If memory serves this isn't the first time somebody was accidentally hanged during a passion play.

Probably blame it on the Jews.

Should have played Jesus.

His family should at least get the silver.

The Santa Casa de Itapeva hospital has confirmed the death and an autopsy will take place on Monday.

Really? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it probably wasn't cancer that did him in.

CSB time -

In college, I was in the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar....(very small part)...and while Judas was 'hung' with a safety harness securely attached, some of the fun times included:

1) Jesus passed out on the cross, and we had to prop him up during the final number.
2) I was the soldier who held a big glass bowl for Pilate to wash his hands in - when he put his hands in....he squeezed a fake blood cap, which turned the water red....and every night, he'd splash me harder when he pulled his hands out, trying to get a reaction.
3) The guy who played Caiaphas couldn't pronounce the word 'lepers'. It always came out "leopards."
The stage was slanted, and we had to fight to stay up stage during the dance numbers, or else risk sliding down into the orchestra pit.
4) Because of time crunches, most costume changes were done right off-stage, for both men and women.

Good times.....

So, who gets his 30 pieces of silver?
 
2012-04-23 01:25:46 PM
No problem. He'll be back in 3 days, right?

Oh. Never mind. He's farked.

I can recall at least two other examples from the last few years.

I demand a ban on stage acting. It's a dangerous pursuit.


/why headline no use 'actor dies on stage, receives plaudits for realistic portrayal' etc?

Does this classify as "assisted suicide" or "accident"?

If the latter, I'm thinking we have a way around a few laws.

Somebody with a sense of humor should've stolen the body on Sunday.

It's like prostitution. It's illegal to do, unless people are going to be watching it.

I love being humorous, but that seems a little far to go to make a joke. They'd crucify me if I got caught.

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing.

He did it wrong. That's why he didn't get the part of Jesus.

Brazil actor playing Judas dies from accidental hanging

www.lordargent.com

In your private chamber you're all alone
The well earned silver pieces falling to the floor
The flame of the candle casting movement to the wall
Your eyes filled with guilt keep staring at the door
Approaching visions of things I cant recall
A familiar smile awakes the pain
Unkept promises
The night awaits
The act of confidence
The kiss of Judas
I feel the lips on my cheek
The kiss of Judas
Haunts me once again

Also, a brazillian actor's accidental hanging?
You'd think they'd learn after the first half brazillion or so.

//Not to do with Judas but the rich don't die and are obsessed with this "sims" where they see the "so long." Good read so far.

This would make a terrific episode of Monk, because Brazil is dirty and he doesn't like that.

Been there, nearly did that, repeatedly. Ryerson theatre, Toronto, '79. Hanged into the flyway. Had to hold onto the rope on the way up a few times. Wheee.
