Why are so many producers/directors in America for film are Jewish?

this is NOT an anti-Semitic question I am Jewish (Jewish mum, Catholic dad)

Jewish people are 6% of the US census, but you couldn't tell by the number of Jewish producers, directors, actors and especially Jewish references in programs and movies.


where I was born, in Italy, this is unheard of.

Update 2:

ps: I'm half Jewish, I like enough to get by but I have no interest in being rich. I need a more educational answer.

    Jews are less than 2% of the US population (about 6 million people).

    From what I understand, Jews were prominent in the entertainment industry in certain European countries before the Holocaust, so European Jewish immigrants made their mark on the same in the US as well.
