This is a screenshot from a deleted scene from Season Five of The West Wing, in which the Josh Lyman (played by Bradley Whitford) flips out and starts shooting up the place with an MP5-K machine-pistol.
The producers decided to axe the scene at the last minute, along with the entire plotline about the State Department being infiltrated by extra-terrestrials; the unreleased footage that was shot gives a tantalising glimpse of the writers’ original vision for the series.

Sometimes real life looks like an action movie. This is the immediate aftermath of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan in 1981. The man with the three piece suit and the Uzi is Secret Service Agent Robert Wanko. I don’t know what he’s doing these days but if he’s got any sense, he’s in Hollywood, teaching the current generation of action heroes how to strike BADASS ACTION POSES. Look at him at the top there. Such poise. It’s almost enough to make me go out and buy a pair of flares. Also in the top picture, near the right edge, you can make out his Secret Service-issue Uzi Briefcase, which is the kind of thing one sees all the time in films but are disappointingly uncommon in real life.

I picked this poster out from the many, many b-movie posters available on rarelust.com because it’s got pretty much everything one could want in in an EPIC ACTION MOVIE poster. You’ve got the good guys arranged in a roughly-triangular composition, as popularised by that Star Wars poster, you’ve got big-haired babes in bandannnas, you’ve got the cool, enigmatic one with the aviator glasses and te white t-shit, you’ve got excessive use of camouflage, and it’s all set against a MASSIVE EXPLOSION.
I don’t know that this film’s about but I would guess that the constipated-looking guy with the M16 is some grizzled old adventurer who’s assembled an elite squad of no-good street punks and circus people to pull some sort of heist. Along the way they kidnap a teenage child whom they attempt to brainwash. Stockholm Syndrome sets in, and soon he’d the baddest of them all, and is declared leader by popular acclaim. The original guy is totally pissed off by this and spends much of Act 2 of the film plotting his revenge. The last half hour is mostly explosions and people driving jeeps about in the jungle.
