This note was included in an email in August 2000.
Did you see Bruce Willis on "Friends" last Monday 14th August 2000? This was a well-publicized guest role for him in a well established and very successful comedy series. As guest star Bruce appeared to make a very deliberate choice - to 'do nothing'. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. He did so little he undermined the plot a bit. But he still got away with it.
It would seem that doing 'nothing' is much safer than doing 'too much'.
So learn a lesson from Bruce. If you are going to "err" - then do so by under playing rather than overplaying.
BUT REMEMBER - keep listening.
