Mr. Kurtainbaum,

why did you decide to continue production

on "The Game of Death"?

I feel I personally owe it to Bruce

to finish this picture.

This was his passion project,

his statement to the world.

This was his "Gone with the Wind".

Ronney, how do you plan on

completing the movie without its star?

You see, we are going to do

a worldwide search

for the man who will literally

be stepping into Bruce Lee's shoes

to complete his performance.

Ronney, won't it be obvious

that it's someone else playing Bruce Lee?

Film reality, my man,

it's made in the editing room, you know?

Eisenstein, you know,

he taught us that with associative editing,

and that was 50 years ago.

We're only limited

by our own imaginations.

We meet again, Bob.


I knew you were a snake,

Leroy Jackson.


Well, it doesn't matter

because I will destroy both of you.

Have you met

my sirens of fury?

Oh, you've joined the Nazi Party.

Poor birds.

I feel sorry for all of you

in the afterlife.



You know, I really don't know why

people keep confusing me and Bruce.

I mean, seriously,

we are two totally different actors.

Yes, but...

don't you see the obvious similarities?

Look, the cat wears

a yellow jumpsuit on the big screen,

I'm always wearing a blue one.

He's Bruce Lee, I'm Breeze Loo.

It's kind of like Pepsi and Coke.

I can guarantee one thing -

anyone who's taken that Pepsi Challenge

can definitely taste the difference.

Is it true

you don't do your own fighting?

That's correct.

I mean, why should I, right? I'm an actor.

There's a name for actors that do

their own fighting. They're called stuntmen.

To me, acting's all right here,

in the eyes.

What do you think

of Bruce Lee's acting?

You know,

I wouldn't really know.

I've never seen any of his films.


Come on, I've done 14 films in

the last two years. I've been a little busy.

Why are you

entertaining the idea of finishing his film?

The cat and I are peers.

I figure if I was the one who passed early,

I hope he'd have done

the same for me.

Yes, master.

Would you like another?

What do you think?

- I think that was pretty good.

- I liked that one. You sure?

- I asked Saraghina to be my manager.

- Yeah, but I'm still his lady.

It's the ultimate when you get to

work with someone you love.

Yeah, yeah.

I'd do anything for Cole.

What is it

you are doing at these studios?


You go first, honey.

Well, I'm here to be in

my first Hollywood movie.

- I feel really blessed.

- Yeah, yeah.

I was at this swap meet

and I found this flyer

that said that "The Trombone Thief Part 3"

was needing someone to play the butler.

I only have one line, but I think it's a big

deal because they're already on part three.

Yeah, plus this gives us momentum

to go into "The Game of Death".

- It's a perfect career move.

- Cole Kim, we need you on the set now.

You look great.

You look great.


Best butler ever.

- I think it's one of those European films.

- Yeah, maybe.

- You do golden showers?

- Um...

I-I'm Cole Kim.

I-I-I'm playing the butler.

Well, go change into your butler outfit

and sit outside the door.

As I'm humping the blonde

and chomping on the Oriental's furburger,

look through the peephole

and whack off, OK?

- Go. Wardrobe.

- Whack off?

Yes, whack off.

The fucky-sucky is reserved for me.

Daylight, come on.

- Change.

- Forget you.


Get me another butler, OK?


Aim low. I want to see the hardcore. If you

don't see the hardcore, don't shoot. OK...

And... action.

Now stick it right in her ass.
