Unlike Sting and Amy Schumer, Hollywood’s go-to nice guy is not asked to play a heightened version of himself. Instead he plays renowned theatre actor (and star of Oliver’s new play) Ben Glenroy.
A one-year time jump brings us to opening night. Ben marches out of his dressing room and confronts Oliver about a falling out with his costar, who we soon learn is Charles. TV’s erstwhile Brazzos interrupts a seemingly innocuous coughing spell and confronts Ben about his problematic behavior. “Be smart,” he warns. “Stay away from her…. I know what you did.”
Once Charles exits stage left, Ben takes his mark. He starts the show, but he’s clearly ill. His knees buckle, and he can barely catch his breath. Before long, his legs collapse beneath him and he’s sprawled out on the floor, bleeding out from his mouth.
Ben Glenroy… is dead!
