An American pretended to be dead 320 times to get the role of a corpse in the series (video)

After 200 videos, the creators of the crime series “C.S.I.: Vegas” wrote to Nellie and offered the role.

Related video < p>Josh Nally, a 42-year-old resident of Elizabethtown (Kentucky, USA), dreamed of getting at least a tiny role in the C.S.I.: Vegas series so much that he posted several hundred videos on his TikTok in which he very convincingly depicted the deceased. By mid-July and about 200 videos later, the show's creators took notice, and on November 3, the man will appear in an episode of the CBS crime-forensic drama, according to The Courier-Journal of Louisville.

The man works as a restaurant manager in a nearby town. Over the past year, the American has been filming videos where he pretends to be dead. For filming, he chose the backyard of his home, abandoned camping houses, waterfronts, swimming pools, sidewalks, and nearby parks such as Burnheim Forest and Saunders Springs. He usually did it on weekends, shooting several videos at once. Adding to the creepiness of the commercials are Josh's three dogs, who licked his face while the man pretended to be a dead body. data-video-id=”7090569210811682091″ style=”max-width: 605px; min-width: 325px;” > @living_dead_josh #Totinos425 #foryoupage #fyp ♬ Night Trouble – Petit Biscuit

Most often, he shoots video with a phone and a tripod, but from time to time he resorts to the help of family friends. Nellie's method is simple: he takes a couple of deep breaths and then holds his breath for about 25 seconds and tries to remain as still as possible.

Later, Josh admitted that he was just having fun doing this and did not expect anyone will react seriously to his performances:

“I spent a lot of time on TikTok and tried to figure out what I could do to get a TikTok star and maybe a movie with minimal effort.”

More than 200 videos later, CBS producers emailed him, offering him a role in C.S.I.: Vegas. He didn't believe it at first, but after exchanging several emails, the studio sent him to Los Angeles over the summer. Nellie announced his new role in Video #321. He sprawled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next to longtime CSI star Marg Helgenberger.

For filming, Nellie had two hours of makeup to turn into a character with traces of an autopsy. The shooting process lasted five hours. He needed to lie on the couch and do what he does best, play dead.

Jason Tracy, showrunner for C.S.I.: Vegas, said Nellie was perfect for the role of “a body in front of a mortuary”:

After 321 ads or so, he's been successful and it's time to get called up to the big leagues.”

John Nally is not a big crime fan and doesn't watch much TV, but he is a fan of the original CSI series.

After debuting as a corpse, Nellie has already received several offers for filming in new projects. However, he assured that he would not stop making videos for his 120,000 subscribers. He hopes that someone will be inspired by his perseverance and also be able to achieve what he wants.
