These guys want to work, but there are limited jobs out there. If you are going to hire someone, is the first guy on your call sheet going to be the one who's been busy dissing his old bosses and their creative choices, or who had issues getting to work on time in the third season of his first big show?

Anger makes good press and may make you a draw on the convention circuit since people are going to want to hear what you're going to reveal "next"... but will it get you a job?
It's probably true that in Hollywood you create your own opportunities by auditioning, networking and kissing ass on occassion. Wang's honesty might make him popular on the convention circuit (and has earned him my respect) but it could very well have hurt his carreer. Still, how many roles are written for 44 year old Asian guys?

I'm actually more surprised to learn how critical the fans are of him. Some her speak of him as if he was some kind of uncontrolable loose cannon and ingrateful stuck up party boy. The fact is that most fans here when thinking of the shows production would rather have this idylic happy happy joy joy fantasy picture in their minds than the truth. You attack him because he's being honest and it just isn't what you want to hear. "The set was fun because the guys goofed around and still have dinner once a month!" The fact is that a large part of the cast have voiced criticisms either during or after production of the show. Wang might be one of the more vocal actors, but Beltran, Mulgrew and now Ryan followed suit.
