Actors and spies. What is critical for the spy is to choose the right side, the victorious side, for otherwise he loses his life. For the actor, what is critical is the right part. But actors’ lines are printed on sides, and we say of a part that it has twenty-one sides. In both cases, the spy and the actor, what is searched for is psychological victory, and their choices and actions have absolutely nothing to do with conventional morality.
