Are These Actors Good Enough To Fool The Cops?
13 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two young people are shot right after some window shopping. A punk comes up to the girl and shoots her dead at point-blank range. He then fires at the fiancé who is about 15 feet away. He survives, but the more the program goes on, the more it becomes a possibility that he is in on the shooting. Having himself shot as well as his girlfriend. That seems a little far-fetched but then again, a lot of these Criminal Intent stories are pretty bizarre, so it's a definite possibility. The kid is an aspiring young actor.

Contemplating the above, Eames wonders, "Taking a bullet to the shoulder to make it look real? Now that's acting!" Did the young actor have the whole thing set up, or is he just lucky to be alive as a jealous actor-friend of his could easily be behind this murder. He's the better actor but was sabotaged earlier in his career by his buddy.

Jealousy and desire to become a movie star is a big part of the motivation for this story......but which actor is the most jealous of the other?
