The odds are so against you... They make like 50 pilots. Of the 50 there are parts for you in 20, and of those 20 there are 1000 guys auditioning for those 20 parts and 10 of them go to names, and of those pilots five go to air and one survives past the first year. So to get on a show as good and as successful as CSI: Miami, to be part of the franchise, is astonishing. I feel extremely lucky.
