Now that’s how you commit to a role
A Brazilian actor playing Judas who accidentally hanged himself during a scene in “The Passion of Christ” has died.
A hospital in Brazil’s Sao Paulo state confirms on its website the death of 27-year-old Tiago Klimeck. An autopsy is being performed Monday following his death the previous day.
The actor had been in a coma since the accident on Good Friday earlier this month in the city of Itarare.
Investigator Jose Victor Bacetti told the G1 news website Klimeck accidentally hanged himself during a scene in which his character Judas commits suicide. About four minutes passed before anyone noticed, believing he was playing his role.
Police are examining the security apparatus that was meant to support Klimeck during the scene. It’s unclear if any charges will be filed.
Eat shit Christian Bale! That’s how you commit to a role.
I’m tired of all these Hollywood types saying that they’re “method actors”. I remember reading an article online about how Christian Bale was living under bridges in Boston and shit when he was playing a meth head in “The Fighter”. And everybody lost their shit about it. Mark Wahlberg was talking about what an honor it was working with him, and how the cast had no idea where he was living, and how much weight he had lost, and how his hair was actually thinning and blah blah blah batman. People saying he was smoking meth during the shoots to help get into a mind frame of a drug addict. Fuck that. That isn’t method acting, that’s being a fucking bum who does meth. Any jackass could do meth, it’s just most of us don’t because we have standards/ can afford better drugs/ aren’t from St. Louis. And now we got Nic Cage’s crazy-ass saying he was wearing a voodoo mask to play a fucking skeleton that rides a motorcycle. That’s not method acting either, that’s just being bat-shit banana sandwich crazy. And yet for some reason every time I would explain this to some die-hard theater student they would lose their fucking mind and tell me how close-minded I was and how I knew nothing about acting, and how serious their major was.
Well enter Tiago Klimeck. Just curb stomping Christian Bale’s scrawny meth-addicted ass. Like, “Yeah bro, you smoked some meth for your role? I fucking killed myself for mine.” Now that’s method acting. I’ve heard tons of theater students say they would die to play a certain role in a certain play. Well, it’s time to put up or shut up now bitches, because Tiago Klimeck did just that. And you gotta respect the determination here. Just a true team player. Giving 110 percent to his role. It’s like when you see a player dive into the stands for a loose ball, you just gotta tip your cap to them. so Tiago Klimeck, I tip my cap to you.
PS. Where the hell was Tiago Klimeck during church when I was growing up? Church was boring as shit growing up. I mean honestly it was a struggle to stay awake through it when I was a kid. But if we had motherfuckers hanging themselves for plays and going balls to the wall to reproduce the Passion of the Christ I woulda been going to mass once a day and twice on Sundays. Shit I mighta become a priest is Tiago Klimeck was in my parish.
