¡Hola!

No consigo entender el significado de la primera frase de este párrafo, ¿podrían ayudarme, por favor?

He must have landed or got a callback on, like, 80% of the calls he'd go on. Like, he would get offers and have to turn down commercials and shows because he was already booked up.

¡Muchas gracias!
