Bob becomes a villain with a scar

How did Bachelor Bob, the goofiest member of the Kill Reality, cast transform into the film’s villain? Did he take acting classes to learn how act mean? Did he receive a personality transplant? Nope. Instead, the makeup artists added a scar to his forehead.

Skinema, a “dermatology in the media blog,” notes that this is “the skinema standard: a fake forehead scar.” The blog helpfully provides a before, during, and after photo to illustrate how truly ridiculous this is. “Is this the face of a killer?” it asks, showing us Bob laughing his goofy ass off with a scar on his forehead.
