Stuntman and character actor Chris Morena, who was once a line up suspect on NBC’s Law & Order, takes his tacky tourist photo-ops seriously.

As well he should.

Notice the passion and energy that Chris demonstrates as he interacts with the wooden board and the fake Will Ferrell in this memorable scene from Talladega Nights.

Chris is at one with the board. He is the board.

When you stick your head in hole, it is essential you contextualize the photo board. Who is my character? Who is he or she interacting with? How should I be feeling?

Ignore this advice at your own peril. Not infusing your mind, body and personality into each photo will result in a dull and boring photo-op.

This Talladega Nights tribute stands at the Old Town boardwalk in Kissimmee, also home of the infamous coin-operated electric chair.

(Chris Morena, a performer for Disney’s Hollywood “Lights, Motors, Action!” Extreme Stunt Show, also has done stunt driving for a Jordin Sparks music video).
