The folks on r/AskReddit have posed a question: let's say that two completely unrelated movies (that each happen to feature the same actor) are now part of the same reality...how do you explain how the actor's character in the first movie got to their situation in the following movie? It's a fun thought experiment, but the answers are actually even better than you might have anticipated...
