The cast of a work is on average more attractive than the general populace.
The selection of cast members during the production of a work is not just a matter of how well an actor/actress plays a role; it's also about the actor's invariable individual characteristics.
Basically, the more people go to watch a given work a particular cast has a role in, the better. Or, in these terms, the more attractive a person, the more likely they will make a career as cast members.
