The Guy Who Dies So Beautifully

Les Marcott

Hey I wonder if you could do me a favor...look through your files and find me that guy who dies so beautifully. What's his name? He doesn't get much screen time but he makes the most of it. He makes death look so realistic. He can take a knife, a bullett...hell even a baseball bat to the head and know how to to turn...slump over and fall.  Even his eyes roll back in his head just so. And that death rattle in his throat..just incomparable. Tarentino world kill...figuratively speaking to get this guy. He''s got the physics of homicide figured out.  And the close up...that sad,sweet, lifeless expression symbolizing all the violence this mad, sadistic, fucked up world is capable of...yea that’s my guy. Well I do ramble on. Do you know his name or not?  What?  He's dead? Do you mean theatrically in will never work in this town again dead?  Or do you mean clinically in will never work in any town again dead?  Wow, what a blow. Hmm...I do have an all important funeral scene coming up. Maybe I could still use him.  Did he die in the last few days? Hello...Hello...
