Thirty supporting actor and actress contenders in comedy and drama gathered for a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot for The Hollywood Reporter's cameras April 30 on the Fox lot. Read on for revelations about their weirdest jobs, favorite show moments and toughest gigs. A key to who's-who in the image is below, and a behind-the-scenes video can be found at the end of this story.

Noel Fisher, 'Shameless' (Showtime)
Humble beginning: "I had a really tiny part in the Tom Green movie Freddy Got Fingered. My character's name was 'Acne-Faced Teenager.'"

Terry Crews, 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' (Fox)
Weirdest job: "The first thing I ever auditioned for was a game show called Battledome. They put me in a cage and I had to fight three different contestants and send them to the hospital."

Kaitlin Olson, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (FX)
Humble beginning: "I did a little movie called Coyote Ugly. I was 'Bidder Number Three.' You probably recognize me from that."

Retta, 'Parks and Recreation' (NBC)
Toughest gig: "I've done stand-up on a bus from New Jersey to New York. I also did shows at the Hustler club in L.A."

Adam Pally, 'The Mindy Project' (Fox)
Emmy speech plan: "It won't happen. If I make it to the stage, it's because T.J. [Miller] and I rob a bank next door and we're running through the auditorium."
