When you are on the run from the police for killing your neighbour what would you do? Keep a low profile? Change your identity?
Nah, audition for a role as a policeman in a film about a murder….
This really happened last week. A man allegedly murdered his neighbour in northern NSW then went on the run. He made his way north, stopping for an audition at the pub in the outback town of Winton along the way.
He eventually arrived in the outskirts of Darwin where he dumped his car and went bush. He was eventually captured after six days of searching and is now in custody.
Did he really think things through when he auditioned? Surely he would have been more convincing with a role on the side of the bad guys.
He did win the part as a background policeman though, maybe he should start up a prison theatre group or something?
