If there's anything worse than being dead, it's probably being undead. And if there's anything worse than being undead, it's being forced to tell your now-lycanthropic best friend that he must commit suicide before you'll be able to shuffle off your (rapidly decaying) mortal coil and join the choir invisible.

That's exactly what happens to poor Jack Goodman (Griffin Dunne) in the 1981 horror/comedy classic An American Werewolf in London. Those who've seen the recent blu-ray release (and the "Under the Moon" documentary that's included) will know that Mr. Dunne suffered through a lot of physical misery in order to bring Jack Goodman to "life," but his presence and performance in the flick is absolutely integral. And hilarious.

After the jump you'll find one of Jack's juicier appearances in the film, but the question of the day is this: How would you deal with your soon-to-be-werewolf best buddy if you were in Jack Goodman's shoes??
