    For me, the mystic allure of being an actor is their perceived control over emotions and unlimited memory

    After watching the Joe Rogan and RDJ episode, I gotta admit that RDJ is looking funny in the light admitting to using an ear piece without any known problems
    already cued at 7:35

    I recall the Johnny Depp compulsory thread talmbot him hiring someone to feed him lines and read how Brando later in his years started using it cause he couldn't remember

    Are ear pieces a norm now? How do you view actors using it?

    now at this point...Tom C > Denzel > Leo > Tom H > Rock > RDJ

    1. I didn't know RDJ played for the Astros

    2. This thread should be about the compelling convo they had about Tropic Thunder

    ...I should've been clear with criteria
    Tom does own stunts and memorize lines
    Denzel memorize lines

    nah, there're enough discussions/references about that

    I guess it's not a problem since you still gotta perform in character.

    when you're able to deliver despite the pressure being high because you're juggling multiple responsibilities...that's greatness in anything

    -imagine you goto a play, then find out the actors are all being fed lines...I'll feel cheated
    -imagine being an actor spending weeks to learn your lines but your colleague can just showup
    -imagine the lopsided audition results when some actors are fed lines while others are not



    cheating. Now he focus only on facial expressions, no chances of special moments of improvisation


    ignorance is bliss, until something leaks or admission of guilt. The award voters should consider this because it gives certain actors advantages over others

    Actually i think it might be a better performance this way. Instead seeming rehearshed you saying things as they enter your head just like we do in real life. Probably helps him be more authentic, some actors adlib have their lines to get this feeling.

    assuming this isn't the norm yet, feeding lines will open the flood gate of wanna-be actors

    true. Hopefully everybody in the scene will have access to that crutch

    I didn’t even know this takes place. I see no problem with it.

    Advantage? What’s stopping actors who feel they need to use it from using it?


    A leak or admission wouldn’t change a thing for me. I think your position would have more merit for stage plays. But for movies/TV I know what I’m watching didn’t really take place in one continuous time period, so I don’t see how this would be any different than taking multiple takes to get the scene right.
