Duane Martin in Scream 2

Jada Pinkett-Smith didn't survive the opening credits of this sequel to runaway hit Scream, but Duane Martin had better luck. As journalist Gale Weathers' reluctant cameraman Joel, Martin had the good sense to bounce when the dead bodies started piling up. Trivia: Martin's character was meant to be murdered in the film's original ending, but when the script leaked onto the Internet, director Wes Craven changed his fate.
