There are tons of Hollywood roles cast each day and each role falls into a different category. The way the role is categorized is based on how much exposure and how many lines the character will get. Additionally, the category of the role will also determine how much the actor is compensated. Let's explore the various types of roles and how they differ.

Featured role
A featured role is a small speaking role. This is usually the role of the taxi driver, waitress, mailman, etc. who doesn't have a substantial part in the plot and generally only has one or two lines and appears in one scene.

Guest-starring role
A guest-star generally appears on a television show for one or a few episodes and has a few lines. Often agents will try to negotiate that a featured role be listed as a guest-starring role, especially if the talent has appeared in other television shows or feature films.

Co-starring role
A co-starring role is more significant than a guest star, but doesn't have the same weight of a starring role.

Supporting role
I bet you're familiar with this term. A supporting role can range from one line to several lengthy scenes. Usually if the actor only has one line, they are designated as a supporting actor or actress based on their celebrity status or experience.

Recurring role
A recurring role is generally billed as a guest-starring role. However the term refers to an actor who is not a member of the cast but whose character appears for several episodes. This is a great opportunity for an actor, as many recurring roles have led to starring roles in the following season, or a starring role on a show on the same network.

Starring role
The starring role is the leading actor, or main character in a production. And I'm sure this is what you're all aiming for!
