Actor Accidentally Uses Loaded Gun In Play

To quote the great Peter Boyle "HOLY CRAP"...
BRADENTON, Fla. -- Tragedy nearly struck a group of actors in Bradenton, Fla., when authorities say a loaded gun was accidentally used during a rehearsal.

Members of the Sarasota Senior Theater were rehearsing a scene from John Steinback's "Of Mice and Men" when one actor picked up a pistol he'd borrowed from another cast member.

He pointed the revolver at another actor's head and pulled the trigger. The shot grazed the man's ear. He was treated at a hospital and another actor took his place in the performance that went on as scheduled a few hours later.
