Birdman Scene 2

Scene 2

Scene 2

  • Riggan gets to the stage and three people are in the middle of a scene of what appears to be an adaptation of "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love," a Raymond Carver short story.
  • Ralph, one of the leads, can't act. Riggan is mad at him.
  • Then, Ralph gets hit in the head and knocked unconscious by some sort of light fixture.
  • Everyone freaks out. Riggan leaves.
  • He's followed by his lawyer, producer, and best friend, Jake. He tells Jake to find another actor but all of his suggestions—Woody Harrelson, Michael Fassbender, etc—are in the middle of blockbuster superhero movies.
  • Jake is worried about Ralph suing him but Riggan just tells him to do what he was born to do and make it all go away.
