(Newser) – A spoiler-filled interview with his hometown Oklahoma paper proved as dangerous as a rolling ball of death for an extra in the new Indiana Jones movie. Steven Spielberg is furious that the 24-year-old violated his non-disclosure agreement, the Post reports. “Who knows whether that particular person will ever work in this town again?” a Spielberg spokesman said ominously.

Spielberg reportedly cut Tyler Nelson’s scene, in which he played a Russian dancing to celebrate Indy’s capture. While the spoilers were soon online, many sites were pressured to remove them. “He’s in trouble,” Nelson’s agent said. “He’s got to know that he can’t do that.”
