Not to be confused with Entertainer.

The Entertainment career track is one of the ten basic career tracks for The Sims base game. The Entertainment career track was added to The Sims 2 with the FreeTime expansion pack. In The Sims 2: FreeTime, the career reward is a "Starstruck" Personal Fame Star. The Entertainment track also appeared in The Sims Life Stories, where it is the career pursued by Riley Harlow, one of the player characters in Story Mode.

The Entertainment career track varies greatly between the three games in which it appears. In The Sims, its promotion levels and job descriptions are similar to those of the Show Business career track from The Sims 2: University and the Film career track from The Sims 3: Late Night; while in The Sims 2: FreeTime it appears to exclude the film/TV theme from the original career track in The Sims, incorporating instead elements from the Musician, Animal Care, Circus and Fame careers from the original game's expansions, as well as some NPC careers such as the Mime. In The Sims Life Stories it seems to be more heavily production-based, as most promotion levels involve writing, directing or producing, while only one level involves acting.

There is no Entertainment career track in The Sims 3, though the Acting and Directing branches of the Film career (introduced in Late Night) are similar to the Entertainment career as it appears in The Sims and The Sims Life Stories, respectively. The three performance-based professions (Singer, Acrobat, and Magician) introduced in Showtime are similar to the Entertainment career as it appears in FreeTime.

You're "atmosphere," "living scenery." The pay is pitiful, but at least you're on the set. No lines, though... and Central Casting can call you for the day shift or the night shift, depending on the production needs. Make sure you develop your charisma skill so that when that speaking part does come through, you'll be ready. Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 0 Skill Charisma 0

You're able to support yourself in your chosen career--barely. You've actually got a few lines to speak... ironically, they often seem to be, "May I take your order, sir?" Building relationships and your body is important now. Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 0 Skill Charisma 2

4) Stunt Double
That's not the box-office mega-star being set on fire and tossed from a helicopter--that's you. You're making a name for yourself, though, and directors like your novel ideas for mock mayhem. Keep those creative juices flowing. You just might graduate to a low-budget starring role of your own--if you survive. Keep yourself and your gear in top shape, or you may miss that air bag. And keep developing your active social life--not only is it fun, it's very useful. Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 0 Skill Charisma 2

Cheap sci-fi, lowbrow horror and teen hormone comedies--you're the star...even if your best work seems to go "straight to video". If you really want to make it big, you need a great body and some very convincing and creative dialogue. Lots of work needed on these skills from here on out.

Your name's not on the poster, but at least it's a "major motion picture". You're the best friend, the villain's sidekick, or the cop who dies in the first half-hour. But, the studios have noticed you, and big things may be on the horizon. Keep practicing your lines and remember, it's not always what you know, it's who you know that counts.

You can afford a bigger house now, but the killer hours assure that you're not home as much as you'd like. Keep developing your charisma and body skills or you'll never get to the big screen.

You made it to the big screen. You're now making more money for fewer hours, but you may suddenly have to leave town for a distant location shoot. You're loving all the attention.
