Idea for the day: An online database similar to IMDB that tracks every actor and every role they've ever played, but also keeps count of how many times they've played a character who dies in the movie (the idea being that we wondered whether there are people whose specialty is playing characters who get killed, just as there are people who seem typecast for villainous roles, etc). This database would be called SPOILER ALERT. I can't remember who I had this idea with (I was in a car, talking to somebody), but that person deserves half the credit.
