While most people would be freaked out to learn they're a terror suspect, Ethan Fishbane was actually impressed with the NYPD diligent investigation. The 23-year-old sparked a massive police response in the West Village last week when he tossed a prop from the play American Suicide Bomber Association, which he wrote, directed, and acted in. Fishbane's super spotted the bomb in his trash, which actually consisted of "two blocks of clay ... a calculator that’s cut in half, and some wires from a Gameboy." "I felt the response was wholly appropriate," Fishbane told the Post. "Even if it’s just a prop for a theater piece, they were on top of it."
