SAG is the biggest bunch of whining, spineless, hopped-up crackheads I have ever met.

"HEY, MALKOVICH, THINK FAST!"

Absolutely classic stuff.

Well, Football in the Crotch was okay, but Can in the Head has a can in the head.

Too funny. Malko earn it, but wasn't as funny as crackwhore hanna.

I love it when you find brilliant ad-libs get into the final cut. Shows that spontaneity is still worth something. It's great to see actors think fast and pull out something incredible.

I also noticed that the related videos that show up in the window after it's done are all recent greenlights. Weird?

At least they had the sense to throw a mostly-empty can at him. Unless they foley'd the sound of the can hitting the ground.

Bullshiat

He got his pay bumped from 100 to 700 a day for that? Sweet.

noit How so? It's not like it's coming out to get publicity for the movie. Is every think bullshiat? Have you no room for romance in your heart?

I think I was trying to type "Do you think everything is bullshiat?"
Christ.

The videos that show up in the window after the video are the most recent videos you've watched.

Wow... Who knew linking to a scene from a movie guaranteed a green light on Fark...

I'VE BEEN DOING IT WRONG!!!

It's bullshiat because it doesn't matter how well Malkovich acts. There's still a difference between someone getting hit by a can out of nowhere, and someone acting like they got hit by can.

Also, why would there be audio on the truck? You have to mic everything you want to capture outside. The rest is foley.

And, I don't think you just get some dudes to drive the cars on your set. I think they need to be actual stuntmen. The kind of folks who you can count on to not get drunk and throw cans at your principals.

How would a beer swilling passenger in a hurtling car on the NJ Turnpike coming up from behind a man in a baseball cap along the side of the road in the dark of the night have the wherewithal and perception to discern it was John Malkovitch in time to utter his warning and let rip with a perfect, head clunking pitch? Gimme a break.

Now being able to have a portal into a famous actor's head...that I got no problem with. Everyday stuff, that.

I gotta give it to the guy throwing the beer can: that was very nice aim. It's hard to hit a target from a moving vehicle.

These guys (pops) would like to have a word with you.

Please don't link to ebaums world. Ebaum is a douche, and he steals all of his content, and watermarks it as his own. I had old Fark Photoshops treated in this manner. His site used to be listed as a friend of fark, many moons ago. Not anymore.

That whole new jersey turnpike thing in that movie all the cars were extras, if you rent the dvd they have a whole thing about it in the extras, the crew hired extras to drive their own cars up and down the highway there, the guys in that truck were extras driving their own car.

Still a great movie, didnt realize that part was an adlib....

How'd they get those car sounds? It's like magic! Foley guys can foley car sounds too, son. In fact, they almost always do. Won't comment on the rest of your statment as others have already cleared up those points.

Having said that, I think Spike Jonze is pulling our legs on this bit of commentary. Seems pretty unlikely that this "ad lib" would happen perfectly in frame, with perfect aim and timing, with Malkovich reacting in character. And it seems like something Jonze would do - BS on a commentary track.

/just sayin'.

think about that for a second

I think he channelled his "F**KING EXTRAS F**KED UP THE SHOT AGAIN!!@" frustration quite well.

Spike Jonez likes to lie and make up stories... There is now way that is 100% true, if anything maybe a grain of truth to it. But I say PURE-T-LIE from Spike. He lies, a lot, for fun.
