So many people think that acting can be such an easy job; you show up to the set, get your hair and make-up done, then read lines from a script. If only it were that simple. Oftentimes, actors have to be quick-witted and prepared for anything and this can take years of practice, experience, and even creativity. While movies and TV shows are usually carefully scripted, mistakes do happen – either on the part of production or the part of the action. In those cases, you have to be flexible and roll with it. That’s when actors get creative. Here are some examples of when actors had to use their super talents to cover up a mistake or bloopers on the fly, because, you know what they say in the show business – the show must go on.
Although the show Seinfeld doesn’t ever need any help in the humor department, a little extra humor in the form of unscripted bloopers never hurts. Like in the iconic episode The Parking Garage, where the gang spends the entire episode running around a garage looking for their car. Somehow, this crew made those 30 minutes hilarious and oh-so-relatable.
However, the funniest part wasn’t even part of the original script. After the gang finally finds their car and gets ready to get out of the parking garage, the car decided they weren’t going anywhere. No, really. The car actually did not start. The script was supposed to have them drive away, but they all agreed the irony here is much funnier.
