TOP improvisations that deserve an Oscar
A cat in the arms of Don Corleone in “The Godfather”
Originally, there was no cat in the script. But as the filmmakers later told, the cat, which happened to be on the set, jumped to Marlon Brando’s knees, and the actor, taking the moment, played the scene of not the most pleasant conversation, calmly stroking the cat. Agree, the filmmakers were right, leaving this scene.
Bald haircut in “Life is beautiful”
The scene where Joseph Gordon-Levitt is completely cutting his hair – is pure improvisation. And since this action wasn’t in the script, Seth Rogen didn’t even have to play his reaction - he was really terrified by the sudden action of his partner.
Shawarma in the “The Avengers”
After the scene where the character of Robert Downey Jr. saved the Hulk from death, the first one asks other superheroes: “Have you ever tried shawarma? There's a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don't know what it is, but I want to try it.” This was also not in the script, but the filmmakers liked the idea so much that they decided to add a scene on how superheroes eat shawarma after the titles.
