Acting Tips

by

I was recently cleaning watching Friends, “The One with the Race Car Bed” from Season 3, and lo and behold there was some math! in this episode Joey got a job teaching “Acting for Soap Operas”, and in one scene he shares some tricks of the trade: how to cry, how to convey evilness, and how to respond to bad news. The math is in that last one: “Let’s say I’ve just gotten bad news. Well all I do there is try and divide 232 by 13.”

How well does that work?  [The math part starts about 40 seconds into the scene.]
