Stuntman mania!

01.17.2008
Iíve never watched a movie and been like ĎHey, thatís not Tom Cruise leaping off that skyscraper! Thatís his stunt double! Ď Itís not because Tom does his own stunts, but because filmmakers are usually very careful to hide the fact that their heroic movie stars are too cowardly to drive that car off that cliff or leap onto that speeding train. Seeing that it wasnít them would devastate the illusion, and Hollywood canít have that. But guess what, Empire Online can, which is why theyíve crafted this nifty little game for all of us to enjoy. They want you to match the stunt man with the movie star heís subbing for. Itís not as easy as you think, although a couple of them are giveaways. Come join the fun HERE.

Extra Tidbit: I shouldn't have knocked Tom Cruise like that. He's known for doing his own stunts.

It's not because they're cowards. Generally it's because producers don't want to risk killing their talent. And in the case of a huge celebrity, that would mean the jobs of everyone on a production would be lost, and maybe even a lawsuit. Worse comes to worse...all the money they put into the production would be lost.

So I don't think it's cowardice that keeps them from stunts (though can you blame them if they didn't want to do some of those crazy things) but good ol'fashion money.
