Find A Bad Guy
The Cliché: No matter how large or small the movie heist, there will always be a snake in the ranks who wants the cash all for themselves. Your job is to find one.
Appears In: The Usual Suspects (1995)
How To Recreate It: Everybody works with this guy. Go into any job anywhere and ask the lackeys who their version of this guy is, then invite him to a self-promotion dinner, and tell him to bring mother.
Once you’ve collected enough of these douchey denizens, stage some kind of soiree. During cocktails, enter with a gun, the person who hides behind his mother and offers her up fastest is your guy. If he has a limp, all the better.
If his mum is hot, tell him you want to marry her in return for a part in the movie. He'll say yes.
