‘R.I.P.D.’ ‘Don’t Tense Up’ Featurette Shows An Avatar Hard At Work

by Brett White

With the supernatural buddy cop film “R.I.P.D.” hitting theaters this Friday, now’s the perfect time to take a look at some behind-the-scenes action. This new – and exclusive – featurette shows the hard work that went into splatting actress Marissa Miller against a bus’ windshield.

Miller portrays officer Roy Pulsipher’s avatar, marking the first – and most likely last – time that Jeff Bridges will share a role with a former Victoria’s Secret model. As “R.I.P.D.” actor Kevin Bacon explains in the featurette, avatars are how undead R.I.P.D. officers appear to the living while conducting investigations on Earth. Rookie officer Ryan Reynolds gets a Chinese man, veteran Jeff Bridges gets a model.

“R.I.P.D.” opens in theaters on July 19th.
