Extra Fail: As the Ghostbusters arrive to save the day, one foppish, red-haired extra gets too excited, yelling “Ghostbusters! Alright! Alright!” (at 1.34 in the clip), to the annoyance of everyone.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Too distracting, too enthusiastic, too MUCH. And he nearly tramples all over the end of Bill Murray's line. Hey Red, just tone it down.
10 Things I Hate About You
Extra Fail: When the coach is accidentally shot with an arrow (at 7.30 in the clip), one girl is sent to get medical help… but after running for a short while, she just stops and turns around, assuming she is out of shot.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Lady: Not committed to the role. You have to give 110% in this business and she's giving 15-16% tops.
Star Trek Generations
Extra Fail: When the Enterprise defeats the Klingon bird of prey, a newly emoted Data punches the air in triumph, which would have had more of an impact if the extra behind him didn’t do the same thing a split-second before.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Constantly tries to steal the scene and undermine his fellow co-stars. Actually, he'd probably do quite well in Hollywood.
Extra Fail: Following the film’s epic bloody battle, two opposing fighters can be seen in the background just half-heartedly clanging swords together before giving up.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Men: These guys can't do anything unless specifically choreographed for them. They probably appear as extras in other films, just lazily walking down the street before giving up and stopping.
Extra Fail: A whaaaaat?
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Unless he was voicing a lovable cartoon animal, he'd probably have to be dubbed in every scene.
Enter The Dragon
Extra Fail: As Bruce Lee delivers a formidable triple kick to his opponent's face (at 2.20 in this clip), one of the extras inexplicably bursts into laughter.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Inappropriate sense of humour. Casting him in a horror film would be a disaster.
North By Northwest
Extra Fail: Knowing what’s coming next, this kid plugs his fingers in his ears in preparation of the ‘surprise’ gunshot.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man : Sensitive hearing. If he didn't like the loud gunshot, let's hope this kid never worked on a Michael Bay film.
Extra Fail: The most famous extra – nay, the most famous GOOF – in movie history. Isn’t this guy a little tall for a stormtrooper?
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Too clumsy. It would be like working with Frank Spencer.
Extra Fail: Often mistaken to be a male extra flashing his genitalia, the widescreen version revealed the extra to actually be a woman. Which still doesn’t make this behaviour acceptable.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Lady: If she thinks it's ok to be on camera with her jeans undone to this extent, she's going to have a lot of clashes with the wardrobe department. Imagine if she ever worked on a costume drama. It's unthinkable.
Back to the Future III
Extra Fail: Doc Brown’s kid Verne beckons YOU the audience to come closer and inspect his groin in the creepiest way possible.
Why They'll Never Make A Leading Man: Apparently this kid was signalling that he needed the loo, but really he should have gone before filming started. There's no time in this business for weak bladders.
