Ultimate Stunt

Honestly, the easiest one any chance I got! And I’d try to transition to can’t-be-put-at-risk movie star ASAP!

But if we’re gonna fantasize, I’d do way-cool, rugged action sequences involving blazing guns and bloody, brutal slugfests where the bad guys get their butts mule-kicked and handed to them nastily and ingeniously with a certain ferocious, violent humor and immensely kinetic flair! The point is, most of the crazy stuff—involving outrageous hazards and bodies exposed to intense, immense or extraordinary forces—would involve the bad guys suffering through it, and me inflicting it. There’d really be just a few poignant jeopardy moments, really the bare minimum, where I’m menaced in bloodcurdling and hellacious fashion, to thrill the masses!

My action would be more the active icon doing cool feats and tours de force than the victimized sufferer with all sorts of mayhem and mischief befalling him!

Honestly, I would do all of Eliza Dushku’s stunts from the TV show Dollhouse. I know it’s not a film, but she got to fight, ride motorcycles… a ton of really cool stuff.
