Explanation

The sentence tells you that the studios have a penchant for hiring A-list movie stars. Then it tells you those studios are rethinking that strategy, so you know the actors they’re looking for now are not A-list. This is further supported with the clues that tell you the economy is not suited to celebrities who get paid $15 to $20 million, but to another kind of actor who commands far less per picture.

So put something in the blank like unknown or new. You can eliminate choices (A) and (B) because those two answers would describe the A-list celebrities.

Choice (E) also fits more with the A-listers because they’re the ones who would be expensive.

Choice (F) doesn’t fit with anything in the sentence. That leaves choices (C) and (D), both of which mean new or just starting out, which is what you’re looking for.

Hence options C and D are correct!
