Now, it surely isn’t easy to get professional actors for every small role. Enter, extras! More often than not the job is well done, but sometimes they, well, fail. Most mistakes are hardly noticeable but there are certain infamous scenes where the extras goofed up bad, really bad. And it gets even more annoying because once you see them, you cannot unsee anymore.
Here we list six extras from hell who have completely ruined scenes. Whether it is intentional or not, these actors have definitely left a mark in the history of cinema, something they probably won’t be too proud of.
