I had to laugh when I read this article on BBspot, as I have acted in a quite a number of plays when I was younger, and Ialways ended up being either one of the characters that died, or one of the characters that killed someone. I don’t know what that says about me as a person, but here is a list for you actors out there, or those that think they might get sucked into a movie ala Stay Tuned.
You are wearing a red shirt.
You announce that you’re going to retire, right after you finish this case.
You decide to stop following the hero and take a different route.
You declare “everything is safe” then step out from your hiding place.
You’re playing Jesus.
All your bullets miss the hero, even at point blank.
Thankfully, I haven’t come across any of these signs in real life. If you have any others, I’d love to hear them. I will leave off with one more made up by me, if the only place you can hide is in a bathroom, you are probably going to die.
