Kline Calls Film Industry a 'Circus'

Actor Kevin Kline calls the film industry a circus.

To succeed as an actor, you need to play along with the circus part, he says, but that opens the way to exploring the art form of acting.

"It's nice to be able to get the big paycheck, so I can afford to do the theater, where you make no money at all. It's a juggling act. That's the American way; we all do a little whoring in order to be faithful to our muse," Kline said in an interview published Thursday in the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

Kline, 55, currently appears in "The Emperor's Club," about a prep-school teacher's relationship with a troublesome teen.
