Fame & Fortune Q&A:
Bankrate: A lot of artists have to deal with variable income. How do you manage it?
Eric Bogosian: In terms of the way I deal with things financially, I’m frugal. I try to live within my means with as little debt as possible. My first priority was to make sure I had someplace to live in Manhattan, so real estate became part of it, and I just spread out.
