Here’s a true gem for TV fans: NBC is taking audiences way inside tomorrow’s episode of The Player by releasing a video except of the script, which you can watch right now by using the media player included with this article.
In “Ante Up,” Alex Kane is asked by The House to stop a diamond heist, and naturally the situation spirals far out of control. At one point, Alex is involved in a full-on, middle of the street shootout, and that’s where this excerpt picks up.
Click above as Philip Winchester himself reads you through a section of the script, with footage from the actual sequence – and you can see on screen how the scene is written on the page. This gives you a unique opportunity to understand how The Player makes the jump from the written word to bringing action to life.
Plus, you have to love Winchester’s fantastic delivery of the script.
