Old fiction novel about entertainment industry

I'm searching for the title of this novel about four young men trying to break into various parts of the entertainment industry. The novel takes place over at least a decade and begins when the boys are in high school. I remember one character was trying to become an actor, another was trying to become a music promotor or something and he ends up with this woman who uses him and breaks his heart. Another character is trying to become a film director or producer and he marries this girl because of her connections to the industry. He doesn't care about her or the daughter they have together and the woman eventually leaves him. The last guy is trying to be a writer I think but he is also struggling with his sexuality or something. I do remember for sure that the actor finally makes something of himself but is soon killed during a home robbery. If anyone knows the name of this book please let me know.
