20 Iconic Movie Lines That Weren’t In The Script
You are probably familiar with Kurtwood Smith’s role od Red, Eric Forman’s father in ‘That’s 70s Show.’ But did you know that he responsible for creating one of the most memorable movie scenes in the 80s? Smith did an amazing job as Clarence Boddicker, the main villain in ‘RoboCop’. He made character scarier than he already was. In RoboCop, Smith takes a beating by RoboCop before he is taken into police custody. As he approaches a desk, he spits blood on the paperwork laying in front of him. He then shouts, ” Give me my f***in’ phone call!” The whole set stood still.
Although this scene was improvised by Smith, he did discuss it with director Paul Verhoeven earlier who supported him. So, real spitting and demanding his phone call was all written by Smith. It was so sudden and unexpected that it shocked the entire crew and the rest of the actors.
