The Immortal Gus Fring

Drug lord Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) made quite an impression as the toughest of tough guys on Breaking Bad. He managed to survive many attempts on his life during the series with style and menace, so (spoiler coming) when he was eventually assassinated by a nonverbal colleague in a wheelchair, we were doubly shocked. YouTuber Alternative Cuts spent two months editing together a video illustration of how bulletproof Fring really was. He confidently steps into danger, brought by all the badasses from Breaking Bad, then by other movie characters who shoot to kill. The walk get longer and longer as every cinematic killer, no matter how ridiculous, is thrown at him. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

Don't want to pop anyone's bubble, but has anyone else departed from childhood far enough to seriously question the work ethic of all those underlings employed by the baddies ?

Take the Storm Troopers under the sway of Darth Vader .... are they happy with the idea that their work day may end in a very final way ?

Was it Star Trek with the plebes in red shirts that gave their all, literally unquestionably, to battle with the Klingons (or whomever the opposing forces were, I wasn't a great fan)

Even the many minor players in Fallout, surely they had wives and children to go home to and hence you'd think they would defer from getting involved in fights with guns, knives, bombs and other armaments

Just shows to go you how strong the Actor's Guild is.
