Albert Brooks Thought He Killed a Guy on the Set of 'Drive' (VIDEO)

Albert Brooks, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Acting is way tougher than we imagined. On 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Albert Brooks talked about an experience he had with a choking scene that makes us question the authenticity of every violent scene we see on the screen.

Everyone from the director to the actor he was working with him was pushing him to choke the guy harder. "Choke me, man," the guy insisted. So Brooks did.

He did until the guy literally passed out, and according to Brooks, genuinely stopped breathing. Talk about authenticity in Hollywood!

Brooks' favorite bit, though, was the producer of the film coming over and asking how he was -- never mind the guy lying on the ground not breathing. Okay, the guy was breathing, but Brooks wasn't certain about that at the time.

Love Albert and will forgive him anything including poor choice of material. I am a Hollywood actor and have made many bad choices so I have some empathy man. You're still the best and your work in MY FIRST MISTER stays with me and will be forever. So put down that vial of Phenobarbital, get out of the toga and be nice to yourself.

Please, "LL", take a break! Get a real job. Go away, far away, you're wasting space here. No one wants to buy your spiel. You're probably not even a real person.

"Drive" is horrible, terrible, and boring movie that I left after a hour to exchange ticket to see "The Help" which is excellent and funny movie! People had done the same thing to see another movies after "Drive" which was terrible movie

Worst movie ever! I was disappointed in Albert Brooks for being in such a piece of juvenile badly paced piece of filth. Vile language, everyone evil (how can you care about a movie if you can't care about any of the characters - unless it's a black comedy, which this certainly wasn't) unless clueless, twisted storyline, G-rated love story but RX-rated violence (need meds to watch). I expected far better of all the actors, for there was some hint that they could act if given a decent vehicle, but most particularly Albert Brooks. His agent really let him down.
