The actors, told that Ramsey is method acting and will not be interacting with them outside of their scenes, walk up to Ramsey in public and recite their lines while hidden cameras catch Ramseys confused reactions.The plan goes well at first Ramsey ends up starring unknowingly in the film. However, Ramsey who is a member of an organization called MindHead misinterprets the movies scifi dialogue and believes he is being stalked by aliens, damaging his alreadyprecarious mental state.
