and tenacity. You rarely see these two in an interviews complaining about lack of opportunities and White Hollywood and you have to respect that.
