A method actor collapsed on stage while drinking real vodka to give a convincing portrayal of a Russian drunk.

Marc Schulze, appearing in the play "Moscow/Petushki" by Russian satirist Venedict Yerofeyev, downed shot after shot, but the audience didn't realize something was wrong until he started missing his lines and staring blankly at other actors.

One audience member said, "I was amazed at how good his drunken staggering was and how he was slurring his words."

That's some compliment, coming from a Russian. That's like Catherine Zeta-Jones telling you your tits look good.
