After Months Of Unemployment, This Actor FINALLY Landed A Role…Too Bad He’ll Never Act Again After He Does THIS On Stage!

Too many people move to big cities hoping to follow their dreams of becoming a musician or an actor or an artist. In these incredibly competitive field, even the smallest mistake can have lasting effects on your reputation. This hopeful actor got a call from his agent, and he thought that things were finally about to turn around…unfortunately, he wasn’t quite prepared for this turn of events…

An out-of-work actor gets a call from his agent saying that he’s got a part for him in an upcoming play.

“You’ll have to go to an audition, but it’s just one line – ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’” says the agent.

So the actor goes to the audition, stands in front of the director and loudly proclaims, “Hark, I hear the cannons roar!”. The director says that he’s brilliant and has got the part; all he needs to do is turn up on the night, after the interval, as his line is right at the start of the second act.

On the night of the play the actor is running late due to traffic. He runs up to the theater, but a bouncer stops him, “Who are you?”

“I’m Hark, I hear the cannon roar!’”

“You’re ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’? You’re late, get to makeup quickly!”

The actor rushes up to makeup, where a woman stops him, “Who are you?”

“I’m ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’”

“You’re ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’? You’re late, we’d better get you into your costume!”

So after the actor is dressed and his makeup is done, he rushes to the side of the stage where a stagehand stops him, “Who are you?”

“I’m ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’”

“You’re ‘Hark, I hear the cannons roar!’? You’re about to go on, you’ve arrived just in time!”

So the actor steps out in front of the audience, the spotlight upon him. Suddenly, there is a very loud bang behind him, and the actor shouts, “WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT!?”

I feel so bad for him! The director was at fault on this one for not holding any sort of rehearsals for this guy, but that won’t be enough to save him. Obviously, this actor should have realized that the “cannon” in his dialogue was an actual cannon, but he’ll probably never work for this theater again. I bet the crowd got a good laugh out of it, though! I love when things go wrong on stage. It makes for a much more interesting story!
